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.
Escape the urban bustle at Moonlight Beach and Mission Bay Park. Step off the beaten path and head to Windansea Beach and Ocean Beach. When in San Diego, make a side trip to see Del Mar City Beach in Del Mar, approximately 40 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: tour the water at your own pace with Hornblower Cruises & Events.

For photos, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the San Diego trip itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airports are San Diego International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Palm Springs International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
