Welcome to San Diego, the eighth-largest city in the United States and second-largest city in California. San Diego is known for its mild year-round climate, natural deep-water harbor, and extensive beaches. San Diego's main economic engines are military and defense-related activities, tourism, international trade, and manufacturing. The presence of the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), with the affiliated UCSD Medical Center, has helped make the area a center of research in biotechnology.
