About San Diego County

How to Beat a San Diego County Traffic Ticket

In November of 1602, Sebastian Vizcaino surveyed San Diego harbor and what is now Mission Bay and Point Loma, naming the area for Saint Didacus, more commonly known as San Diego. San Diego County became a part of the United States as a result of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848 and became one of the original counties of California when California gained statehood in 1850. At the time of establishment, the County of San Diego covered the entire border between California and Mexico, yet has been since divided into parts of Los Angeles, Inyo, San bernardino, Riverside, and Imperial Counties. Significant U.S. Navy presence began in the area in 1901, with the Navy Coaling Station in Point Loma followed by Camp Kearny (now Marine Corps Air Station Miramar) and the Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. By the early 1990s, 20% of the region’s economy was dependent on defense spending.

Located in the most southwestern corner of the state, San Diego County encompasses 4,526 square miles and is home to an estimated 3.34 million people, making it the second most populous county in California after Los Angeles County and the fifth most populous county in the United States. San Diego County is the United States’ leading producer of avocados and nursery crops and is one of the top five egg-producing counties.

Tourism also plays a large part in San Diego County attracting thousands of visitors to destinations like Balboa Park, Torrey Pines Golf Course, SeaWorld amusement park, and the San Diego Zoo. San Diego County also includes the University of California, San Diego, San Diego State University, and University of San Diego.
