A short drive north is La Jolla Cove, where millions of tourists visit per year to snap a photo with the sea lions. Nature enthusiasts enjoy hiking at the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, characterized by its diverse landscape of pine forests and sandstone canyons. 

San Diego is the eighth-largest city in the United States and is composed of 13 different neighborhoods, leaving no shortage of activities and attractions.
