Known for its laid-back vibe, beautiful beaches, and year-round pleasant weather, San Diego offers endless opportunities for exploration. Downtown San Diego provides all the entertainment you'd expect from California's second-largest city, with a plethora of dining options, shopping opportunities, and cultural attractions.<br><br> We'll be staying just north of downtown San Diego in La Jolla, an eclectic beach community renowned for its surfing and golf. Downtown La Jolla offers a diverse mix of shopping, art, and dining options that cater to any style. The coastline of La Jolla is particularly beautiful, with a craggy coastline broken by inviting beaches. Offshore, surfing, marine wildlife viewing, snorkeling, and scuba diving are all popular in the crystal-clear waters. We'll be staying at the incredible Lodge at Torrey Pines while we're in town.
