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 in touch with nature at La Jolla Cove and Civic Center Park. BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir and Fort Rosecrans Cemetery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore San Diego's surroundings by going to Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano (in San Juan Capistrano), Christ Cathedral (in Garden Grove) and Ruth Mayer Gallery (in Laguna Beach). And it doesn't end there: immerse yourself in nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, experience the excitement of Star Wars Launch Bay, appreciate the history behind Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic Church.
