National City is the second-oldest city in San Diego County (1887). The name is interesting, it started as Rancho del Rey (the Ranch of the King) and morphed into Rancho de la Nación (Ranch of the Nation). The entire area was purchased in 1868 by Warren, Levi and Frank Kimball who move from San Francisco to National City. A railroad station later, National City was born.
National City has an old and deep U.S. Navy history. Naval Base San Diego is a large part of National City. National City is a harbor city and was the red-light district for the Navy along a street known as the “Mile of Bars”. Today automobile dealerships changed the mile of bars to the “Mile of Cars”. The last of the “history” died with the closure of the Pussycat Theater more than 20 years ago. National City landlocked by San Diego, Bonita, Chula Vista, and San Diego Bay.

National city is next to National Steel and Shipbuilding Company (NASCO) and is full of small shops to support NASCO, it is home to the Mile of Car – car dealers, there are a few Shopping areas including Sweetwater Plaza Shopping Center, Price Breakers (Hyland Ave), Westfield Plaza Bonita, Bay Plaza Shopping Center (where we worked on their Monument Sign), Plaza Square, and Grove Plaza. The shopping in Chula Vista puts a lot of pressure on National City. National City is old, industrial and between the Gaslamp District of San Diego and the Coronado Bridge leading to some of the highest price real-estate anywhere. On the other side there is Barrion Logan, Logan Heights, and Sherman Heights. Clearly the Navy, the Shipyards and the age pull the area into an industrial posture, but the area is very close to downtown and the tourist, upper class Coronado. Will National City turn into a trendy new revitalization area? Probably so. It is too valuable to be a shipyard. But know knows.
Before the Miles of Cars, it was the Mile of Bars. Pictures of both here
