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.
Change things up with these side-trips from San Diego: Carlsbad (Carlsbad State Beach, LEGOLAND California, & more), Julian (California Wolf Center & Eagle and High Peak Mine) and Encinitas (Moonlight Beach & Self-Realization Fellowship Hermitage). Pack the 23rd (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at SeaWorld San Diego. There's still lots to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at San Diego Zoo, get a taste of the local shopping with Gaslamp Quarter, appreciate the history behind Cabrillo National Monument, and see the interesting displays at USS Midway Museum.

For reviews, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the San Diego sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from Finland, the closest major airports are San Diego International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Palm Springs International Airport. October in San Diego sees daily highs of 29°C and lows of 20°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
