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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Borrego Palm Canyon Nature Trail. Step out of the city life by going to Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Get out of town with these interesting San Diego side-trips: Borrego Springs (Yaqui Well, Slot Canyon, & more) and Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens (in Encinitas). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at La Jolla Shores Park, have fun at Petco Park, explore and take pictures at Torrey Pines Gliderport, and pause for some photo ops at Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial.

You can plan San Diego trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Expect a daytime high around 68°F in December, and nighttime lows around 51°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
