San Diego, California’s coastal seat, is the ultimate weekend destination for adventurous souls and sun-seekers. Discover the incredible waves and surf scene at La Jolla as you chat up the friendly locals and learn the history of surfing. Be awed by nature’s wonders, catching the glorious sunset at Sunset Cliffs while listening to waves rush in. Depending on the time of year, you can get a glimpse of dolphins and whales migrating off the coast. Similarly, if you’re near the bay or the oceanfront, you can pitch a tent by the shore and have the perfect summer night beach bonfire. Cue roasted marshmallows and all-American s’mores! Beer enthusiasts will revel in the city’s thriving brew culture – make sure to check out local breweries such as The Lost Abbey and Fall Brewing Company. At the end of your weekend trip, cap the night off with a night out in the Gaslamp District. The historic neighborhood is the site of several entertainment and night life venues, as well as funky events and street festivals.
