San Diego
New York has its cabbie, Chicago its bluesman and Seattle its coffee-drinking boho. San Diego has its surfer dude, with his tousled hair, great tan and gentle enthusiasm, he looks like he’s on a perennial vacation, and when he wishes you welcome, he really means it.

San Diego calls itself ‘America’s Finest City’ and its breezy confidence and sunny countenance filter down even to folks you encounter every day on the street. It feels like a collection of villages each with their own personality, but it’s the nation’s eighth-largest city and we’re hard-pressed to think of a place of any size that’s more laid-back.

What’s not to love? San Diego bursts with world-famous attractions for the entire family, including the zoo, Legoland, and the museums of Balboa Park, plus a bubbling Downtown, beautiful hikes for all, more than 60 beaches, and America’s most perfect weather.
