America's Finest City

Bring the kids along to USS Midway Museum and San Diego Zoo. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir and Razor Point and Beach Trail Loop.

There's lots more to do: stroll through Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, see the interesting displays at Maritime Museum of San Diego, contemplate the long history of Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House, and stroll the grounds of Fort Rosecrans Cemetery.
