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.
On the 10th (Fri), see the interesting displays at USS Midway Museum and then take in the waterfront at Seaport Village. Here are some ideas for day two: appreciate the history behind Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial, then explore the different monuments and memorials at Fort Rosecrans Cemetery, and then take in the dramatic natural features at Point Loma.
