National Geographic Channel's Worlds Smart Cities: San Diego

National Geographic Channel features San Diego as the only U.S. city in its acclaimed documentary series “World’s Smart Cities”. San Diego was chosen for its strong technology sector, local innovators, green practices, smart public planning and an unparalleled quality of life. Other selection factors included San Diego’s size of population, demographics/cultural diversity, livability, economy and business climate, educational institutions, leadership and strong sense of community.

National Geographic Channel’s “World’s Smart Cities: San Diego” documentary is an unprecedented exploration of the 8th largest U.S. city where technology, talent and innovation create a new urban environment – one that will emerge as a leading city in the 21st century.

“Both business and leisure travelers have known about San Diego’s appealing weather and friendly beach lifestyle for years,” said Joe Terzi, President and CEO of the San Diego Tourism Authority. “However, ‘World’s Smart Cities’ will show viewers worldwide that San Diego has more than a sunny outlook. The city’s talent, innovation and creativity highlighted in this documentary prove that San Diego’s business environment and local culture are among the world’s best.”

  3. They did a lot for downtown but the statement that San Diego did not become suburbanized is false. The majority of the region is suburban. I grew up in a San Diego suburb. I can't afford to live there anymore. I moved to Tijuana. Same great climate, 70% lower cost of living. This is a great advertisement for San Diego, and I love it, but its not very realistically depicted. For one thing, there are pretty bad traffic problems just like everywhere else. Its also extremely spread out (except for places like downtown).
    My parent's suburban 60 year old home with only 1172 square feet is currently on sale for $620,000.

  4. Should not have focussed on "Sea World" – a miserable facility that lives off the extremely unhappy and short lives of its captured creatures. I hate Sea World and so does everyone I know. Only tourists, who don't give it much thought, go to such a place. San Diego isn't the only one. These monstrosities are in many places around the world.

  5. A lot of talk about being green but a painful lack of trees and gardens and such, where is the GREENERY?? That library might be nice but again it's stark and unappealing because it has no plant life.
