Get Your Guide to San Diego

San Diego is home to world-class attractions, foodie delights and unique activities. Let us help you find your way around during your next visit to our region, whether it be for a convention, an annual meeting or just a low-key getaway.

The San Diego Convention Center's 2018-2019 Attendee Guide is now available online and in print. It’s the perfect resource for attendees, meeting planners, and anyone interested in exploring San Diego. The cover features our newest amenity: our Sails Pavilion LED lights!

This guide will help you from the moment you land at the San Diego International Airport, to finding your way around our Convention Center, the surrounding Gaslamp Quarter, famous attractions like the world famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park and the USS Midway Museum. Whether it's your first visit, an annual trip or it's been a while since you've stayed with us, we've got you covered!

In this year’s 96-page edition, you’ll find information about how to:

  • Create your very own brewery-hopping experience
  • Finding the perfect stretch of sand and surf for a personal beach day
  • Explore Arts and culture that make up San Diego’s rich history
  • Choose from an eclectic selection of indulgent meals, casual eats and memorable dining
  • Experience San Diego by flying high above it all

Walk outside our venue and you are right in the heart of our Gaslamp District. But San Diego is also home to diverse neighborhoods that are just a trolley or rideshare ride away. From the vibrant culture of Old Town, to the beauty of our arts and culture treasure Balboa Park, San Diego has something to offer for everyone.

Our guide is also helpful for families that have come along for a vacation. We have a 3-day itinerary created that's perfect for a long weekend of fun.
