CK conference logoCity Information

San Diego, named after Saint Didacus, is the eighth-largest city in the United States. It is known for its ideal climate, miles of beaches and rich heritage. The original site of the city was several miles away at the foot of Presidio Hill. This site was deemed impractical in the late 1860’s due to it’s inconvenient proximity to a water way, and moved to the area that is now downtown San Diego. A significant US Naval presence was established in 1901 and expanded greatly during the 1920s. Currently, San Diego is the site of one of the largest naval fleets in the world. The city is also known for its part in the wildlife conservation movement. San Diego is home to the famous San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park.
