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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like San Diego Zoo and La Jolla Shores Park. Your inner history buff will appreciate Point Loma and Fort Rosecrans Cemetery. Change things up with these side-trips from San Diego: Del Mar City Beach (in Del Mar), South Carlsbad State Beach (in Carlsbad) and Lions, Tigers & Bears (in Alpine). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Pacific Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at La Jolla Cove, step off the mainland to explore Coronado Island, and get interesting insight from Tours.
