America's Finest City

You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Diego: Laguna Beach (Heisler Park, Crystal Cove, &more), Veteran's Park (in San Juan Capistrano) and Encinitas (Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens & Moonlight State Beach). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Lions, Tigers & Bears, stroll through Coronado Beach, pedal to the sights with Mission Bay Park, and head off the coast to Coronado Island.
