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.
Go for a jaunt from San Diego to Encinitas to see Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens about 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at San Diego Zoo, walk around Balboa Park, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Building and Lily Pond, and browse the exhibits of Maritime Museum of San Diego.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, refer to the San Diego attractions planner.

Indianapolis to San Diego is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Indianapolis to San Diego due to the time zone difference.
