The city is referred to as ‘America’s Finest City’ for a good reason; with rich history at the USS Midway Museum and Navy Pier, nightlife at downtown’s Gaslamp Quarter, stunning views at Point Loma, easy-access to Mission Beach and La Jolla, authentic Mexican cuisine, and endless adventure at Balboa Park.
Balboa Park, in San Diego, is one of the largest urban parks in the US and features museums, gardens, trails, and the world-famous San Diego Zoo. Many suggest that the San Diego Zoo is the best in the world, with over 3,700 animals and more than 650 different species!
Los Angeles, CA
There’s quite a lot to do in the City of Angels. As the entertainment capital of the world, Los Angeles is full of excitement, and home to today’s biggest stars in film, music, art, and sports.
While in Los Angeles, take a walk down Hollywood Boulevard’s Walk of Fame, explore Venice Beach and the Santa Monica Pier, hike to The Hollywood Sign, check out the Griffith Observatory, catch a Lakers game, shop on Rodeo Drive, or relax on a ride along the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu.
