Bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Anza-Borrego Desert and the Laguna Mountains to the east, and Mexico to the south, the diverse neighborhoods of San Diego are spread out over 4,200 square miles, offering endless opportunities for exploration and activities. Spend a day relaxing in one of the many beach communities, then hiking in the east San Diego County mountains the next.

Explore the urban neighborhoods of San Diego’s downtown, from the iconic Gaslamp District to the eclectic community of Hillcrest. Visit the quaint and charming island town of Coronado or the picturesque village of La Jolla. San Diego’s regions are so unique and diverse; there are plenty of options to discover something new each time you visit.

We encourage you to visit the San Diego Convention & Visitor's Bureau website to learn more about San Diego’s unique and vibrant regions and the many attractions and activities available.
