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 itinerary includes some good beach time at La Jolla Cove and Black's Beach. Appreciate the collections at USS Midway Museum and Maritime Museum of San Diego. The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at San Diego Zoo, kick back and relax at La Jolla Shores Park, let the kids burn off some steam at Balboa Park, and stroll through Mission Beach Park.
