The U.S. Navy ports, Marine Corps bases, and Coast Guard stations are in or near San Diego. It is the home port of the largest naval fleet in the world which include two Navy supercarriers, several Los Angeles-class submarines, five amphibious assault ships, and many smaller ships.

Jason's thoughts - Big, progressive, modern city. You could easily spend four to six weeks exploring everything. The climate, the ocean proximity, the multi-national multi-cultural atmosphere and the sight seeing possibilities make San Diego a great place to hang out.
Kelly's thoughts - There is so much to do in San Diego and the surrounding area that it can be overwhelming for someone who wants to do it all, like me. I love big cities and I love the ocean. This is all me in one place.
Travel Info - There are many RV parks in and around San Diego though they tend to be hard to find. Many are booked in the summer. Be ready for some elevation changes throughout the area. Some of the state parks can be cheap but many of them do not have sewage hook-ups and others do not have electricity or water but only allow you to park. Make sure when you make reservations that you make sure what you are buying in San Diego area RV parks. Travel 5 miles from Coronado to visit San Diego California.
