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 discover tucked-away gems like Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Point Loma. Popular historic sites such as Oceanside Pier and Mormon Battalion Historic Site are in your itinerary. When in San Diego, make a side trip to see San Diego Zoo Safari Park in Escondido, approximately 42 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial, visit a coastal fixture at Old Point Loma Lighthouse, appreciate the extensive heritage of San Diego Bay Walk, and stroll the grounds of Fort Rosecrans Cemetery.

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

In January, daytime highs in San Diego are 67°F, while nighttime lows are 51°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 28th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
