Just wondering how many San Diegans consider Tijuana part of San Diego?

I never really did while I was growing up in SD.

I don't. But I'm hard pressed to think of any other place where two major cities nearly equal in size have grown up right next to each other on opposite sides of a border. It is a very unique situation.

It's also strange that on one side of the border you have one of the safest big cities in America and on the other side you have a violent city with hundreds of murders a year.

My house is on a hill and the front faces south towards Tijuana. Every night south county is virtually dark, and the hills beyond it (Mexico) are always lit up.

I think many tourists consider Tijuana part of San Diego just because they are close to each other

I heard that if San Diego is picked as one of the cities to host a World Cup game, Tijuana would be apart of it somehow.

I've never heard of San Diego-Tijuana and I've lived here all my life. Don't know what kind of sources and information people of wikipedia found...

There is no official designation that San Diego and TJ are one metro area, but because there is so much foot traffic, people from SD living in TJ vise versa, travelers, business trade, and shopping, TJ is a in a sense part of the SD Metro.

Mainly in the South Bay though, since not too many Mexicans from TJ travel into East County or North County. They mostly confine to the southern parts of the County. You can't deny that TJ helps SD's economy when people cross the border to shop, a lot of rich Mexicans from TJ can be seen shopping at Las Americas mall, Fashion Valley, going to downtown SD to eat, and hanging out at our beaches.

Altogether if you combine the total population of SD County and TJ, it's over 5 million people.
