days
San Diego

Divided into neighborhoods with distinct characters and cultural heritages, San Diego sits just north of the Mexican border and offers visitors a blend of tourist attractions, including a lively nightlife, diverse cuisine, and a thriving musical scene.
Step out of the city life by going to La Jolla Cove and Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. Shop till you drop at Gaslamp Quarter and Seaport Village. Venture out of the city with trips to Casa Romantica Cultural Center (in San Clemente), Oceanside Pier (in Oceanside) and Self-Realization Fellowship Hermitage (in Encinitas). Pack the 21st (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at SeaWorld San Diego. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at USS Midway Museum, take a tour of Maritime Museum of San Diego, steep yourself in history at Marston House Museum, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at San Diego Zoo.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are San Diego International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Palm Springs International Airport. In October in San Diego, expect temperatures between 29°C during the day and 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
