It seems in San Diego it's always fair weather...

Winter or summer, the cool Pacific waters mingle with deep southern California warmth to make a climate that boasts soft breezes to welcome you to one of the Golden State's most visitor and family-friendly destinations.

Besides the award-winning Coronado beach, San Diego offers up colorful history in Old Town and Seaport Village, lively entertainment in the Gaslamp Quarter, together with great shopping and restaurants

See it all with a trip aboard the Vintage Trolley, often called the city's "moving landmark" for a colorful ride around town with stops at all top San Diego tourist sites.

Especially for the kids, the miles of sunny beachfront and one of America's greatest zoos, the San Diego Zoo (including a day trip to their wild animal park) make for one exciting vacation destination.

And, for the whole family more exotic fun is in store with a day trip to nearby Tijuana, Mexico!

Welcome to San Diego!
