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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at La Jolla Shores Park and Crystal Cove. Do your shopping at Desert Hills Premium Outlets and Irvine Spectrum Center. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around San Diego: South Carlsbad State Beach (in Carlsbad), Anza-Borrego Desert State Park (in Borrego Springs) and Vineyard Grant James (in Ramona). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, take a stroll through Old Town Temecula, stroll through Point Loma, and enjoy the sand and surf at Del Mar City Beach.

Plan trip to San Diego with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

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. Expect a daytime high around 26°C in November, and nighttime lows around 16°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
