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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Irvine Spectrum Center and Old Town Temecula. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Mission San Juan Capistrano and Maritime Museum of San Diego. Get out of town with these interesting San Diego side-trips: Carlsbad (South Carlsbad State Beach & Carlsbad Village), Mission San Luis Rey (in Oceanside) and Del Mar City Beach (in Del Mar). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at La Jolla Shores Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Coronado Beach, stroll the grounds of Fort Rosecrans Cemetery, and appreciate the history behind Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial.
