Explore San Diego.

San Diego, with its seemingly endless stretches of beaches, beautiful weather, and laidback attitude, is a Southern California paradise. Families, surfers, history buffs, and everyone in between will find something to love about America’s Finest City. And, good news—the airport is just minutes from downtown by car, bus, or even bike, so you can hop off your flight and right into the action!

One of San Diego’s most well-known attractions is Balboa Park. This huge park encompasses numerous museums and cultural monuments, including the famous San Diego Zoo. The park itself was built for the Panama California Exhibition of 1915-1916, and many of the original Spanish-style buildings still stand. Inside the park, visitors can browse the collections at the San Diego Museum of Art, the San Diego Air & Space Museum, the anthropological Museum of Man, the San Diego Natural History Museum, and more. Don’t feel like going indoors? Explore koi ponds, cherry blossoms, waterfalls, and bonsai trees at the Japanese Friendship Garden or hike one of Balboa Park’s 65+ miles of trails.

No trip to San Diego is complete without a visit to the beach! From calm Coronado Beach to family-friendly Del Mar Beach to sandy and picturesque Pacific Beach, you won’t tire of fun in the sun. Try out kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, and surfing at La Jolla Shores, or try your hand at beach volleyball on the courts at Moonlight Beach. Kids and adults alike will love Belmont Park, a small beachfront amusement park on Mission Beach Boardwalk with a roller coaster, mini golf, zip lining, and more. When you’ve worked up an appetite after a long day in the sun, recharge with a California burrito, fresh fish tacos, and a locally brewed IPA!
