San Diego Gay and Lesbian Vacations

Your gay San Diego vacation

California’s second-largest city is defined by its geography, with stunning beaches lining its coast to mountains and deserts inland to its border with Mexico. And beyond its family-friendly attractions -- among them the world-famous San Diego Zoo, its safari-like Wild Animal Park, SeaWorld and Legoland in nearby Carlsbad -- the city is quickly becoming known for its sophisticated hotels, dining and nightlife.  The city is young and athletic, with pronounced student, military and surfer populations.
