San Diego is nicknamed "America's Finest City" for a reason. Known for its 70º average temperature and 70 miles of coastline, it is also home to laid-back people and an abundance of activities. Great weather, amazing food, dog-friendliness, and one of the best craft beer cities in the country make San Diegans happy.

San Diego is the birthplace of California, after its discovery in 1542 by Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo. In 1850, California was admitted to the United States and just 32 years later, San Diego's founding fathers established our Y. 

Fast forward 134 years, we are the second largest Y in the US, responding to over 3 million residents and providing a Sea of Support to nearly 400,000.
