First Stop: San Diego

Swap out four wheels for two and rent a bike at one of the many shops near the Embarcadero boardwalk for a two-mile long ride along the San Diego Bay

Stop along the route at the Maritime Museum to check out one of the country’s most extensive collections of restored ships. Finish your tour with a ride on a hand-carved antique carousel in Seaport Village. 

Enjoy lunch at Carnitas Snack Shack (1004 N Harbor Dr. San Diego, CA 92101), a local favorite known for its tacos and tortas.

After lunch, if you’re up for another couple of miles, bike over to Balboa Park and explore the gardens and Spanish Colonial architecture. Or hop on the ferry and head to Coronado, where you can relax on the shore and at the Hotel del Coronado, where the movie “Some Like it Hot” was filmed.

Head to Little Italy for shopping and beer tasting along India Street between Cedar and Hawthorne Streets. Stop at local brewery Ballast Point for a tasting flight, shop for Japanese-inspired gifts at Vitreum, and test handmade skincare products at R.D. Alchemy nearby.
