San Diego

The city of San Diego tends to be overlooked in favour of its big sister cities, San Francisco and Los Angeles, but there’s plenty of fun activities, art and culture to be had here that rival its more popular neighbours. San Diego is most famous for its huge Bay. Wherever you look in San Diego there are glittering seas and boats anchoring. To get a real feel for this seaside city, take to the open waters in a ferry and catch magnificent views of the San Diego Bay and its bustling coastline. Another great place to appreciate San Diego’s seafront position is the gorgeous beaches. The number one beach to visit is La Jolla Cove which has a distinctly Mediterranean vibe complete with quaint cafes and bars.

At La Jolla Cove you’ll also have chance to meet the locals – dozens of seals and sea lions!If you’re on a family holiday, San Diego has plenty to offer the little ones. Starting with the incredible Legoland theme park and finishing up at the San Diego Zoo, you’ll need at least a few days to get round all of the parks here, but luckily most of them are all in one place – the epic Balboa Park. Balboa Park is undoubtedly San Diego’s top tourist attraction boasting 8 stunning open air gardens and no less than 15 theme parks. There’s even a famous theatre here if you’re in need of some grown up time.
