Get beached in San Diego

It’s always a perfect day in San Diego — however you like to vacation. The city is known for its immaculate weather, sparkling coastline, with beaches perfect for surfing, sipping cocktails, and even hang gliding.

When you’re done chowing down on great Mexican food, book a car in San Diego to go check out the bevy of museums in town that offer an array of exciting experiences, equally thrilling to adults and kids.

San Diego favorites

The secret to making the most of San Diego is simply to enjoy the outdoors.

purple lines

Balboa Park

Covering more than 1,200 acres, laced with hiking trails, and home to museums, theaters, restaurants, and the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park is much more than your average city green. Absorb San Diego’s culture and legendary sunshine.

Cabrillo National Monument

There are many ways to do the beach, but nothing beats a day trip to wander the tidepools and meet all the sea creatures. You can find your preferred type of vehicle in San Diego at a low daily rate, then head down to the shore.

USS Midway Museum

In Downtown San Diego, this retired U.S. aircraft carrier gives you a taste of the Top Gun life. Hang out on the flight deck of the USS Midway, explore the aircraft, and test your fortitude in the flight simulator.

Hit the road

Road trip itinerary: catch a meal al fresco at sunset, tackle the mountains, and take a dip in the Pacific. This is one of the most laid-back and comfortable areas of the country, with easy street parking, a sometimes-mils rush hour, nearby road trip destinations galore. Book a car in San Diego, then travel out of town along the stunningly gorgeous coastal roads, and take the rural highways out into the mountains or desert for an entirely different Southern California experience. Avoid the rental car center and take the scenic route with a convertible.

Carlsbad

Grab a tank of gas and take the hour drive north past Torrey Pines in your car to take in the famously beautiful Carlsbad State Beach, explore the lagoons, or go wild at Legoland.

Borrego Springs

Immerse yourself in the tranquility of the desert and discover the unique collection of sculptures tucked into the landscape. Take a road trip out to this touristic location 80 miles south of Palm Springs — the weather is warm any time of year.

Julian

Find your preferred type of vehicle in San Diego, then head an hour out from the city into the mountains to pick your own apples, indulge in a slice of pie, and take a tour of Julian’s 1870s gold mine.
