Most trips to San Diego aren’t complete without a trip to the city’s most famous tourist attractions, including Legoland, SeaWorld or the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park. However, with world-class beaches, a thriving cultural scene and surrounding natural beauty, there’s much more to be seen in this city by the ocean.

Whether you’re heading to the coast to catch some waves or some rays, San Diego has the perfect beach for you. Mission Beach and Pacific Beach are two of the most popular in the area, attracting large crowds in prime beach weather. Other popular sandy spots include Imperial, Coronado, Ocean and La Jolla beaches.

Balboa Park, the nation’s largest urban cultural park, spans 1,200 acres and includes 15 museums, performing arts venues and beautiful gardens. Learn about the city’s Spanish heritage and pick up hand-crafted souvenirs in Old Town. While exploring the downtown area, board the Star of India, the world’s oldest active ship, at the Maritime Museum of San Diego. After a long day of sightseeing, head to downtown’s up-and-coming Gaslamp Quarter for dinner and cocktails
