San Diego, California

Located 120 miles south of Los Angeles, San Diego is the second largest city in California (1.4 million residents) and eighth largest in the US. Historically home to the Kumeyaay people (Native Americans), San Diego was the first site visited by Europeans on what is now the West Coast of the United States.

Interesting trivia about San Diego includes the fact that while San Diego sports teams have never won a World Series, Super Bowl or NBA championship, San Diego is skater heaven. Olympian Shaun White and legendary skater Tony Hawk were both born and raised here. There are over 7,000 farms in San Diego and the city produces more avocados than any other place in the US. Nearby La Jolla used to have an area of houses referred to as “the munchkin houses” due to the fact that they were inhabited by some of the actors who played Munchkins in the Wizard of Oz film. Charles Lindbergh made history when he flew from San Diego to New York and then non-stop to Paris on the Spirit of St. Louis in 1927. The San Diego Zoo played home to the first baby panda born in the Western Hemisphere since 1990 with Hua Mei, born to a pair of giant pandas. The panda even got a café named after her in the zoo. Celebrity Cruises visits and sails from San Diego on numerous Panama Canal and Pacific Coastal itineraries.
