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.
Explore hidden gems such as Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Rams Hill Golf Club. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around San Diego: Borrego Springs (Borrego Palm Canyon Nature Trail, Slot Canyon, & more), The Bird Watcher (in Julian) and San Diego Zoo Safari Park (in Escondido). Pack the 19th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at SeaWorld San Diego. There's still lots to do: meet the residents at San Diego Zoo, get to know the fascinating history of Oceanside Pier, trek along Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, and pause for some photo ops at Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial.

For maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the San Diego trip planner.

In December, daily temperatures in San Diego can reach 68°F, while at night they dip to 51°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
