Located in the most south-westerly corner of the United States, San Diego is California’s second largest city and strikes the perfect balance between laid-back cool and city sophistication. A layered mix of communities make up the vibrant and eclectic neighbourhoods of San Diego, from the ‘jewel’ of La Jolla to the buzzing bars of the Gaslamp Quarter, to the glimmering Pacific Beach to the hipster hoards at North Park.  

Often referred to as the ‘capital of craft’ San Diego thrives as a centre of innovation, creativity and culture, discovering the newest food trends first and experimenting with flavours. Only 30 minutes from the Mexican border, this two nation destination Hispanic influence is evident across the city.  

San Diego boasts world famous family attractions, including the San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld, and also a mecca for sports enthusiasts looking for an alternative way to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Sports include paragliding, kayaking, hiking and surfing with 70 miles of coastline to enjoy.  

San Diego is a destination for everyone with exciting activity and enviable climate all year round to entice all ages from family travellers, adventure couples and food fanatics to thrill seekers, culture vultures and more.
