San Diego, California

It's one thing for a chamber of commerce to brag that they have the best weather in the nation, but in the case of San Diego it's actually true. This city is blessed with more than 300 days of sunshine and temperatures that are nearly always in the 70s. It's no surprise then that San Diego was the site of Europe's first settlement in California in 1769.

Get out to Mission Beach and jog along the boardwalk or stroll on the wide sandy beaches. Spend a day at beautiful Spanish-inspired Balboa Park. Explore the world famous San Diego Zoo. Book a Sunrise Surprise Stroll - offered two or three times a month - and see how animals like a Giant Panda and a group of meerkats start their day. Relax with a picnic in front of the park's iconic Botanical Building.

Dig into a stack of sweet strawberry granola pancakes or a warm savory bowl of house chilaquiles at Mission. Get your fill of surf and turf with a grilled beef and shrimp Surfin' California taco from Lucha Libre Gourmet Taco Shop. Kick back and start your evening with a spicy Pintorita cocktail and a plate of truffled ahi poke at Bootlegger.
