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.
Popular historic sites such as St John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church and Old Town San Diego State Historic Park are in your itinerary. Let the collections at USS Midway Museum and Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting San Diego side-trips: Riverside National Cemetery (in Riverside) and Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens (in Encinitas). Next up on the itinerary: stroll the grounds of Fort Rosecrans Cemetery, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at San Diego Zoo, explore the galleries of Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House, and admire the striking features of Marston House Museum.
