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.
San Diego is known for museums, zoos & aquariums, beaches, parks, and theme parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: stroll through San Diego Zoo, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Building and Lily Pond, examine the collection at USS Midway Museum, and let little ones run wild at Balboa Park.

For reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our San Diego itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are San Diego International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Palm Springs International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in San Diego can reach 22°C, while at night they dip to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
