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 is eager to welcome travelers back to this beautiful region. Learn more about the Safe Traveler Pledge.
