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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes The Field Irish Pub, barleymash, Bottlecraft Beer Shop & Tasting Room - Little Italy, and other attractions you added. USS Midway Museum and Old Point Loma Lighthouse are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at La Jolla Shores Park and South Carlsbad State Beach. Get out of town with these interesting San Diego side-trips: Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens (in Encinitas) and Carlsbad Village (in Carlsbad). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at La Jolla Cove, explore the different monuments and memorials at Fort Rosecrans Cemetery, take in the dramatic natural features at Point Loma, and let little ones run wild at Balboa Park.
