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.
Marston House Museum and Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial will appeal to history buffs. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at USS Midway Museum and San Diego Air & Space Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around San Diego: Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens (in Encinitas), Casa Romantica Cultural Center and Gardens (in San Clemente) and Oceanside Pier (in Oceanside). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at La Jolla Cove, contemplate the long history of Mormon Battalion Historic Site, stroll through Presidio Park, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Building and Lily Pond.
