Arriving via San Diego International Airport? Locate your luggage, head 2 miles northeast of the terminal and you'll reach Hillcrest. Then it's only 2 miles to the heart of the city.

You don't have to travel far to discover a few excellent attractions. Begin your adventure with visits to San Diego State University Art Gallery and San Diego State University. Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala and Balboa Park Golf Course are also highly favored by visitors and locals. Neighboring communities, like Middletown and Park West, are worth your time.

San Diego Zoo has to be one of the country's most iconic tourist sights, and it's just 1 mile away.

Be sure to spend time at San Diego Coronado Bridge and Maritime Museum of San Diego while you are exploring the central area. You can also check out USS Midway Museum and Coronado Beach.

Head to a few cultural sites to get a feel for the heart and soul of the area. Centro Cultural de la Raza, Spanish Village Art Center and NTC Promenade are not to be missed.

You're certain to run into many art lovers at Museum of Photographic Sciences, Timken Museum of Art, San Diego Museum of Art and Mingei International Museum.

Escape the rain at San Diego Natural History Museum, Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, San Diego Model Railroad Museum and San Diego Museum of Art. Check for guided tours or wander the halls and rooms at your own pace.

Secure seats for a show at one of the much-loved venues. Starlight Bowl, Spreckels Organ Pavilion, Old Globe Theater and Copley Symphony Hall are recommended.

In need of a game of golf? You'll have to make some long drives and difficult putts to get under par at Riverwalk Golf Club and Tecolote Canyon Golf Course.

Children have inquisitive natures. Encourage them at Balboa Park Carousel, New Children's Museum and Seaworld.

Balboa Park, Japanese Friendship Garden, Old Town San Diego State Park and Alcazar Garden are excellent places to slow things down and make the most of a warm day.

Local parklands include Chicano Park, Desert Garden, Centennial Park and Spreckels Park. Take a stroll or read a book in the shade.

If you're interested in religious sites, you shouldn't miss Rock Church and Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church.

Stomp and yell while you watch the San Diego Padres in their home stadium, Petco Park. Inquire about a tour of the stadium and you'll be able to get a behind-the-scenes look at the off-limits areas.
