Welcome to sunny San Diego - even in winter the temperature rarely drops below 20 degrees. San Diego is home to some of the world’s best beaches, whether it's riding the waves at La Jolla, or just hanging out in the sand and soaking up the ocean views at Mission Beach. If you’re after something a little more unique, head over to Coronado Island and hang out at the Spanish inspired Hotel Del Coronado for the day.
Downtown San Diego has plenty to offer with popular attractions like the USS Midway, a retired US Navy Aircraft carrier; the historic Gaslamp Quarter with boutique restaurants, shopping and attractions; and Old Town with its renowned fish tacos, a local favorited.
