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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and Moonlight State Beach. Step out of the city life by going to La Jolla Shores Park and Coronado Island. Change things up with these side-trips from San Diego: Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens (in Encinitas), South Carlsbad State Beach (in Carlsbad) and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park (in Borrego Springs). The adventure continues: stroll through Coronado Beach, gain insight at Torrey Pines Gliderport, enjoy the sand and surf at Children's Pool, and stop by Little Italy Mercato.
