SAN DIEGO

Less than a two hour drive south of Los Angeles and just north of the border to Mexico, San Diego is popular for its great weather, great beaches (especially among surfers) and charming downtown district. The city's most frequented spots include Balboa Park, Torrey Pines State Reserve, Ocean Beach, and Sunset Cliffs. San Diego is also the home of the University of California, San Diego and the famous Geisel Library.
