The city for sunshine, muscles and the military, where residents pay to play.
Ah, San Diego: Its perfect weather and sun-soaked summers seem to last nearly all year. Explore the great city parks, the zoo and the blue water beaches; then grab a cup of Joe and head out for some California-style endurance shopping. But even paradise is not perfect. Longtime San Diegans refer to their city as "the flea capital of the country." And if you're looking for cheap digs, they're as hard to find as a flea-free feline. All that fun has a price.
