San Diego Life

San Diego offers an incomparable setting in which to study law. San Diego boasts beaches, bays, estuaries, lakes, hills, canyons, meadows, mountains, deserts, proximity to an international border, and incredible sunsets.

The region has unique cities, towns, and neighborhoods that offer international appeal, great dining, and eclectic entertainment and activities. It’s a hub for outdoor sports and activities. You can’t beat San Diego for sightseeing, whether it is watching a Navy ship returning from sea at the Cabrillo National Monument on the tip of the Point Loma peninsula, or sitting on the sea wall along South Mission Beach to watch the teams compete in beach volleyball. The beach is a way of life in San Diego and stretches from our border with Mexico up through Oceanside, featuring miles of public beaches that grace seaside cities and communities along historic Pacific Coast Highway. 

Cultural arts abound in the area, with nearby Balboa Park being the city’s hub of cultural institutions—just 1 mile from our campus. Balboa Park is known for its beautiful Spanish Colonial Revival architecture with many buildings dating back to their creation at the site for the Panama-California Exposition in 1915 and the California Pacific International Exposition in 1935. Explore the parks 15 museums (select museums free on Tuesdays for San Diego residents), free daily park tours, public organ concerts (Sundays), and spectacular gardens (seven are free daily). There, you’ll also find the world-renowned San Diego Zoo.

The hills of the eastern edges of the county beckon for many, too. Hundreds of people hike Mission Trails Regional Park’s Cowles Mountain every day, burning calories and enjoying the 360-degree views from the peak before the sun sets. Mountain bikers have hundreds of miles of trails to ride, and horse-back riders are often trail mates for hikers in the state and national parks located in San Diego.

Most days are mild with daily temperatures ranging from 55 to 77 degrees year round, although there are day-time highs and night-time lows for every season in every distinct area.
