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.
Step out of the city life by going to Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and La Jolla Cove. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like USS Midway Museum and San Diego Air & Space Museum. There's much more to do: meet the residents at San Diego Zoo, kick back and relax at Children's Pool, and shop like a local with Gaslamp Quarter.

To find reviews, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the San Diego vacation planner.
