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.
Visit Fort Rosecrans Cemetery and Old Point Loma Lighthouse for their historical value. Discover out-of-the-way places like Mission San Juan Capistrano and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Get out of town with these interesting San Diego side-trips: Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum (in Yorba Linda) and Lions, Tigers & Bears (in Alpine). Next up on the itinerary: explore the striking landscape at Point Loma, stroll around La Jolla Shores Park, appreciate the extensive heritage of Mission Beach Boardwalk, and get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure.
