San Diego is one of the most beautiful cities on Earth, a place where each sightseeing expedition leads you to sights more beautiful than the last. We live, love, and play here, and yet we never get used to the breathtaking wonder that is such a huge part of our ocean village. And although it seems to be unfair to try and pick out the sights that are better than others, we have compiled this San Diego sightseeing list of the five most incredible places to see in San Diego to help make your vacation experience better than you ever dreamed it could be.
Broken Hill in Torrey Pines State Reserve
The views from Broken Hill will take your breath away, and the unusual landscape will intrigue and amaze. This epic landscape is one of the last places on Earth where the Torrey pine still grows. Wear comfortable shoes and bring plenty of water when hiking up the exquisite Broken Hill.
Centennial Park Coronado
The skyline of San Diego is visible from Centennial Park, and the sheer beauty will have you taking picture after picture, always trying, but often failing, to get the RIGHT shot. In the daytime, the sun shining off the water illuminates the buildings behind, and at night, the colorful lights will make you think it’s Christmas in July!
Places to See in San Diego: Star of India at the San Diego Maritime Museum
This Iron Wind Jammer ship is a beautiful example of mid-19th century craftsmanship. The Star of India has sailed around the world 21 times and still sails the ocean today, creating a beautiful picture when sails are unfurled and at night. When she rests, she glows against the night sky.
Home to over a dozen museums and over 15 lushly landscaped gardens, you could spend your entire vacation San Diego sightseeing inside this 1200 acres of this lushly manicured park and never need to leave. Every corner you turn reveals a new marvel: a Japanese friendship garden, the Balboa Park Carousel, and even the world-famous San Diego Zoo!
