When WestJet flies to this destination:
Situated on the southwest coast of the golden state of California, San Diego is a beautiful, sunny and friendly destination just 32 km north of the border town of Tijuana, Mexico. And with everything from sandy beaches and desert, to lush valleys and breathtaking mountain ranges, this city has all the makings of a fabulous vacation.
Aside from its world renowned harbour and fantastic water sports options, San Diego is probably best known for its golf courses. Golf is one of the most popular pastimes here and there are more than 90 golf courses in San Diego County to choose from. The most famous, Torrey Pines Golf Course, is where the PGA Tour plays the Farmers Insurance Open (formerly the Buick Invitational).
There are also plenty of family-friendly attractions in San Diego, including major draws such as SeaWorld San Diego, Legoland California, the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park. For three days each July, San Diego also hosts Comic-Con International – the world’s largest comic book and popular arts convention.
For couples, San Diego is also a romantic getaway, perfect for honeymooners or those just simply looking for a vacation in the sun. From its sun-kissed beaches to the beautiful boardwalks of Pacific Beach, you're sure to find plenty of spots to share an intimate walk – or perhaps even a bike ride.
Rent cruiser bikes or rollerblades from beachside kiosks and glide for hours along San Diego's peaceful shores. The boardwalk is best during weekdays if you want to avoid the crowds. When you want to take a break from cycling, toss a Frisbee on the beach or dip your toes into the warm ocean water.
Fans of Dr. Seuss books will appreciate how San Diego inspired the author and cartoonist's artwork. After the Second World War, Theodore Seuss Geisel and his wife moved to the quirky, gorgeous neighbourhood of La Jolla on the northwest tip of San Diego. It was here that he wrote and illustrated books such as The Cat in the Hat and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Look at Seuss’s drawings and you'll notice the same fanciful landscapes of strangely twisted trees with shaggy tops found right here in La Jolla.
But whether you come to San Diego to laze around during its sun-warmed winters or to sip white wine on summer patios next to the beach, you'll never be far from the sounds, sights and smells that make this city so unique.
