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.
Explore hidden gems such as Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and South Carlsbad State Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Slot Canyon. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Diego: Borrego Palm Canyon Nature Trail (in Borrego Springs) and Vineyard Grant James (in Ramona). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at La Jolla Cove, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, meet the residents at San Diego Zoo, and appreciate the history behind Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial.

To see where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the San Diego trip builder site .

In February, daytime highs in San Diego are 68°F, while nighttime lows are 53°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
