There's never been a more exciting time to visit San Diego, a sparkling waterfront city that pulses with a new urban sophistication. Its downtown area
has evolved into an exciting urban center with new hotels, major shopping complexes (Horton Plaza and the Paladion), and
continuing renewal in the historic Gaslamp Quarter. The harbor bustles with restaurants, shops, and
Year-round sunshine, 70 miles of beaches, and unlimited outdoor activities appeal to singles, couples and families. The dazzling array of attractions such as Balboa Park, Sea World, Seaport Village, the world-famous San Diego Zoo and San Diego Wild Animal Park, unique shopping, the lure of nearby Mexico, spectator and participant sports all combine to ensure a successful and memorable conference.
SITE 2000 will be held at the San Diego Marriott-Mission Valley. Mission Valley, Old Town and Point Loma San Diego's Historic Region, are located minutes from downtown.
