Cheap flights from Atlanta to San Diego

Conveniently located between Los Angeles and the Mexican border, you can experience the best of both worlds in San Diego. The area features some of the most spectacular beaches the Eastern Pacific Ocean has to offer, like Mission Beach, not to mention beautiful weather year round.

When flying from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), one of the world's busiest airports, your best bet for shorter flight time and ease of convenience, is to fly directly into San Diego International Airport (SAN).

Key Facts

When arriving at SAN, car rental reservations are available by baggage claim. Renting a car is recommended unless you are planning to stay exclusively downtown. Trolley service also provides transportation to popular attractions.

Balboa Park, known for the beauty of its landscaping and exquisite architecture, should be at the top of your list of places to go. Balboa Park also features top attractions such as the San Diego Zoo. In the springtime, Carlsbad Flower Field blooms with 50 acres of colorful flowers that is sure to take your breath away with its spectacular display.

Take a stroll down the historical Gaslamp Quarter, and you'll see why it's considered San Diego's premier shopping and entertainment destination. At LEGOLAND, the young and old alike stand in marvel at the amazing statue creations.

Hints and Tips

Travel time between ATL and SAN is generally four and a half hours. Mexico is only 15 minutes away from downtown San Diego, however, before venturing to certain Mexican cities such as Tijuana, it is best to check for travel advisories and proper documentation.
