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.
Take a break from the city and head to Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Your inner history buff will appreciate Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum and Old Point Loma Lighthouse. Explore San Diego's surroundings by going to Lions, Tigers & Bears (in Alpine), Mission San Juan Capistrano (in San Juan Capistrano) and Crystal Cove (in Laguna Beach). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at La Jolla Shores Park, examine the collection at USS Midway Museum, appreciate the extensive heritage of Point Loma, and stroll the grounds of Fort Rosecrans Cemetery.

For reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our San Diego trip itinerary planning site .

In September, daily temperatures in San Diego can reach 79°F, while at night they dip to 68°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
