San Diego — 3 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.
When in San Diego, make a side trip to see Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens in Encinitas, approximately Encinitas away. There's much more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at San Diego Zoo, immerse yourself in nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, browse the exhibits of Maritime Museum of San Diego, and let little ones run wild at Balboa Park.

For photos, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the San Diego holiday planner.
