With beautiful beaches, near-perfect weather, and tons of interesting things to do, it’s no wonder San Diego is one of the most desirable places to live in the U.S. And if you’re thinking of starting a family, San Diego is an excellent choice. 

Not only will your family get to enjoy sunny weather and gorgeous sights, but you’ll also have access to top-rated schools; great maternity hospitals, fertility clinics, and surrogacy agencies; and plenty of socially-distanced, family-friendly activities.  

Here are four reasons why San Diego is a wonderful place to start a family in 2021. 

Ideal weather and beautiful surroundings

There’s a reason people talk about San Diego’s weather so much—it truly is amazing. The city has an average of 146 sunny days and 117 partly cloudy days a year, and the temperature gets over 60°F almost every day. With weather like this, it’s easy to get out and explore, and there are so many beautiful places to see. 

San Diego has dozens of beaches (many of which are family-friendly), great parks, kid-friendly hikes, and world-famous attractions like The San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and Legoland. There really is something for everyone in the family. 

Tons of child-friendly activities you can do while social distancing   

These days, many of us are looking for activities we can do outdoors while still staying safe and social distancing, and San Diego’s warm climate and outdoor offerings provide a range of fun options for the whole family. 

While staying home is best, there are still many activities your family can do safely. Have a picnic in Balboa Park, visit the Point Loma Tide Pools, fly a kite at Mission Bay Park, go to a drive-in movie … Just remember to wear your mask and stay at least six feet away from people who aren’t in your household. 

Excellent schools

Of course, it’s not all fun in the sun here … at least on school days. But parents can rest assured that their kids will get a great education in San Diego. San Diego County is home to some of the highest-ranked school districts in California, including Poway Unified School District (ranked #30), Coronado Unified School District (ranked #31), and Carlsbad Unified School District (ranked #38). 

And if you’re considering private schools, San Diego also has top-ranked elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools, including The Bishops School, Francis Parker School, and La Jolla Country Day

Great maternity hospitals, fertility clinics, and surrogacy agencies 

Nicknamed “the birthplace of California,” San Diego is also a great place to give birth (sorry, we had to …) and start a family. There are several maternity hospitals in the city, including Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns, Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, Sharp Grossmont Hospital Women’s Health Center, and UC San Diego Medical Center, Hillcrest

For those looking for fertility clinics, San Diego offers some excellent choices, such as Reproductive Partners Fertility Center, Fertility Institute of San Diego, and San Diego Fertility Center

And if you’re looking to start a family with a surrogate—or if you’re interested in becoming a surrogate mother—there are several great surrogacy agencies in and around San Diego, including Surrogate Parenting Services (SPS), located just over an hour north of San Diego. SPS is one of the oldest and most established full-service surrogacy agencies in California, and we pride ourselves on the exceptional support we provide surrogates and intended parents and the high-quality matches we create. 

Are your bags packed yet? We know you’ll love San Diego and all the amenities that make it one of the best places to start a family in 2021!
