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.
Get some historical perspective at St John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church and Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum. Get a sense of the local culture at USS Midway Museum and Old Town San Diego State Historic Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Saddleback Church (in Lake Forest) and Riverside National Cemetery (in Riverside). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at La Jolla Cove, visit a coastal fixture at Old Point Loma Lighthouse, steep yourself in history at Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House, and see the interesting displays at Maritime Museum of San Diego.

To see maps, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, read our San Diego road trip planner.

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. October in San Diego sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
