San Diego — 4 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.
Get outdoors at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and Lions, Tigers & Bears. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at La Jolla Shores Park and San Clemente Coastal Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Del Mar City Beach (in Del Mar), La Jolla Zip Zoom Zipline (in Pauma Valley) and Oceanside (Oceanside Pier & Tyson Street Beach). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Windansea Beach, tee off at San Clemente Municipal Golf Course, pause for some photo ops at The Unconditional Surrender, and stroll through Coronado Beach.
