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.
Let the collections at Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum and San Diego Model Railroad Museum capture your imagination. Step off the beaten path and head to La Jolla Shores Park and Mission Bay Park. Venture out of the city with trips to San Juan Capistrano (Mission San Juan Capistrano & Montanez Adobe), Crystal Cove (in Laguna Beach) and South Carlsbad State Beach (in Carlsbad). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Windansea Beach, stroll through Pacific Beach, see the interesting displays at USS Midway Museum, and stroll around La Jolla Cove.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are San Diego International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Palm Springs International Airport. In January in San Diego, expect temperatures between 22°C during the day and 12°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
