Things You Should Know Before Embarking on a Cross Country Move to San Diego

Are you thinking about moving to San Diego and transforming your life into a permanent vacation? If so, we at Cross Country Moving Company have compiled some things you should know about San Diego first.

The Weather

The weather in San Diego really is what it is cracked up to be. The average temperature throughout the year is above 60 degrees. The average highest temperature is 69, while the average low is just below 60. If you are moving to San Diego, organize a garage sale and get rid of all those winter coats and sweaters you will never need again - packing them would be a waste of time and moving boxes.

The Nature

The nature of San Diego is spectacular. Whether you are more of a beach person, or enjoy hiking, San Diego has a lot to offer to you. What about caves? Yes, it has caves too. No matter which outdoor or indoor activities you enjoy, moving to San Diego is a smart decision.


San Diego is, as you probably already know, really close to Mexico. This means that whenever you feel bored and have nothing to do you can just hop into your car, pick up a couple of friends and go for a one-day road trip to the country of tequila.

College Students

If you are young and outgoing, you are bound to make friends, as San Diego is major student center. It is home to numerous colleges. This means that San Diego is a loud city hand-made for party-goers. Aside from this, college campuses offer plethora of cheap lectures, exhibitions, and performances.


While San Diego is a great location for swimmers and surfers, you should be careful when it comes to in-water activities. The ocean is the home of sharks, so swimming outside designated areas can be extremely dangerous.

San Diego Padres

Petco Park, the San Diego Padres stadium is a marvellous place to spend time in, whether you are a fan or not. In fact, even if you are not a baseball fan at all, you might still end up being surprised by how much you love the place.

There Are Seals

San Diego’s varied nature means a varied fauna as well. Owing to that fact, you are likely to encounter wild seals on your afternoon walk through the La Jolla Cove. While they might seem cute and cuddly, we do not recommend disturbing the seals.
These wildlife beauties are not the only seals you may encounter in San Diego. Head over to Coronado and find out where and how the Navy SEALS train. If you’re lucky, you might actually see their training live.

Sorry to disappoint you, but no, there are no wild pandas roaming freely around San Diego. However, the famous San Diego Zoo has been home to pandas for over twenty years already. It currently has three pandas. Although San Diego Zoo is not exactly what one would call cheap, trust us, it is worth the money. To see what other animals call this zoo their home, click here . 

Balboa Park

Are you a fan of marvellous parks? If so, head over to Balboa Park and get lost in its beauty. Not a fan of long walks? Don’t worry, there is free wi-fi in the park, so sit on one of the benches and watch an episode of Sherlock while not feeling guilty for being inside in such fine weather.

Farmers Markets

When we say San Diego Farmers Markets, we are talking organic, home-made, highest-quality produce, tasty and juicy fruits and vegetables. If you prefer cooking to dining out, this will be your new safe haven.


Being that San Diego is so close to Mexico, it only makes sense that it has amazing Mexican food. It does. Whether you prefer true burn-your-guts-spicy Mexican food, or you’re more of a fan of the milder, American variety, you will find the perfect joint for yourself.

Craft Beer

If you are not a fan of massively-produced branded beers, you are bound to like one of the local San Diego brewers’ beers. Even if you are, you will change your mind once you tried locally brewed beer. Trust us, we know what we are talking about. If you want to know more about San Diego craft beer, click here . 

More Food

Remember the American variety of Mexican food we mentioned? There’s more to it than just being less spicy. We’re talking burritos with fries. This specialty is known as California Burrito and we love it. So will you. If you don’t, you’re lying.


The USS Midway Museum is the first thing that comes to our mind when you say San Diego museums. That is because it is quite special – it is known as a floating museum. If this is not your thing, there are many other museums and galleries you may want to visit, such as:
The San Diego Museum of Art , where you can do much more than just enjoy beautiful art pieces - the museum organizes programs and events of all sorts;
The San Diego Museum of Man , where you will learn all about the history and the hidden treasures of the human race;
The San Diego Natural History Museum , where you can learn all about various kinds of animals, from dinasours to cats.
The Museum of Contemporary Art , where you can learn all about contemporary architecture and other arts.
The Children’s Discovery Museum , where you can take your young ones to have fun and learn something along the way. 

Comic Con

Are you an old-school fan of comics? In fact, don’t even answer the question, just head to Comic Con, where you are bound to have a lot of fun, regardless of whether you like thought bubbles or not. It is an international event hosted annually that attracts countless visitors. To learn more about Comic Con, click here .
