San Diego — 6 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.
Step out of the city life by going to Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and Cabrillo National Monument. Venture out of the city with trips to Lions, Tigers & Bears (in Alpine), Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens (in Encinitas) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Newport Beach). There's lots more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at San Diego Zoo, explore the galleries of Maritime Museum of San Diego, enjoy the sand and surf at La Jolla Cove, and take in breathtaking views at Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve.
