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.
Bring the kids along to San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld San Diego. Go for a jaunt from San Diego to Carlsbad to see LEGOLAND California about 38 minutes away. There's lots more to do: let the kids burn off some steam at Balboa Park, examine the collection at Maritime Museum of San Diego, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Building and Lily Pond, and immerse yourself in nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve.
