San Diego — 8 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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to San Diego Botanic Garden and Mission San Luis Rey. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Diego: Del Mar (Del Mar City Beach & Del Mar Dog Beach), Carlsbad (Carlsbad Food Tours, Miniataure Engineering Craftsmanship Museum (MECM), &more) and Encinitas (Moonlight State Beach & Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens). Next up on the itinerary: hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, get interesting insight from Tours, hike along San Clemente Coastal Trail, and see the interesting displays at San Diego Model Railroad Museum.
