Day 1 - San Diego


Drive into downtown San Diego from the San Diego Freeway's 10th Street and park on the outskirts of Balboa Park. Walk into the park via a tile adorned bridge where you'll be welcomed with a sea of people, luscious gardens, fountains and an array of museums to choose from. Decide which to visit, but take special notice as you'll want to check out the world famous zoo before the day is done. Ideally, Balboa Park's beauty is found in the architecture and landscape, which can be enjoyed with a simple walking tour on your way into the Zoo.

Just minutes from the beach and Highway 1, Belly Up in Solana Beach is amidst the Cedros Design District, where famed designers, entrepreneurs and the area's most uniques shops can be found.

Day 5 - San Diego


The Gaslamp Quarter isn't just for a night out on the town. Enjoy an afternoon game with the San Diego Padres, where you can pick up the San Diego Trolley from your hotel. Stroll around the Gaslamp following the 9 innings, as Petco Park is located within the city's center.

After a late afternoon sporting event, use your remaining energy for San Diego's Shout! House, where dueling pianos go at it night after night per the request of the house. Audiences enjoy an open bar and request their favorite songs - everything from the Beatles to Britney Spears - with a fun and quirky interpretation by the house band.
