San Diego is generally a safe place for travelers who observe all normal precautions. Dress inconspicuously (this means removing badges when leaving convention areas) and know the routes to your destination before you set out. At the beach, check with lifeguards about any unsafe conditions such as dangerous riptides or water pollution. The San Diego Tourism Authority offers a print and web version of Visitor Safety Tips, providing sensible precautions for many situations.
