Copie d'ouverture pour la France

San Diego est connue comme la ville des plages de la Californie et représente une expérience authentique de la Californie du Sud (SoCal).  Au-delà de la plage, le quartier Gaslamp de San Diego couvre 16 blocs à distance de marche remplis de restaurants, de vie nocturne et de divertissement. San Diego est également connue comme la capitale de la bière artisanale, avec plus de 120 brasseries artisanales ainsi que plus de 100 caves  de vinification dynamiques à visiter.

Connue comme le « berceau » de la Californie, San Diego propose une panoplie de sites historiques à découvrir, dont la vieille ville de San Diego, le monument national Cabrillo et la Mission del Alcala, la première des missions de la Californie. Balboa Park, le plus grand parc culturel urbain en Amérique, offre 17 grands musées ainsi que des arts du spectacle, de magnifiques jardins et le Zoo de San Diego de renommée mondiale.  D'autres attractions de San Diego comprennent SeaWorld San Diego, USS Midway, LEGOLAND California et le San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

Hors des sentiers battus, vous trouverez des quartiers locaux à explorer dans un environnement sûr et familial, chacun avec sa propre ambiance et culture. Et pour les plus aventureux, vous trouverez à l'est l'Anza Borrego Desert State Park, dont la caractéristique se compose de 800 kilomètres d'étendues sauvages. Située sur la frontière de Baja California, Mexique, San Diego est également l'endroit idéal pour passer des vacances dans deux pays, le Mexique se trouvant à 30 kilomètres au sud du centre-ville.
