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.
Go for a jaunt from San Diego to Encinitas to see Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens about 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: meet the residents at San Diego Zoo, kick back and relax at La Jolla Cove, appreciate the history behind Cabrillo National Monument, and get a taste of the local shopping with Gaslamp Quarter.

To find maps, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our San Diego online trip itinerary planner .

In April, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 58°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
