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. San Diego is in California. Customize your holiday with our United States holiday planning website to create an adventure that suits you.
