San Diego

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Carlsbad (The Flower Fields, Carlsbad Village, & more), Temecula (Wine Tours & Tastings, Old Town Temecula, & more) and Self-Realization Fellowship Hermitage (in Encinitas). Pack the 23rd (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at SeaWorld San Diego. There's much more to do: trek along Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, admire all the interesting features of Petco Park, and stroll through La Jolla Shores Park.

For ratings, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our San Diego day trip tool .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airports are San Diego International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Palm Springs International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in April, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
