San Diego Fun Facts

Here's some more useful information about San Diego!

San Diego is a city in Southern California on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. It is the second-largest California city and was the first site on the United States' western coastline visited by European explorers. Home to over 1.3 million people, San Diego is a city known for its gorgeous beaches, its association with the United States Navy, and for its adjacency to the U.S.-Mexico border at Tijuana – a popular Mexican tourist town. If you're planning to be in San Diego, and you've used VroomVroomVroom to book your rental car in advance, you might take it for an afternoon or weekend trip and spend some time in Tijuana!

Other visitors to San Diego may prefer to stay in the city for fun, such as a National Football League game at Qualcomm Stadium, home of the San Diego Chargers! The city is also home to Major League Baseball's San Diego Padres, and you can drive your rental car San Diego for a fun afternoon or night game at Petco Park.

San Diego was once called “the tuna capital of the world” as it was home to many American tuna fishing and canning operations for about 70 years (ending in the early 1980s). Now it's not about the tuna, it's all about the tourists – tourism is a major industry, thanks to the city's warm and sunny climate, plenty of beaches, and attractions like the San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld San Diego.

Comic-Con is an annual convention that attracts tens of thousands to the city, and other annual events like the Farmers Insurance Open golf tournament and November's San Diego Beer Week – featuring the local craft beer brewing industry – attract thousands more. If you're in the city during one of these events, you'll be glad you booked your San Diego car rental in advance using VroomVroomVroom, getting the best deal and the best selection for yourself and your family or associates. More than 30 million visitors were drawn to San Diego in 2009, spending around $15 billion in the area. The San Diego Convention Center hosted 68 major conventions and trade shows that year!
