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.
Visiting La Jolla Cove and Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve will get you outdoors. Do some cultural sightseeing at USS Midway Museum and Marston House Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Diego: San Juan Capistrano (Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano, Los Rios Historic District, & more), Oceanside Pier (in Oceanside) and Saddleback Church (in Lake Forest). And it doesn't end there: immerse yourself in nature at Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Joseph Cathedral, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at San Diego Zoo, and explore the striking landscape at Point Loma.

For other places to visit, photos, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the San Diego trip website .

Expect a daytime high around 78°F in October, and nighttime lows around 64°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
