About San Diego

With legendary weather, beautiful beaches and a friendly, laid-back vibe, San Diego is a destination that is sure to delight. In California’s second-largest city, blue skies keep watch over miles of majestic coastline, and the gentle Mediterranean climate creates a welcoming environment.

Bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Anza-Borrego Desert and the Laguna Mountains to the east, and Mexico to the south, the diverse neighborhoods of San Diego are spread out over 4,200 square miles, offering endless opportunities for exploration and activities.

Located only minutes from the airport, San Diego’s thriving downtown contains abundant restaurants, shops and cultural attractions. Best of all, many are within an easy walk from the Manchester Grand Hyatt, site of the 2013 GHSA Annual Meeting.

Take a stroll along the nearby Embarcadero, where you can climb aboard the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum or hop on a sailing excursion. Catch the trolley for a quick ride to Balboa Park and the world-famous San Diego Zoo or Old Town San Diego. When the sun goes down, head to the Gaslamp Quarter to check out the San Diego nightlife.

San Diego is famous for its beautiful weather year-round, with an average daily temperature of 70.5° Fahrenheit. Meeting attire is business casual. GHSA recommends packing a light jacket or sweater, as hotel meeting room temperatures can fluctuate. Casual attire is appropriate for all social events.

Food lovers will revel in San Diego’s culinary scene. From five-star French cuisine, to fresh seafood, to casual comfort food and everything in between, San Diego’s chefs are cooking up some of the best fare found anywhere.

We hope you will find time before or after the meetings to soak in some sunshine and find out why San Diego’s nickname is “America’s Finest City.”
