    1 Thursday, December 23, 2021 San Diego, USA Embark 4:00 PM
    View of San Diego, USA

    San Diego is a coastal Southern Californian city located in the SW corner of the United States. Founded in 1769, it is the oldest town in California and has an enchanting natural beauty and a pleasant, mild, climate with plenty of sunshine, which defines the city. Though it’s big, and growing fast, San Diego manages to ‘hang on to’ a resort feel, even amid the skyscrapers and brick facades of its revamped downtown. A huge influx of visitors helps add to the vacation atmosphere, from party-hearty undergrads to boozy conventioneers. Read more about San Diego, USA
