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 in touch with nature at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Lions, Tigers & Bears. Fort Rosecrans Cemetery and Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum will appeal to history buffs. Step out of San Diego to go to Laguna Beach and see Crystal Cove, which is approximately 1h 30 min away. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at La Jolla Shores Park, pause for some photo ops at The Unconditional Surrender, stroll through Windansea Beach, and admire the majestic nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve.
