A quick study of the County Map will give you a good understanding of the five geographical regions of San Diego County, which are color-coded. Plus, it shows the layout of the freeway system, and the Red Trolley and Coaster railroad lines. The major freeways run north and south and Highway 8 and lesser freeways run east and west.

Definitely visit Cabrillo Monument, time permitting. It’s a historic landmark (see the Point Loma Chapter) offering a breathtaking, sweeping 100-mile, view of San Diego County and Baja California, Mexico in all directions. From this vantage point, the locations of the cities and suburbs will immediately fall into place. It’s also one of the most visited national monuments in the United States. Be sure to bring a warm jacket or sweater because a chilling ocean breeze is often blowing.

The numbers on each suburb map correspond to their boldfaced numbers in the text.
