San Diego -- and the Westin Gaslamp Quarter Hotel
The eighth-largest city in the United States and second-largest in California, San Diego is a 465-year-old settlement that has been called "the birthplace of California." It is known for its mild year-round climate, natural deep-water harbor, extensive beaches, long association with the U.S. Navy, and recent emergence as a healthcare and biotechnology development center. Plus: One of the world's most famous zoos!
San Diego is one of the top-ten best climates according to the Farmers' Almanac and is one of the two best summer climates in America as scored by The Weather Channel. Typical late August/early September weather in the city ranges from a high of 77 degrees (F), and low of 66 degrees (F).
The 2017 NASCUS State System Summit is headquartered at the beautiful Westin Gaslamp Quarter Hotel. Located conveniently on the border of the historic Gaslamp Quarter (a restored, historic commercial district that traces its beginnings to the Victorian Age), it offers easy access to fine dining, shopping, nightlife and other attractions that are just steps away. Other highlights of the city -- including Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, the waterfront and more -- is a short distance away.
