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.
Take a break from the city and head to Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and Lions, Tigers & Bears. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at USS Midway Museum and Marston House Museum.

The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at San Diego Zoo, kick back and relax at La Jolla Cove, tour the pleasant surroundings at Black's Beach, and pause for some serene contemplation at Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church.
