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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Point Loma, Dolphin & Whale Watching, and other attractions. Bring the kids along to San Diego Zoo and Cabrillo National Monument. Pack the 31st (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at SeaWorld San Diego. The adventure continues: let the kids burn off some steam at Balboa Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Children's Pool, examine the collection at USS Midway Museum, and tour the pleasant surroundings at La Jolla Cove.

For where to stay, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our San Diego road trip planner.

In December, daytime highs in San Diego are 68°F, while nighttime lows are 51°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
