America's Finest City

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.
San Diego is known for zoos & aquariums, museums, and beaches. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get to know the resident critters at San Diego Zoo, let little ones run wild at Balboa Park, kick back and relax at La Jolla Cove, and glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour.
