21 Experiences That Everyone From San Diego Will Recognize
America's finest city is way more than zoos and beaches.
"It's so beautiful there!" is the first thing that people say when they hear where you're from.
Usually followed by, "You guys have such a great zoo!"
And you get irrationally annoyed when outsiders mix up the San Diego Zoo with the San Diego Wildlife Animal Park.
You understand the beauty of the bro language.
And believe that there are important distinctions between chill bros, dude bros, and surf bros.
You have heard The Anchorman joke about San Diego's real meaning more times than you can count.
When people talk about the Founding Fathers, you can't help but think of Father Junipero Serra.
About 1/3 of your friends growing up lived in a house with an identical floor plan to yours.
You knew immediately that the creature in this photo is not a zebra.
And you forget that it isn't totally normal to leave the country to party on the weekends when you're under 21.
You feel like the controversy about the cross atop Mt. Soledad has been going on for your entire life.
You still believe that there's a village of little people living on Mt. Soledad.
But chances are, you've never actually gone to Comic-Con.
You're still kind of scared of the Whaley House in Old Town.
But not as much as the super-haunted Elfin Forest in North County.
Your friends from home are all getting married in either Balboa Park or the Hotel Del Coronado.
Unless they're Mormon (which a ton of them are), in which case they're getting married in this enchanted but slightly terrifying structure.
Few things remind you of home quite like a lifted Toyota Tacoma.
Except maybe someone chillin' on the beach with a California burrito.
You'll never understand the animosity that Los Angeles and Orange County people have against San Diego.
Because at the end of the day, even if you left San Diego long ago, you are still just a chill bro at heart.
