San Diego — 9 nights

America's Finest City

Divided into neighborhoods with distinct characters and cultural heritages, San Diego sits just north of the Mexican border and offers visitors a blend of tourist attractions, including a lively nightlife, diverse cuisine, and a thriving musical scene.
Escape the urban bustle at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Lions, Tigers & Bears. Explore hidden gems such as La Jolla Shores Park and Coronado Island. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around San Diego: San Diego Zoo Safari Park (in Escondido), Laguna Beach (Pacific Marine Mammal Center & Crystal Cove) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Dana Point). There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Point Loma, enjoy the sand and surf at Coronado Beach, stroll through South Carlsbad State Beach, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at San Diego Zoo.
