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.
Escape the urban bustle at La Jolla Shores Park and La Jolla Cove. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at South Carlsbad State Beach and Coronado Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from San Diego: Anza-Borrego Desert State Park (in Borrego Springs), Moonlight Beach State Park (in Encinitas) and San Diego Zoo Safari Park (in Escondido). The adventure continues: meet the residents at San Diego Zoo, kick back and relax at Children's Pool, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and stroll through Mission Beach Park.

To see maps, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our San Diego travel route planner .

Expect a daytime high around 78°F in October, and nighttime lows around 64°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
