Brief History

In 20,000 BC Hunting peoples of northeast Asia follow throngs of Caribou, bison, and mammoth across the current day Bering Strait, which at various points in this period is a grassy plain a thousand miles broad. They then move south along ice-free corridors into the American continents.

In May 1769, Gaspar de Portolà established the Fort Presidio of San Diego on a hill near the San Diego River. And on July 16, 1769, the first California mission, San Diego de Alcalá, was devoted.

Later, Serra went on to settle a string of 21 California missions, with some 5,000 Indian follower within their walls, before his death in 1784.

From the beginning of the 20th century through the 1970s, the American tuna fishing fleet and tuna canning industry were situated in San Diego, “The Tuna capital of the world”.

San Diego’s first tuna cannery was established in 1911, and by the mid-1930s the canneries hired more than 1,000 people.

Geography

San Diego is just 20 miles north of Mexico, located in the rolling hills and mesas that increase from the Pacific shore to unite with the Laguna Mountains to the east.

San Diego no longer selects to be characterized merely by 70 miles of beaches, greatest weather, a forward-leaning zoo, or its maritime history.

The city lies on generally 200 deep canyons and hills spliting its mesas, building small pockets of natural open space spread all over the city and offering it a bumpy geography.

The city masks a huge spot of immensely contrasting landscape: miles of ocean and bay shoreline, heavily forested hills, fruitful valleys, and mountains, canyons, and desert.

Downtown’s rebirth has been most breathtaking, arising in the Gaslamp Quarter, followed by a new ballpark in 2004 and block after block of restaurants, hotels, and condos, turning the city into a major convention destination.

In its 2013 ParkScore ranking, The Trust for Public Land reported that San Diego had the 9th-best park system among the 50 most populous US cities.
