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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Lions, Tigers & Bears and Fort Rosecrans Cemetery. Change things up with these side-trips from San Diego: Newport Beach (Newport Beach & Balboa Island), Temecula (Wine Tours & Tastings & Old Town Temecula) and Laguna Beach (Heisler Park & Crystal Cove). There's still lots to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at San Diego Zoo, kick back and relax at South Carlsbad State Beach, head off the coast to Coronado Island, and see the interesting displays at USS Midway Museum.

To see reviews, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the San Diego journey planner.

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airports are San Diego International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Palm Springs International Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
