San Diego
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.
San Diego is known for museums, zoos & aquariums, beaches, parks, and theme parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: meet the residents at San Diego Zoo, let little ones run wild at Balboa Park, pause for some photo ops at Cabrillo National Monument, and stroll through Sunset Cliffs.
