San Diego is America's finest city. Best weather in the country. Scenery is eye popping. Crime rate is the lowest for all big cities in the US. Downtown is hopping. Gaslamp district is one of the finest and largest nightlife districts around. Conventions are plentiful as are entertainment options from seaworld, to legoland, to the world famous zoo's. Outdoor activities have no limits. Location is perfect for a trek into the bigger city LA or into the resort destinations of Baja. San Diego also has a world famous UCSD, one of the best public colleges in the nation apart of the country's best public school system. Some of the finest gold courses and neighborhoods in the world.

Its really laughable when people compare cities that don't measure up to San Diego despite being much larger. San Diego is just a more desirable city than Houston or Dallas or Atlanta or Miami or Phily or Detroit or Denver or Charlotte. Its more desirable because its safe, clean, family friendly, has a great location, great weather, perfect scenery, great schools, and great neighborhoods. Sure Houston may have some of these things but it will never have a perfect list like San Diego and don't take that offensively because Houston isn't the only big city that fails to measure up to San Diego, think Atlanta, Miami, Dallas, Phily, Detroit, Cleveland, Charlotte, and well 95% of the cities in the country.

City data is not ready to compare the cities in California with the other 49, you outsiders will never grasp the full package our cities offer and you wont ever appreciate it as much as we do. To you outsiders you have to combine your states and your regions in hopes of stacking up to us, we laugh at that hysterically.

This is not arrogance, this is truth that the people of San Diego have done all necessary to create the cleanest, safest, best rounded city America has to offer. Texas isn't a bad state and I do believe its the second state in the US but that doesn't excuse it from falling short to California, the gap between the number one state and the second state is enormous and that speaks for itself about how far behind the rest of this country is to California IMO.
Dude! I thought you were atleast a half way credible poster until I saw this. California is NOT a perfect utopia, & that includes San Diego. SD is in no way superior to most of those cities listed. And the reason people combine states to make it stack up to Cali is because only 2/50 states are larger (only one of those two even come close in pop.)

Never called it a utopia. I just pointed out how its more advance and ahead of the other 49. Some of the political ideas from states like Vermont I would love to have them here but overall no other state comes close.

Never called San Diego a utopia either. I just see threads comparing Miami to San Diego or Phily to San Diego and it makes me scratch my head how cities where crime is rampantly out of control win the discussions and everything San Diego has to offer is overlooked. At least with the case of Houston it's not a murderous hole like those other two cities but its still three times more dangerous than San Diego.

Again I never used the word superior. Superiority and inferiority are words of opinions, I have no use for them. Objectively speaking however, San Diego does have the climate, safety, and reputation to exceed many larger cities.

Well they need to stop. Its not just California I see them do it with, I see them do it with Texas to a much lessor extent. It's called an inferiority complex but people that live their lives in irrelevant states have nothing but inferiority to offer this board. Its a fact that California is #1 and in most cases a fact that Texas or New York are #2 or #3. The sooner people accept their places and admit to what they cant reach, the better.

If you told me you prefer Montana to California, I wouldn't look down on you as a lessor person or your state as a lessor place. I can assure you that much, I have respect for the preferences of others.

But you don't think it's terrible how a certain Houston booster resorted to bashing and misrepresenting San Diego? Which is what lead to the Houston bashing.

Probably because that will give you HYPOTHERMIA. No one can physically handle those type of water temperatures w/o protection. Why is it so hard for you to accept not everyone likes the aspects of CA as much as you?

Yes it is, not everyone prefers or wants what CA has to offer. You seem to rarely, if ever, mention or admit the negative aspects of Ca and its cities.

Why do you read my posts expecting me to "admit" to anything? Why the double standard?

Because they're LIARS. They're lying. Why do you not understand this? Why do you feed them on their anti California double standards?

If San Francisco is 3rd on any list a Miamian or Atlantan or Philadelphian will dismiss it but the next year when their cities edge San Francisco out, then they wont stop their nonsense because all of a sudden the list becomes "credible". It's all a cycle of inferiority for them.

What double standard? My point was your posts lack objectivity and come off as very arrogant.

What the hell are you talking about? So if someone prefers warmer water and the beaches of Florida how does that make them a liar? I prefer the beaches of Florida as well, many people do and it's not hard to understand why either.

You really think if someone doesn't choose CA as their #1 preference for whatever that makes them a "liar"? Give me a break, that sounds so incredibly ignorant. Just accept CA isn't the best at everything and not everyone shares your opinion of it, including myself.

I'm kind of wondering at this point if you're actually trying to make CA look bad with your over-the-top arrogance.

Believe it or not, he's actually saying things exactly as he feels. He's done this many times before and he's just one of those overthetop Californians that has way to much pride in his state.
