I moved to San Diego a few weeks back. It is incredibly beautiful. There is far more greenery than I typically see in big cities, the air is clean, and traffic is not too bad. The downtown area is surprisingly walkable. I have yet to use public transit, but it appears to have a good public transit system. In short, I am impressed. Clearly, someone has done some things right.
I am hoping the good folks here can cast some light on what went right. I am interested in previous threads on Cyburbia that you think are good (I did a search, to no avail), online resources, opinions, etc. Also looking for any websites with photos, travel info, and so on. Also wondering if any members here work here in a planning capacity. I just want to learn more about it and better understand this city generally, not just from a planning perspective, though that definitely intrigues me.
Thanks in advance.
