Welcome to San Diego, often called the birthplace of California.

Start your San Diego tour with a stop in Old Town, a historic park filled with buildings dating back to the 1820s. If you want something a little livelier, go a few miles south to check out the Gaslamp District, full of Victorian-era architecture and a thriving bar and club scene. Bringing the kids with you, or looking for a more sedate afternoon? Stop by the San Diego Zoo and spend some time with the many animals taking up residence there – including some of the few pandas outside of China.

Explore San Diego’s ties to the sea by touring the U.S.S. Midway, Navy Pier, and Maritime Museum. From there, it’s just a skip across the bay to Coronado, where you can lay out in the sun and soak up some rays in a quiet beach town.

Round out your day with a trip to “the jewel,” better known as La Jolla, and indulge in some of the best seafood and Mexican food you’ll find anywhere. Don’t forget to say “Hi” to the sea lions.

  1. I got accepted to UCSD yesterday and I'm an international student who's only been to America like 2 times so I didn't get to explore it much. I've never been to San Diego so I was wondering if anyone can give me some personal insight of how it's like there? The only place I really like in America was San Francisco. Is San Diego anything like that and is it at all like the video portrays it to be?

  2. Is the narrator on this video the same guy who narrated Yosemite, Orange Country, Denver, Chicago & Houston Travel guide video? Love his voice <3

  3. lived in San Diego for 4 years. Moved back to the UK but i miss San Diego every single day. Hopefully i'll be back there at some point in my life <3

  4. My hubby was a career Navy man and we spent 4.5 years in SD, loved it, gorgeous scenery, perfect sunny weather, no need for A/C or even a heater in your home, wonderful beaches, I especially remember the Corvette Diner in Balboa Park. Just wish it wasn't so horrendously expensive home-wise.

  5. Did he just say, "the warm currents of the Pacific Ocean?" Has he been to the beach in Southern California? The water is freezing, even in the Summer. But I'm from the Louisiana Gulf Coast and live not far from the Florida Atlantic coast, so I'm used to a lot warmer water.
