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.
Get in touch with nature at La Jolla Shores Park and La Jolla Cove. Discover out-of-the-way places like Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and Mission Beach Park. Explore San Diego's surroundings by going to Oceanside Pier (in Oceanside), Encinitas (Self-Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Moonlight Beach) and Carlsbad State Beach (in Carlsbad). There's lots more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at San Diego Zoo, enjoy the sand and surf at Crystal Cove, explore and take pictures at Petco Park, and see the interesting displays at USS Midway Museum.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, go to the San Diego travel 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 September in San Diego, expect temperatures between 31°C during the day and 24°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
