Kansas City — 4 nights

City of Fountains

The largest municipality in Missouri, Kansas City has an impressive array of world-class museums, shopping areas, and great places to eat, all of which attract tourism to the area.
Take a break from the city and head to Warsaw Riverfront & Trails and Little Blue Trace Trail. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead. Venture out of the city with trips to Lost Valley Fish Hatchery & Visitor Center (in Warsaw), Knob Noster State Park (in Knob Noster) and Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens (in Overland Park). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Arabia Steamboat Museum, get your game on at Blade & Timber Axe Throwing, grab your bike and head to The St. Joseph Parkway, and examine the collection at Pony Express Museum.

San Diego — 10 nights

America's Finest City

Get out of town with these interesting San Diego side-trips: San Clemente Coastal Trail (in San Clemente), Tyson Street Beach (in Oceanside) and Encinitas (Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens & Moonlight State Beach). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Coronado Beach, head off the coast to Coronado Island, get to know the resident critters at San Diego Zoo, and get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure.
