San Diego has long been known as the family vacation destination in the United States, as home to the popular Sea World and the San Diego Zoo, but this oceanside destination with a touch of Mexican flavor has much more to offer than theme parks. San Diego has a relaxed seaside vacation-like atmosphere, but this bustling young city is also an important economic and education center for the United States. With a long history of being a naval city, San Diego has proudly grown into an important city for health and biotechnology development.
San Diego’s history as a part of Mexico is reflected in its architecture mixture of modern crystal towers and colonial revival style buildings. Balboa Park is perhaps one of the best examples of this, housing many museums and cultural centers in beautifully maintained botanic gardens. Apart from intersting sites, San Diego has also been named America’s Craft Beer Capital, hosting a week long beer festival every November. Here there is no better way to practice new found English skills than relaxing and enjoying a craft beer with the locals.
