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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. Explore San Diego's surroundings by going to The Bird Watcher (in Julian), San Diego Zoo Safari Park (in Escondido) and Borrego Springs (Borrego Palm Canyon Nature Trail, Slot Canyon, & more). Next up on the itinerary: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Building and Lily Pond, see where the action happens at Petco Park, and see the interesting displays at Maritime Museum of San Diego.

To see reviews, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, use the San Diego travel planner.

Expect a daytime high around 68°F in December, and nighttime lows around 51°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
