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've added Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, Maritime Museum of San Diego, Table Rock Beach, and other attractions to your itinerary. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Petco Park and Pageant of the Masters. Change things up with these side-trips from San Diego: Heisler Park (in Laguna Beach) and Oceanside Pier (in Oceanside). There's still lots to do: get to know the resident critters at San Diego Zoo, step off the mainland to explore Coronado Island, examine the collection at USS Midway Museum, and pause for some photo ops at Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial.
