Section in San Diego, California
Do & See
In comparison to sprawling LA, San Diego has the feel of a compact city, and it is tempting to stay downtown. A lot of people do, however, think of San Diego in terms of the whole county, which leaves a lot more to explore. The regional terrain is extraordinary in itself and varies from the Pacific coastline in the west to the Sonoran Desert in the east. Those who travel to the northeast will also come across its snow-capped mountains, while travellers who go south will find themselves at the Mexican border in just 15 minutes. This variety makes the city a favourite for outdoor activities such as hiking, surfing, biking and sailing. Additionally, the long list of family-friendly attractions (LEGOLAND, the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, the New Children's Museum) make it a city that offers abundant entertainment for everyone.
