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'll find plenty of places to visit near San Diego: Lions, Tigers & Bears (in Alpine), Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens (in Encinitas) and LEGOLAND California (in Carlsbad). There's still lots to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at San Diego Zoo, stroll through Sunset Cliffs Natural Park, admire the majestic nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, and let the kids burn off some steam at Balboa Park.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, use the San Diego online attractions planner .

In September, plan for daily highs up to 79°F, and evening lows to 68°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
