This southernmost California city enjoys warm, sunny weather year ‘round.
Established by Spaniards in 1769, San Diego is one of the most-visited cities in the United States. It's family-friendly and full of leisure activities that make the most of the glorious weather and its spot along the California coast.
Exploring the Southern California’s Coastal Waters
Southern California is known for its palm trees and beaches. There is no real “winter” here, so visitors can enjoy the lovely beaches all year ‘round. With a tour guide from an ocean sports company called Everyday California, visitors can go kayaking in La Jolla Cove in the beautiful oceanfront community of La Jolla. The floor of the cove is covered with rocks, kelp beds and canyons that attract marine life, which is why this spot is very popular among divers and snorkelers. Above the cove is the village of La Jolla and the many beautiful homes that dot the hillside.
Shopping in San Diego
Since the weather in San Diego is great most of the time, outdoor shopping is popular. Seaport Village, conveniently located near downtown along San Diego Bay, is a great place to walk along the waterfront overlooking the ships, boats and yachts among fun shops and restaurants.
Across the street is the beautiful Spanish-inspired architecture of The Headquarters at Seaport District. It’s hard to believe this was once a police station – now it’s surrounded by independent boutiques and restaurants.
