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 out of the city life by going to Point Loma and South Carlsbad State Beach. Head to Borrego Art Institute and Seaport Villagefor plenty of shopping. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around San Diego: Oceanside Pier (in Oceanside) and Pamo Valley Winery (in Ramona). There's much more to do: immerse yourself in nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, enjoy the sand and surf at La Jolla Cove, steep yourself in history at Mormon Battalion Historic Site, and visit a coastal fixture at Old Point Loma Lighthouse.

For photos, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our San Diego online trip itinerary builder .

In April in San Diego, expect temperatures between 71°F during the day and 58°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
