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 Main Beach and Pacific Beach. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Fort Rosecrans Cemetery and Mission San Juan Capistrano. Get out of town with these interesting San Diego side-trips: Crystal Cove (in Laguna Beach), Carlsbad (South Carlsbad State Beach & Carlsbad Village) and Oceanside Museum of Art (in Oceanside). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at USS Midway Museum, take a leisurely stroll along Seaport Village, get to know the resident critters at San Diego Zoo, and enjoy the sea views from Old Point Loma Lighthouse.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the San Diego tour itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are San Diego International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Palm Springs International Airport. In August, daytime highs in San Diego are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
