Visitors coming to San Diego from Philadelphia will have a warm welcome, when they arrive at this peaceful town on the Pacific Ocean. San Diego is a big city with a small town feel that invites both those on corporate business and those on vacation, with open arms.
Removed from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, visitors to San Diego enjoy spending time relaxing by the beaches like Ocean Beach, exploring the coast by boat and surfing. San Diego also boasts a number of famous attractions, including the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Universal Studios and LEGOLAND.
Though the airport is close to downtown San Diego, the metropolitan area is sprawling, and cars are certainly the most efficient way to get around. Interstates 8 and 5 serve greater San Diego, and I-8 West ends in the laid-back beach community of Ocean Beach, home of San Diego's famous dog-friendly beach. Downtown's Balboa Park is located just off of I-5.
A nonstop flight between the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and San Diego lasts about five and a half hours. When you arrive at the San Diego International Airport (SAN), you will be only a short, three mile drive from downtown. To get to the rental company counters at SAN, hop on the airport's convenient rental car shuttle.
