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.
You'll get in some beach time at La Jolla Cove and Children's Pool. Escape the urban bustle at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and Black's Beach. Explore San Diego's surroundings by going to Lions, Tigers & Bears (in Alpine), Ranch Santa Fe Golf Course (in Rancho Santa Fe) and Laguna Mountain Recreation Area (in Mount Laguna). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at USS Midway Museum, step aboard Maritime Museum of San Diego, find something for the whole family at SeaWorld San Diego, and kick back and relax at Mission Beach Park.

For reviews, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our San Diego road trip tool .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are San Diego International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Palm Springs International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
