Visit San Diego

Introduction

San Diego is a wonderfully relaxing city, blessed with brilliant year-round weather, beautiful beaches, and plenty of family-friendly attractions.

Located on California's southern border with Mexico, San Diego's 70 miles of beaches, rocky cliffs, coves and seaside resorts provide plenty of opportunities for leisure activities.

Mission Bay is a great base for first time visitors, perfect for walking, biking and rollerblading. Mission Beach and Pacific Beach are also not to be missed.

La Jolla is an elegant coastal neighbourhood of fine homes, stylish boutiques and cafes, as well as a colony of sea lions that grace the rocks around La Jolla Cove, while Coronado Island is home to 'California's best beach' and retains a distinctly village feel since being developed in the late 19th century as 'the largest seaside resort in the world'.

San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter is one of the most exciting downtown areas in the US, with more than 100 restaurants, and 40 clubs and bars, including the Altitude Sky Lounge above Petco Park baseball stadium.

Families will want to take a citywide trolley tour to uncover the major landmarks, discover the renowned San Diego Zoo, enjoy wildlife displays at Seaworld, unwind at Legoland, and tour Culture-filled Balboa Park, home to 25 different museums - such as the Science Centre and Natural History - as well as the Botanical Gardens.

San Diego is also packed with outdoor activities, from surfing, sailing and sea kayaking to hiking and golf at more than 92 golf courses.
