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.
Get out of town with these interesting San Diego side-trips: LEGOLAND California (in Carlsbad) and Self-Realization Fellowship Hermitage (in Encinitas). Pack the 12th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at SeaWorld San Diego. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through San Diego Zoo, enjoy the sand and surf at Mission Beach Park, immerse yourself in nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, and shop like a local with Gaslamp Quarter.

For where to stay, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, read San Diego vacation planner.
