Midwesterners who feel land-locked can fly from Kansas City to San Diego in four and a half hours and have their moods transformed by Pacific Ocean breezes and artwork typical of a beach town. Metro Bus service runs to Kansas City International Airport (MCI) seven days a week, and long-term parking is available at the airport. The airport is accessible via Interstate 435 or Highway 71.
San Diego is home to the U.S. Navy s largest base. Explore the Maritime Museum of San Diego, and then stroll south along the bay for a tour of the U.S.S. Midway Museum, a stunning exhibit that's located aboard the decommissioned aircraft carrier of the same name. Seaport Village invites diners and shoppers to enjoy its oceanside outdoor mall. From the bay, it's only a short walk to the Gaslamp Quarter where you'll find the city's hippest restaurants and bars, its best museums and theaters and Petco Park, home of the Padres. Both the La Jolla and San Diego campuses of the Museum of Contemporary Art offer free admission on the third Thursday of every month.
The San Diego International Airport (SAN) is close to downtown. This pedestrian-friendly community encourages the use of the bike path that connects the airport with the heart of downtown. For new arrivals who brought luggage and no bike, commuter trains, taxis and rental cars are available at the airport. The city's average annual high temperature is 70 degrees.
