Natural beauty, exciting theme parks, and special surprises await you in the nation's seventh-largest city. San Diego lies in the southwestern corner of the country, on the United States-Mexico border. This beautiful city, sometimes called The Birthplace of California, was founded in 1769, when Spanish soldiers built California's first presidio (military fort) on the site. The settlement was named for San Diego de Alcala, a Spanish saint.

San Diego was voted the only area in the United States with perfect weather by Holiday Magazine. The average annual temperature is 70 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius), and the typical day is sunny and mild with low humidity.

While San Diego is best known for its near-perfect climate, miles of sandy beaches, and fun-filled waterfront activities, you'll also discover a city with a character and ambiance rich in the arts and culture. Balboa Park, the largest urban cultural park, located in the very heart of San Diego, is home to over 15 exciting museums and galleries, including:

* Reuben H. Fleet Science Center--Ranked as one of the largest planetariums in the world, it opened in 1973 as the world's first OMNIMAX Theater. Experience the 76-ft. dome screen with you-are-there sensation, the Sci-tours motion simulation attraction, and more than 60 hands-on science exhibits.

* Mingei International Museum--Six galleries of dynamic exhibitions feature timeless art from all cultures of the world--traditional and contemporary folk art, craft, and design.

* San Diego Museum of Art--Includes collections of Italian Renaissance, Dutch and Spanish Baroque Old Masters, as well as American, Modern, and Asian art treasures.

* Children's Museum/Museo de los Ninos--Offers art-based exhibitions and programs for all ages.

San Diego is home to one of the finest natural deep-water harbors in the world. The harbor, on San Diego Bay, serves ocean-going ships, tuna fleets, and United States Navy vessels, and plays an important part in downtown San Diego's make-up and charm. A vibrant, eclectic mix of neighborhoods, restaurants, businesses, shops, and attractions surround the harbor, including the historic Gaslamp Quarter, a district lit up with neon signs and the kinetic energy of people strolling Fifth Avenue in search of the ideal place to listen to jazz, rock, or blues. …
