Times of San Diego is an independent, online news site covering the fifth most populous county in the United States.

San Diego County is a study in size and contrast. It is home to as many people as Iowa and as large in area as Connecticut. A one-hour drive will take you from the ocean over mountains to the desert.

It is one of the leading producers of agricultural products — first nationally in avocados — but also the world center for unmanned aircraft and smartphone technology.

The military complex that includes naval facilities around the bay and Marine installations at Miramar and Camp Pendleton is the largest military concentration on earth.

Just south of San Diego is Tijuana, a community almost as large and connected through the world’s busiest border crossing.
