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.
Step off the beaten path and head to La Jolla Shores Park and Moonlight State Beach. Get a sense of the local culture at Old Town Temecula and Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial. Change things up with a short trip to Del Mar City Beach in Del Mar (about 32 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Windansea Beach, steep yourself in history at Mormon Battalion Historic Site, explore the different monuments and memorials at Fort Rosecrans Cemetery, and wander the streets of Little Italy.

In August, daytime highs in San Diego are 78°F, while nighttime lows are 68°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
