Flights To San Diego

Welcome to America’s Air-Conditioned City! No, it doesn’t have that name due to all the AC units that inhabit it; San Diego is known for its pleasant, breezy outdoors. The year-long mild weather gives locals a laid-back attitude as they surf, hike or bike their way around the city. And with a thriving nightlife, indie music scene and craft brewery smorgasbord, what’s not to love? Pack your sunglasses and your monogrammed tasting mug, because you’re flying to San Diego.

Getting Around San Diego

San Diego International Airport (SAN) is located right in the heart of downtown, so you can spot cool skyscrapers and get ocean views as flights to San Diego land. You can also get a quick taxi or pick up the trolley or bus right at the airport for a short ride to all the action. Parking in the city isn’t too bad either, so check out Wotif’s car hire options to give yourself the freedom to explore the rest of this sprawled-out city.

When You Land…

If your San Diego flights touch down in the morning, Mission Bay Waterpark is where you’ll want to be. Rent a jet ski, boat or stand-up paddleboard and explore all day!

If you land in the afternoon, check out the museums, Spanish Revival architecture and buskers at Balboa Park.

After an evening flight, check out 5th and 6th Avenues, the main drags in downtown, for great eats and tons of nightlife. From fondue to beers bought on the stock market to a rodeo-themed nightclub, this city has it all. Live it up, then head back to Wotif’s San Diego hotels to recharge for the night.

Live Like a Local

What are San Diego packages without a trip to the San Diego Zoo, Safari Park or Sea World? They’ve got more wild animals than you can point a camera at. Want something a little more out of the way? Head east to hike, bike and rock climb your way through mountains, valleys and deserts.
