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.
Get some historical perspective at Point Loma and Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial. Explore hidden gems such as La Jolla Shores Park and Oceanside Pier. Venture out of the city with trips to Carlsbad State Beach (in Carlsbad), San Diego Zoo Safari Park (in Escondido) and Laguna Beach (Laguna Beach & Crystal Cove). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, kick back and relax at Coronado Beach, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and admire all the interesting features of Petco Park.
