    No surprise here: San Diego, with its beaches, museums, craft beer and never-ending sunshine, was named the No. 1 domestic destination by Money magazine.

    Our city has "the best combination of outdoor attractions, cultural landmarks, great weather and affordable hotels in the country," the magazine said in a statement.

    The magazine, in releasing its Best in Travel Awards, looked at scenery, hotels, restaurants and, of course, affordability. The ranking was compiled after considering 40 sources, including TripAdvisor and Hotels.com.

    San Diego also was voted as having the best zoo.

    So which cities did San Diego beat out? New York City came in second, followed by Memphis, Tenn.
