America's Finest City! San Diego was named by the Spanish, who sailed into the bay as early as 1542. San Diego is known for gorgeous beaches and with 70 miles of coastline, year-around sunshine and mild temperatures, you can enjoy the surf and sand almost any day of the year. Sandy beaches, rocky cliffs, reefs and tide pools, provide a variety of beaches perfect for families and dogs.
The city has developed into a bustling commercial center with a downtown packed with tall modern skyscrapers. The views of the San Diego Bay from the city are beautiful. Harbor Cruises are another great way to see San Diego. While downtown, visit the Gaslamp District, Sea Port Village, the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum and the Embarcadaro.
