San Diego combines California cool with family attractions, and nightlife with wildlife.
California’s second-biggest city has all the urban attractions you’d expect, like top restaurants and museums, but being on the coast it also has a fresh-air feel, with beaches, ports and marinas. It’s also one of the best places in Southern California for whale-watching trips. There are no fewer than 16 museums in Balboa Park alone, where you’ll also find the impressive San Diego Zoo. It’s a cliché to say it, but San Diego really does have something for everyone.
