In the doldrums of winter or even in the stiff humidity of summer it is natural to look for respite in the well known brochure like landscapes that the travel brochures will tempt you with. However, San Diego is often overlooked simply because its neighbor to the north, Los Angeles, boasts movie stars and Disney characters. That should be the reason why you visit the seaside city that is just as impressive as Los Angeles without all of the entanglements.
San Diego is a destination that often gets overlooked in Southern California being in the shadow of Los Angeles, Hollywood and the Disney Resorts but visitors looking for sunshine, multiple beach options and plenty of things to do while on vacation will be very pleased when they arrive. This city on the Mexican border offers culture, entertainments and natural beauty in such a wide variety of options that it is among the hidden treasures of the West.
When deciding on a visit to the Western United States you might be tempted to visit Los Angles or San Francisco until you take a long hard look at what San Diego has to offer. While the world-class dining options might not compare to the cities to the north there is plenty of quality eating in San Diego County. When it comes to attractions people talk about the San Diego Zoo and Sea World but the natural attractions are not only more impressive but they are also free. If you need museums and culture, San Diego has those as well.
