America's Finest City

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.
On the 3rd (Sat), examine the collection at USS Midway Museum, kick back and relax at Windansea Beach, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Pacific Beach. Here are some ideas for day two: tour the pleasant surroundings at Coronado Beach, then stroll the grounds of Fort Rosecrans Cemetery, then enjoy the sea views from Old Point Loma Lighthouse, and finally appreciate the history behind The Unconditional Surrender.
