California dreaming

“America’s Finest City” is San Diego’s official slogan. Though undeniably bold, this claim is echoed by a myriad of visitors to the city. San Diego’s extraordinary force of attraction is most likely due to its unique blend of beach holiday and city trip rolled up in one and with more than 300 sunny days a year, tourists don’t have to worry about bad weather.

The sea and the beach right on your doorstep; that's probably what many people find so fascinating about San Diego. If you want to get a little closer to the water, make yourself comfortable at one of the beautiful beaches. And what about some action for a change? Then head to Mission Beach with its amusement park Belmont Park. It is located directly on the waterfront and offers plenty of variety. Water sports enthusiasts are well served at La Jolla Shores: surfing, kayaking or even snorkelling with leopard sharks is no problem here.
