Hot and Chill

A city where the sun shines every day, with miles of coast, a world-renowned zoo, and some of the best Mexican food north of Mexico, San Diego has something to offer everyone. Whether it’s the surfer styles of Ocean Beach, the cocktail bars in Mission Hills, a great meal in Little Italy's Top Chef Alley, or the rich cultural offerings at Balboa Park, you can find the SoCal you're looking for. Take a drive along the coast, nosh on a fish taco, or kick back with a local craft beer. The only requirements are a pair of sunglasses and an open mind.
