In addition to over 70 miles of beaches, San Diego is also home to the historical site of Old Town State Park, the world-renowned San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park, Sea World, the Old Globe Theatre, and centrally located Balboa Park, with its 13 museums, Japanese Garden, outdoor organ pavilion, and many other attractions.
San Diego is also a rich and diverse cultural mecca with a heavy emphasis on the performing arts. San Diego is home to two Tony Award-winning theatres (the Old Globe Theatre and the La Jolla Playhouse), a thriving San Diego Opera, and dozens of dance companies, theater groups, and popular musical entertainers. San Diego's temperate climate make its many outdoor concerts at a variety of venues a particularly enjoyable activity.
Amateur athletes find San Diego's beaches, canyons, backroads, and facilities make it an ideal place to train and compete. Chula Vista is home to the US Olympic Training Center. The Center has sport venues and support facilities for archery, beach volleyball, BMX, canoe/kayak, cycling, field hockey, rowing, rugby, soccer, tennis, track & field, triathlon, and cross-training abilities for various winter sports. On the professional sports scene, spectators follow the Padres (baseball), the Chargers (football), and the Sockers (indoor soccer). Seasonal events include Rancho Santa Fe Polo and the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club's racing season as well as numerous golf tournaments and tennis matches.
San Diego has evolved into an ideal place to visit, work and live. It truly deserves the moniker "America's Finest City."
