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 a sense of the local culture at USS Midway Museum and San Diego Air & Space Museum. Step out of the city life by going to La Jolla Cove and San Diego Zoo. Venture out of the city with trips to Mission San Juan Capistrano (in San Juan Capistrano), Encinitas (Moonlight Beach & Self-Realization Fellowship Hermitage) and Corona Del Mar State Beach (in Corona del Mar). Pack the 18th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at SeaWorld San Diego. The adventure continues: immerse yourself in nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, stroll through Black's Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Coronado Beach, and let the kids burn off some steam at Balboa Park.
