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.
Family-friendly places like Disney California Adventure Park and Cabrillo National Monument will thrill your kids. Explore San Diego's surroundings by going to Anaheim (Radiator Springs Racers & Downtown Disney), Oceanside Pier (in Oceanside) and California Wolf Center (in Julian). There's much more to do: observe the fascinating underwater world at SeaWorld San Diego, immerse yourself in nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, kick back and relax at La Jolla Cove, and let the kids burn off some steam at Balboa Park.
