San Diego, CA, United States

If you are looking for a great place to visit in the winter time this will be the place to go! A wonderful destination for kids, adults, families, and couples. Beaches, mountains, parks, and biking trails galore keep you busy outdoors for all ages. They have amazing beaches, culture, and too many trails to run and bike, there is no excuse to not stay in shape during vacation or even get in better shape. Sailing, and surfing abound on the Pacific shores, really get to know the various beaches and interact with the locals to find the best places to ride the waves.
