La Jolla
North along I-5

World famous as one of the most privileged enclaves in the world, it's not hard to understand why after walking the seven miles of jagged coastline, viewing the art in its contemporary art museum or catching a show at the local playhouse, a favorite for Broadway tryouts.  

Tijuana
South of the border

This vibrant city of 1.5 million lies just south of San Diego. Is it safe? The 300,000 people who cross the border every day think so. Yes, there are those infamous nightclubs and the red light district and the pharmacies, but there's a lot more to the city that gave the world the Caesar salad, including fine restaurants, markets and museums. The easiest way to avoid the inevitably jammed-up border traffic is via the fast and convenient (but also crowded) trolley.
