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.
Get outdoors at La Jolla Cove and Mission Beach Park. Get some historical perspective at Old Point Loma Lighthouse and Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial. And it doesn't end there: immerse yourself in nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, get to know the resident critters at San Diego Zoo, examine the collection at USS Midway Museum, and browse the exhibits of Maritime Museum of San Diego.

For where to stay, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our San Diego journey planning website.

Midland to San Diego is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time to Pacific Standard Time is minus 2 hours. When traveling from Midland in June, plan for much colder days in San Diego, with highs around °F, while nights are a bit cooler with lows around °F.

Norfolk formed around a natural harbor that’s home to the world’s largest naval base, which helped cement the city as a keystone for strategic military planning and government.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Colonial Williamsburg and St. Luke's Historic Church & Museum. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Historic Jamestowne and George Wythe House. Get out of town with these interesting Norfolk side-trips: Williamsburg (Wythe Candy and Gourmet Shop, The Spice & Tea Exchange, &more), Wright Brothers National Memorial (in Kill Devil Hills) and Currituck Beach Lighthouse and Museum (in Corolla). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at Chrysler Museum of Art, enjoy the sand and surf at Virginia Beach, pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Virginia Beach Antique Mall, and make a trip to Flame of Hope Memorial.
