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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate USS Midway Museum and Maritime Museum of San Diego. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at La Jolla Cove and Mission Beach Park. Change things up with these side-trips from San Diego: Oceanside Pier (in Oceanside) and Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens (in Encinitas). Pack the 25th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at SeaWorld San Diego. There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, admire the landmark architecture of Marston House Museum, stroll the grounds of Fort Rosecrans Cemetery, and meet the residents at San Diego Zoo.

To see maps, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, read San Diego journey planner .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 61°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
