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 Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and La Jolla Cove. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Old Point Loma Lighthouse and Mormon Battalion Historic Site. Take a break from San Diego with a short trip to Oceanside Pier in Oceanside, about 1h 05 min away. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at USS Midway Museum, contemplate the long history of Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.

To find maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our San Diego day trip planning tool .

In May in San Diego, expect temperatures between 71°F during the day and 61°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
