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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Mission San Luis Rey and San Diego Air & Space Museum. Popular historic sites such as Mormon Battalion Historic Site and San Diego Bay Walk are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting San Diego side-trips: Temecula (Wilson Creek Winery & Leoness Cellars) and Moonlight Beach (in Encinitas). There's more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Coronado Beach and stroll through Ocean Beach.
