National City is where early San Diego history unfolded. Today, this suburb south of Downtown San Diego is home to more than 58,000 people, but for thousands of years, the area was the capital of the Kumeyaay people, San Diego’s first residents and the creators of an ancient cultural identity. In 1542, the Kumeyaay greeted Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, San Diego’s first European visitor.
Later, the Spanish called the area El Rancho del Rey, which later became El Rancho de la Nacion. A slight mistranslation of that name led to National City’s curious and patriotic name, not because of the many military personnel and families who made National City one of San Diego’s most vibrant suburbs.
Situated on San Diego Harbor to the west and the cool foothills to the east, National City today features many fine residential neighborhoods and continues to benefit from its rich history in the living museum of Heritage Square. With its proximity to Downtown San Diego, National City is one of San Diego’s most unique and vital suburbs.
