Travel Information

A (Warm) San Diego Welcome 

Welcome to California’s second largest city, boasting over 70 miles of majestic coastlines and gentle climate. Home to beach communities, mountains, and urban neighborhoods, San Diego’s diverse communities make it the ideal place for every kind of traveler. 

Location, Location, Location 

The San Diego International Airport offers nearly 500 daily flights providing nonstop and connecting services to major domestic destinations and across the globe. Located just a few miles away from the heart of San Diego, getting from point A to point B couldn’t be easier, or more scenic. The public transit system is a breeze, offering trolleys, buses and the occasional pedaler to get you where you need to go. 

The Convention Center 

Located just off I-5 and right on the water’s edge, the San Diego Convention Center is in the heart of the action. The bayside facility is just a short walk away from award-winning dining venues, shopping and nightlife in the historic Gaslamp Quarter.  Surrounded by waterfront parks, the USS Midway, and PETCO Park (home of the San Diego Padres) there is never a dull moment. And don’t worry; of course there is free Wi-Fi!

San Diego is Full of Surprises

Vibrant art and culture is shown through lively performances, thought-provoking exhibitions, and engaging historic sites and monuments. Home to 15 museums and nine art districts, San Diego has something to offer for everyone – no matter what your taste. The city is heavily influenced by American and Mexican cultures due to its geographic position and offers an array of special events, varied cuisine, and a reputation as one of America’s premier centers of craft brewing!
