Newb’s Guide to SD

Oct 27, 2017 -

New to San Diego and looking to get acclimated asap? Don’t worry, we got you.

Like any big city, San Diego has its quirks. You’ve probably asked yourself, “why do people here say “the” before freeway names?” and “Why is PB and OB abbreviated, but not Mission Beach?” Another insider tip: locals don’t say “Cali.” For many transplants, it takes years to learn these little idiosyncrasies and actually sound like a local. But San Diego Magazine put together The Newcomer’s Guide to San Diego to help speed up the process. See below for some of our faves to help you fully embrace becoming a San Diegan.
