San Diego


The crown jewel of America's zoos, the San Diego Zoo is one of the best in the world. The zoo is also renowned for its successful on-site breeding of giant pandas, something no visitor should miss. San Diego has several other world-class museums, including the stunning Museum of Man, which displays relics from the pre-Columbian period of the Americas. Kids will also love nearby Legoland, a theme park that appears to have been constructed entirely from Legos.
