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 off the beaten path and head to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. Get out of town with these interesting San Diego side-trips: Carlsbad (Carlsbad State Beach, Carlsbad Village, & more), San Diego Zoo Safari Park (in Escondido) and Borrego Springs (Coyote Canyon, Galleta Meadows, & more). Pack the 24th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at SeaWorld San Diego. Next up on the itinerary: meet the residents at San Diego Zoo, don't miss a visit to Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and enjoy the sand and surf at La Jolla Shores Park.

In April, daytime highs in San Diego are 24°C, while nighttime lows are 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
