Cheap flights from Minneapolis to San Diego

Passengers flying into San Diego International Airport (SAN) for the first time may not expect to land right in the heart of downtown San Diego. Once you touch down, it is easy to explore the city. From the shops and restaurants like The Oceanaire Seafood Room found in the Gas Lamp District, to the beaches of La Jolla; whether here for business or leisure you'll find plenty of activities to fill your day.

Pacific Beach and Mission Beach both give visitors a glimpse into the city's surf culture. San Diego is also home to a world-famous zoo as well as a SeaWorld. Sports fans can watch a baseball game at Petco Field, a football game at Qualcomm Stadium, or can play a round of golf at the iconic Pebble Beach.

Key Facts

Getting around San Diego by rental car is straightforward due to freeways I-5 and I-15 running through the city. Visitors can also access lovely Coronado Island via the scenic Coronado Bridge. Travelers looking to explore the area can head north along California's Pacific Coast Highway for amazing views of the coast and the Pacific Ocean along the way.

Hints and Tips
