You are currently viewing Top 10 Pics That Will Make You Want To Go To San Diego

Since there are currently very interesting deals on flights to San Diego, and SD is always in the shadow of its more popular siblings San Francisco and Los Angeles, we decided to compile the Top 10 pictures of the gorgeous Southern California city.

San Diego is one of the sunniest cities in North America. That alone is reason enough to head to America’s Finest City as it likes to be called. Furthermore, SD has such a different vibe than other Californian cities. So take advantage of the low prices and go see the following sights.

I stumbled upon this great collection of photos by an artist named Frankie, on his site Frankie Foto where you can see even more stunning shots.


So here’s the Top 10. Tell us in the comments which one you prefer!

1. Piers

10. Rail Along the Ocean

Bonus: The Dunes

Again with the ocean view, I know. You’re starting to see my preferences. But honestly, isn’t this so much more beautiful than a standard beach? Photo Credit: Frankie Foto


Bottom Line

San Diego has no reason to envy its more popular Northern neighbours. The beauty of SD is that on a trip there you can also plan a roadtrip to LA or walk across the world’s busiest border crossing and arrive directly into the city of Tijuana, Mexico.
