San Diego

Trip Planner USA  /  California  /  San Diego

America's Finest City

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. Despite its large size, the city prides itself on a laid-back atmosphere, a welcome break from the typical bustle of other urban centers of its size. One of the country's major hubs for technology, the city has become a favorite vacation destination for those wishing to take advantage of a year-round mild Mediterranean climate, providing seemingly endless opportunities to surf, swim, boat, kayak, in-line skate, walk, hike, or cycle through California's scenic coastal areas. When using our United States road trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
