The most difficult decision to make when planning a vacation to San Diego is determining what things to do and see among the region's vast and diverse variety of attractions; from the theater to wild animals. Choosing between the fabulous accommodations, condo rentals and vacation rentals will not be easy. You are spoiled for choice in San Diego!

California's second largest city is approximately two and a half hours south of Los Angeles. San Diego County is nestled between Mexico to the south, wine country to the north, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park to the east, and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

San Diego's many neighborhoods offer diverse adventures and accommodation: from the tiny boutiques in La Jolla to the culinary delights in the northern suburb of Del Mar; from the authentic European charm of Little Italy to the nouveau-chic of the Downtown Gaslamp Quarter, each community adds flavor and flair to San Diego's personality. It also boasts vacation rentals country club style and even condo rentals with spectacular views.

Nature abounds throughout the city: Bougainvilleas cover hillsides in La Jolla, spreading magenta blankets. Your next vacation rental could be in the dynamic Downtown, a vision in purple when the jacaranda trees that line the streets bloom in spring, spreading vivid, shady canopies. Accommodation with green views is the perfect place to unwind after a day out.

One of the city's many highlights is the 1,200-acre Balboa Park, the country's largest urban cultural park, home to 15 museums, the Globe Theater, and the World famous San Diego Zoo. Among other activities with the family, a visit to Wild Animal Park, SeaWorld San Diego and LEGOLAND California is a must!

Every year from early March to early May, The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch blossom into a spectacular sea of brightly colored flowers. Open to the public seven days a week, 9am to 6pm. Guided tours and accommodations in the area must be arranged in advance.

San Diego is the ideal place for retail therapy too. Enjoy the warm sunshine while you hit up the shops at one of the many outdoor shopping centers located around the county, or stay cool in the shade as you browse through exclusive stores. San Diego has it all - from luxury boutiques to bargain antiques. This city makes it easy to find your heart's content.

Lodging in San Diego can be found close to main attractions, condo rental in the city centre could place you in the heart of the action or a vacation rental on the beach with the family could be what you need. There is no shortage of amazing accommodation.
