America's Finest City
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. Despite its large size, the city prides itself on a laid-back atmosphere, a welcome break from the typical bustle of other urban centers of its size. One of the country's major hubs for technology, the city has become a favorite vacation destination for those wishing to take advantage of a year-round mild Mediterranean climate, providing seemingly endless opportunities to surf, swim, boat, kayak, in-line skate, walk, hike, or cycle through California's scenic coastal areas. Plan your vacation with our United States visit site and discover the best things to do in San Diego.
