- The population of each city is roughly 1.3 million.
- Even with their top ten population rankings, the character of each of the cities is more laid-back than many of the other cities in their respective states.
- There is long history of Hispanic culture that is infused in the architecture, cuisine, and language of the cities.
- There is an absence of cold winters along the general line of latitude where these cities were founded - a characteristic that I am particularly attracted to.
There are also plenty of wonderful differences that make each city unique. When I first discovered that more than 160 alumni lived in San Diego county, I was pleased to know that others who have a common educational background found themselves living 1,275 miles from Trinity University. I wonder, what was the appeal or impetus for your moving to San Diego? What keeps you here?
