Get out of town with these interesting San Francisco side-trips: Oxbow Public Market (in Napa) and Safari West (in Santa Rosa). Spend the 2nd (Thu) on a tasty journey with a beer tour and tasting. There's much more to do: head off the coast to Alcatraz Island, kick back and relax at Baker Beach, take in the views from Golden Gate Bridge, and have fun and explore at Exploratorium.

Divided into neighborhoods with distinct characters and cultural heritages, San Diego sits just north of the Mexican border and offers visitors a blend of tourist attractions, including a lively nightlife, diverse cuisine, and a thriving musical scene.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at La Jolla Cove and Children's Pool. For shopping fun, head to Gaslamp Quarter or Fashion Valley. When in San Diego, make a side trip to see Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, approximately 32 minutes away. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, find something for the whole family at SeaWorld San Diego, kick back and relax at Mission Beach Park, and let little ones run wild at Balboa Park.

To plan San Diego vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
