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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Windansea Beach and Moonlight State Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at Mission San Juan Capistrano and Fort Rosecrans Cemetery. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around San Diego: South Carlsbad State Beach (in Carlsbad), Del Mar City Beach (in Del Mar) and Lions, Tigers & Bears (in Alpine). Next up on the itinerary: walk around La Jolla Shores Park, look for all kinds of wild species at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, appreciate the extensive heritage of Mission Beach Boardwalk, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Coronado Beach.

For ratings, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the San Diego online itinerary planner .

In September, plan for daily highs up to 79°F, and evening lows to 68°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
