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.
Explore hidden gems such as Borrego Art Institute and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at La Jolla Shores Park and South Carlsbad State Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around San Diego: The Bird Watcher (in Julian), Oceanside Pier (in Oceanside) and Temecula (Old Town Temecula & Wilson Creek Winery). There's lots more to do: explore the striking landscape at Point Loma, pause for some photo ops at Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial, explore the different monuments and memorials at Fort Rosecrans Cemetery, and examine the collection at Mission San Juan Capistrano.

For where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the San Diego day trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 71°F in May, and nighttime lows around 61°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
