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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens (in Encinitas) and Disney California Adventure Park (in Anaheim). The adventure continues: meet the residents at San Diego Zoo, try out the rides at SeaWorld San Diego, tour the pleasant surroundings at La Jolla Cove, and let little ones run wild at Balboa Park.

For reviews, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read San Diego route planning tool .

In December, daytime highs in San Diego are 68°F, while nighttime lows are 51°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
