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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes SeaWorld San Diego as well as San Diego Bay Walk. Relax by the water at Windansea Beach and Pacific Beach. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Mission Beach Boardwalk and Point Loma. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Diego: Main Beach (in Laguna Beach), South Carlsbad State Beach (in Carlsbad) and Mission San Juan Capistrano (in San Juan Capistrano). And it doesn't end there: admire the majestic nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, examine the collection at USS Midway Museum, enjoy the sea views from Old Point Loma Lighthouse, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at San Diego Zoo.

To find photos, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our San Diego day trip planning tool .

Expect a daytime high around 77°F in July, and nighttime lows around 68°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
