Destination Guide

Destination: San Diego

Nobody does weather better than San Diego, which makes the area a perfect location for many great outdoor activities such as shopping, hiking, surfing, sailing sunbathing and playing golf.

With high temperatures generally in the low 70s for most of the year and very little rainfall, you don't have to take a variety of clothing when you travel to San Diego. Anchored on the southern coast of California just above the Mexican border, the area enjoys a diverse culture as well, with world-class Hispanic and Asian restaurants, arts and crafts, music and sporting events. No trip to San Diego is complete without a trip to Balboa Park and the famous San Diego Zoo. A stint in the Gaslamp Quarter is also a must. San Diego is also home to one-third of the U.S. Navy's Pacific fleet.

The municipal golf scene in San Diego is particularly good, anchored by Torrey Pines, which boasts 36 holes that host the best players in the world. The South Course at Torrey Pines, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, is a U.S. Open site and is open to the public. But while Torrey Pines commands premium green fees for travelers, there are several other municipal facilities that offer bargain rates. One of the best values in the area is the Coronado Golf Course, which sits on the San Diego Harbor.

You'll also find five-star resorts and spas on the coast, golf with casinos and dozens of quality daily fee and semi-private golf courses offering every sort of terrain from hilly to coastal to tree-lined.
