Yes, it is, because of the weather, because of the location of it. It’s awesome!

There’s so many different places and things to do. You can go to a different niche or nook of the city and do something, feel like you’re on vacation from wherever you live.

To a point. I think they advertise it too much and it’s overpopulated. The population growth needs to slow down. It’s just so overcrowded that I think it’s kind of deteriorating ‘America’s Finest City.’ I moved up to Allied Gardens — I lived in Fashion Valley, but it was getting overpopulated. They have a lot more condos coming into the area and it’s forcing people out.

I would say it’s probably one of them. I think the finest city is where you live in your heart and your soul and your life, and it doesn’t matter where you’re at. But that place is definitely San Diego for me. Every city has its good and its bad, like everything else. San Diego is mostly good.
