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.

The adventure continues: meet the residents at San Diego Zoo, examine the collection at Maritime Museum of San Diego, let little ones run wild at Balboa Park, and immerse yourself in nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve.
