San Diego is only US city to be named a “World Smart City” by National Geographic Channel. And, the San Diego/Tijuana region was just recognized by National Geographic Traveler Magazine as one of only 20 “Best of the World” destinations for 2016. 

You'll discover historic and world-renowned national parks and attractions like Old Town San Diego, Cabrillo National Monument, SeaWorld San Diego, San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park, LEGOLAND California Resort and the USS Midway Museum, just minutes from downtown.
