Destination: San Diego

With arguably the best climate in the world, California's second largest city, San Diego, has 70 miles of beaches, a world famous zoo, Sea World and lots of great golf courses. It's home to the U.S. Navy's Pacific fleet, beautiful marinas and dozens of museums and theaters as well.

Temperatures generally top out in the 70s with low humidity year-round, so San Diego is ripe for any type of outdoor activity, such as hiking, biking and golf. There's also the renowned Gaslamp District, where you will find scores of world-class restaurants, shops and cultural activities.

The San Diego area boasts more than 90 golf courses, from seaside settings to desert mountains to inland valleys. San Diego is best known for a pair of great municipal courses at Torrey Pines, located in La Jolla just north of the city, perched on the bluffs of Torrey Pines State Park above the Pacific. Host of the PGA Tour's Farmers Insurance Open, the South Course at Torrey Pines was also the site of Tiger Woods' 2008 U.S. Open playoff victory over Rocco Mediate.

San Diego is also a natural destination for resorts, whether they're in the desert or on the coast. Just 30 minutes outside the city is the Barona Resort & Casino in Lakeside. There are also several resorts on the ocean, including the famous La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, where many of the major golf equipment manufacturers are also headquartered.

San Diego International Airport is located three miles northwest of downtown, providing one of more scenic landings and takeoffs of any destination. Served by most every notable U.S. airline, visitors should have no trouble booking direct flights into the airport, which also has a full slate of rental car companies accessible by shuttle. By car, you can visit San Diego via Interstate 10 from the east and I-15 and I-805 (the inland freeway) from the north. You can also access the city on Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner from Los Angeles and other destinations to the north.
