San Diego – An Amazing Blend of History and Modernity!
History is a misty blend of facts and myths; some romantic, some brutal; some recorded, some existing in memories; some talked about only in whispers, some bragged about at every opportunity.
History is a log of every passing moment!
History has it, that change is the only constant. People change tastes, personalities, appearances and attitudes, places bloom from little towns into bustling cities…and the cycle of change moves on.
However some places manage to keep their pristine identity and cultural heritage intact through historic monuments, museums and natural wonders while warmly absorbing the crosswinds of modernism and change.
San Diego is one such place.
This stunningly beautiful city can take equal pride in being called the top biotech cluster in the US as also in its distinction as the first landing spot in California for Portuguese navigational explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo.
Cabrillo, the first European to touch Californian soil at San Diego Bay, is remembered with reverence in the Cabrillo National Monument created in his memory.
More evidence to history and modernity living cheek-by-jowl in San Diego can be found in its being home to companies offering next generation solutions in biotechnology and wireless cellular technology, as well as being home to the Star of India – the world’s oldest active sailing ship parked in San Diego Maritime Museum.
If that is not enough, take a stroll in Balboa Park during the day soaking in the rich history and art works in several museums like Museum of Man, the San Diego Museum of Art etc. and in the night go for unadulterated revelry at Gaslamp Quarters.
