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.
Visit La Jolla Cove and La Jolla Shores Park for some beach relaxation. Get in touch with nature at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and Mission Beach Park. Change things up with these side-trips from San Diego: Carlsbad (Carlsbad State Beach & LEGOLAND California) and Moonlight Beach (in Encinitas). Next up on the itinerary: get in on the family fun at SeaWorld San Diego, kick back and relax at Children's Pool, savor the flavors at Niederfrank's Ice Cream, and let little ones run wild at Balboa Park.

Cairo ©
More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
Take a break from the city and head to Zamalek (Gezira Island) and Valley of the Whales (Wadi Al-Hitan). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairo: Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Pyramids of Dahshour, & more). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Islamic Cairo, steep yourself in history at Mohamed Ali Mosque, delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, and see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum.

To see maps, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairo trip builder.
