One of the most famous attractions is Balboa Park where Spanish Colonial Revival architecture abounds. Take advantage of the daily free tours. Boasting museums and impressive gardens, the park is an attraction not to be overlooked. While you are in the neighborhood, don’t forget to visit the acclaimed San Diego Zoo, one of the most enchanting animal parks in the nation.

No visit to San Diego would be complete without a visit to the famous beaches. Walk or skateboard along Mission and Pacific Beach where San Diego motels offer weekly rates. Bike the variety of trails along Mission Bay Park where 20 miles of magnificent paths offer breathtaking shoreline views.

There are numerous economical San Diego motels on the beach at nearby La Jolla Cove. There guests will find magnificent sunset views and some of the most transparent waters along the coast.

Picnics take on special significance at Torrey Pines State Beach where hang gliders perform feats along the cliffs of the coastline; and bird watchers enjoy the protected habitat of a wide species of birds at the State beach.

The beach, however, isn’t the only thing attracting visitors to this sunny city. In historical Old Town visitors enjoy the Stewart House and Seeley Stables for a glimpse into the city’s past. Or take a look at California’s future as the convention center is centrally located downtown and only three miles from the San Diego airport. Explore quaint Seaport Village downtown. Stroll downtown’s Gaslamp Quarter where restored Victorian architecture and shopping opportunities along with economical motels in San Diego abound. When booking your San Diego motel with Expedia, you know you’re getting the best deal on your Southern California vacation.
