What To See In San Diego

There are several centers promoting cultural tourism in San Diego. The city’s rich Hispanic past blends well with its well-endowed climate and topography.

This makes San Diego as a neat travel destination endowed with a lot of ‘must see’ places and events. Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Gaslamp Quarter, the beaches in the Pacific coast and the canyons and deserts along the way to Arizona and Mexico are attractions that San Diego takes pride of.

One of the recommended icons of cultural tourism in San Diego is the Worldbeat Cultural Center, an institution run by a non-profit organization working on multi-cultural arts. It focuses on African and indigenous cultures, specifically indigenous music, dances, art, technology and education. It is located in the famous Balboa Park, right at the heart of the San Diego central.

Also recommended to those planning to take a tour vacations in San Diego, the San Diego Archeological Center is another good place to see. This center is tasked to preserve archaeological collections, to promote the educational, scientific and cultural use of these priceless artifacts.The hidden wineries along Interstate 15 is also a ‘must see’ for San Diego visitors. Free wine tasting and souvenir shopping are offered daily by family-owned enterprises. You can be sure that what you are buying in shops are fine masterpieces of old San Diego County craftsmen.

Sea World and San Diego Zoo are two recommended attractions in San Diego fit for nature lovers, environmentalists and students out on a field trip. Chula Vista Nature Center is also an attraction of this sort. Dolphins and sharks are the main attraction at SeaWorld. San Diego zoo has a collection of rare Koalas and Pandas as its crowd drawers.

Those who want outdoor shopping may try the old Seaport Village. There are plenty of good malls around the city as well as urbanizing districts around the San Diego County. The latest mall that opened only last October 27, 2006 is the modern Otay Ranch Town Center in Chula Vista district. This modern mall is a nice contrast to the ancient ambience of Chula Vista.

Of course Balboa Park and the Gaslamp Quarter should not to be missed by a San Diego visitor. You haven’t gone to San Diego if you failed to drop by these premier business and leisure hubs. Balboa Park has a nice golf course that caters to CEOs who love closing deals while whacking a golf ball. Others simply prefer the ambience of fine dining at the restaurants in Gaslamp Quarter to close those great deals.
