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.
Old Point Loma Lighthouse and Mormon Battalion Historic Site will appeal to history buffs. Take a break from San Diego with a short trip to Oceanside Pier in Oceanside, about 1h 05 min away. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at USS Midway Museum, pause for some photo ops at Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial, tour the pleasant surroundings at La Jolla Cove, and admire the landmark architecture of Marston House Museum.
