San Diego Travel Information

San Diego Convention Center and Harbor

Welcome to San Diego, California’s second largest city. From the time you arrive at the airport, it’s only a five-minute ride to the San Diego Convention Center.  The beautiful convention center sits right on sparkling San Diego bay and across the street from exciting downtown.  Everything you need is within walking distance. (And with an average temperature of 72 degrees, walking is the way to go!)  Stay in one of the beautiful first-class hotels. Explore the dining and the urban excitement of the Gaslamp Quarter.  Stroll along the waterfront. Enjoy eclectic shopping.  It’s all within steps of the Convention Center.

The San Diego International Airport is only three miles away from downtown and the San Diego Convention Center.  Shake the jet lag off across the street from the Convention Center in the exciting Gaslamp Quarter, the city’s premier dining and entertainment area.  From suave steakhouses and eclectic ethnic fare, dinner clubs to sultry jazz bars, over 100 restaurants intermingled with dance and drink are all situated within blocks of each other. The best part: all this is within walking distance of both the Convention Center and the city’s best hotels.
