Welcome to San Diego

Welcome to San Diego and the Town & Country Resort and Convention Center

SPIE Medical Imaging 2019
Town and Country Resort & Convention Center
500 Hotel Circle North, San Diego, CA 92108

Welcome to San Diego
With 70 miles of beautiful beaches, near-perfect weather year-round, and a variety of magnificent settings countywide, San Diego offers a fun and inexpensive getaway, for kids and adults, any time of year. No stay in San Diego is complete without a trip to the waterfront. San Diego Bay is bustling with activity, as it serves as the homeport for Navy ships, a large sportfishing fleet, thousands of pleasure craft, and the USS Midway Museum is a retired aircraft carrier that now serves as a fascinating interactive floating museum. The largest urban cultural park in the United States, Balboa Park is often referred to as the "Smithsonian of the West." Its 1,200 lush acres are home to 85 cultural attractions, including 15 museums, eight gardens and the San Diego Zoo.

San Diego Trolley - Metropolitan Transit System
Trolley cars are red and travel above ground on light rail lines every 15 minutes.

Or you can purchase a day pass for $5 (subject to change) when you board the 992 bus at the airport from any Terminal. Get off at Broadway & Kettner Blvd. and walk to the Santa Fe Depot. From there, take the Green Line with signage 'Fashion Valley Transit Center' and then walk about 5 minutes to the Town and Country San Diego. Use the MTS Trip Planner.
