SD has a rivalry with LA because LA is SD's more popular younger brother, takes all that SoCal Sunshine and basks in it.

Fun Fact of The Day: Padres fans are the nicest fans on the planet, from someone who goes to every game, you wouldnt believe it.

1) I was born in LA, and grew up a few thousand feet south of LAX.

2)SD is not more popular.

3) Since when do the Padres have fans?

And you can't really go off I the country to explore, other than a couple of small parks it's all private and fenced property. I've gone bike riding up there a few times and I do enjoy the rolling hills, but Christ, a little snow and the whole f*cking city goes up there and they have to close the access highway down.

Having grown up in the Queen of the Southern Mines in the Motherload/Gold Country, Sonora, I've seen much more impressive 49er mining towns than Hicksville Julian. And for snow I can go to Tahoe, Utah or Maine. No need to sit in traffic for 4 hours for 8" of snow on a few hills with 75k folks from the suburbs trashing the place.

Rancho Sante Fe is another pleasant bike riding place amongst the Eucalyptus groves and also somewhere I would shoot myself if I had to live so removed from my neighbors and society.

I am a realist about San Diego, it's a bit of a boutique city, pleasant and even fun but it doesn't have the vibe, nor the inner city challenges of those few urban centers in the country. But even though I didn't win the Super Lotto last night I feel every day that I won a kind of lottery by settling here in a great house and neighborhood, and damn fine city by the sea and canyons.
that's nice that you feel that way everyone is entitled to like what they like.

I was never trying to "bash" SD. I was just responding to some claims in that member's post that I believed to be incredulous.

if you are used to more mid-size cities and not "mega cities" like NY, or possibly Chicago etc, you MIGHT prefer SD to LA. it's as simple as that imo.

and because SD has more of laid back vibe, it makes sense for it ppl to favor it as a nice place for vacation.

Hey, everyone has their own perceptions, some are based a bit more in exaggerations and stereotypes than others. As someone who grew up with the Northern Californian indoctrination of hating all things Southern California, and in the mountains no less- so we also hated flatlanders and those crazy liberals in The City, I've found much to like in both areas- I've always jokingly say to my Northern California friends, that San Diego is south of Southern California i.e "evil" L.A., that we are a mix of Midwestern (military transplants) and Mexico (Viva!)

I love L.A. but don't need to disparage other places to try to try to prop up my own city. It ain't London, Paris, Berlin, New York or Hong Kong, but I've been to all of those, as well as worked on the family farm in Nebraska, and have a pretty good idea what makes a place exceedingly livable, and still interesting. When I need a little more somepin' somepin' in my life- I just go there for a visit and grab it

I assume that was for the "SOCAL KID", who originally posted what I quoted? But I'll still thank them.

1) i was born in SD, and live a under a mile from mirimar

2) read, LA is SD's younger more popular brother

3) I ask myself that all the time, hometown pride i guess

4) you currently live in San Jose, therefore you must understad that in your time away some stuff has changed

Read it again, are you surprised that I said LA was more popular, or that it was younger than SD?

Yeah, San Diego pre-dates Los Angeles; it was established in 1769, whereas LA was established in 1781.
