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.
San Diego is known for museums, zoos & aquariums, beaches, parks, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: meet the residents at San Diego Zoo, kick back and relax at La Jolla Cove, see the interesting displays at USS Midway Museum, and pause for some photo ops at Cabrillo National Monument.

To find maps, photos, reviews, and tourist information, go to the San Diego road trip planning site .

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airports are San Diego International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Palm Springs International Airport. In January, daily temperatures in San Diego can reach 22°C, while at night they dip to 12°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
