San Diego

Experience Your Best San Diego Vacation

Four things are taken very seriously in San Diego: sunset views, good margaritas, surfing and family time. When your vacation plans need a pick-me-up head down to the sunny U.S. border city where life is decidedly upbeat. San Diego vacations quench the need for fun and relaxation from Balboa Park to SeaWorld.

Whether you’re into marine life, military culture or craft beer, our San Diego travel guide is for anyone who likes sunshine in their life, even in December. Especially in December.

  • One of the main draws of a San Diego vacation is that the weather is pleasant year-round -- temperatures range from 60 to 80 degrees. That said, there can be some distinct differences in the travel seasons. For example, the boardwalk from Belmont Park to Pacific Beach is a bustling family hotspot in summer and a quiet jogging path come fall. Grey skies in May and June are common, so August and September are better bets for sunshine and ocean temps that don’t require a wetsuit. October, February and March are in-between months when travel rates are lowest.

  • Ocean Beach

    Hunt for antiques in the funky Ocean Beach neighborhood, followed by an evening stroll along nearby Sunset Cliffs.

  • Padres parking tip

    See a Padres game at the modern Petco Park without the hassle of parking downtown. Park at Qualcomm Stadium for free and ride the Trolley straight to the stadium.

  • Lestat's coffee shop

    Let 24-hour coffee shop Lestat’s be your window into the hip North Park/Normal Heights neighborhood. Lattes are strong and tongue-in-cheek gargoyle décor is a break from San Diego’s otherwise sunny personality.

  • Encinitas gardens

    Explore the (free) gardens at the Encinitas Self-Realization Fellowship Hermitage and Meditation Gardens. You’ll be asked to keep voices down and cell phones off while strolling among koi ponds and peering over surfers from a pelican point-of-view.

  • Neighborhood Ale House

    Finding a place to start amid the country's best craft beer scene might be intimidating. Neighborhood Ale House (downtown San Diego) offers samples and an innovative California burger menu. Or make a day of it: Several brewery tour operators will pick you up from your hotel.
