San Diego

San Diego has it all! Steeped in history, California’s 2nd largest city offers picture perfect weather, glistening harbors, sandy beaches, PGA Tour-quality golf courses, and premier hotel properties making San Diego a multi-faceted destination for incentive travel programs, corporate meetings, or conventions.

Beginning with San Diego’s Downtown/Waterfront area, the city offers a variety of activities and entertainment options to keep your guests busy as well as multiple Convention hotels near or adjacent to the bayfront San Diego Convention Center. When you add to the mix several new designer boutique hotel properties; international cuisine and nightlife in the Gaslamp Quarter; phenomenal shopping; sailboats and motor yachts galore; Petco Park and the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum, you might be tempted to say that downtown has it all – but there’s more! Uptown we find upscale restaurants, the world-famous San Diego Zoo and the cultural heart of the city, Balboa Park, an urban oasis, featuring over one dozen museums.

South of the city is magical Coronado, home to the Hotel Del Coronado, a living legend steeped in history. Water activities abound here as do shopping opportunities and waterfront restaurants perfect for any dine-around.

Adjacent to downtown is Little Italy, with wonderful Italian eateries, delightful art galleries, markets, and specialty boutiques. Further north is La Jolla, well known for its world-class restaurants and Torrey Pines Golf Course. This seaside enclave, perfect for hiking, biking and kayaking or for browsing through the many upscale boutiques and galleries, is centrally located between San Diego proper and North County San Diego. The Birch Aquarium at Scripps is a fun and educational day excursion by day and special event venue by night.

We invite you to join the thousands of meeting professionals who have successfully taken advantage of our destination management services. Call us today! The team at ACCESS San Diego looks forward to creating a customized and dynamic program of special events for your next program!
