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.
Attractions like San Diego Zoo and La Jolla Cove make great kid-friendly stops. Take a break from San Diego with a short trip to LEGOLAND California in Carlsbad, about 40 minutes away. Pack the 30th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at SeaWorld San Diego. Next up on the itinerary: take in nature's colorful creations at Balboa Park, see the interesting displays at San Diego Model Railroad Museum, admire the majestic nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, and stroll through Sunset Cliffs.
