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.
San Diego is known for museums, zoos & aquariums, beaches, parks, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire nature's wide array of creatures at San Diego Zoo, examine the collection at Maritime Museum of San Diego, admire the majestic nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, and appreciate the history behind Cabrillo National Monument.

To find where to stay, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our San Diego holiday planner .

Expect a daytime high around 67°F in January, and nighttime lows around 51°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
