San Diego has weather and many top attractions
They say that no place in the country has better weather than San Diego with its year-round sunshine and tendency never to get too hot or too cold. But that's just one of the reasons that tourists flock to San Diego as part of their California vacations and getaways. The city is actually several different tourist attractions in one.

The beach crowd will find no better California beaches than those found from Carlsbad on down to the Mexican border. Those looking for theme parks and attractions will find Seaworld, Legoland, the San Diego Zoo and the Wild Animal Park much to their liking. Visitors who enjoy exclusive shopping will love the charming seaside village of La Jolla. Then there's the nightlife and fine restaurants downtown. Throw in some historic sites and access to the Mexican border and you have quite a mix for anyone seeking a varied and rewarding vacation.
