San Diego

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.
San Diego is known for museums, zoos & aquariums, sightseeing, beaches, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: stroll through San Diego Zoo, pause for some photo ops at Cabrillo National Monument, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Building and Lily Pond, and have fun at Balboa Park.

To find photos, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our San Diego sightseeing planner.

In October, daily temperatures in San Diego can reach 77°F, while at night they dip to 64°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
