Day 1

Arrive in San Diego

At the end of your road trip adventure, it’s now time to have some proper R&R. After your morning drive from Palm Springs or the big city up the coast, LA, you’ll arrive in the place that proudly calls itself ‘America’s Finest City’. Spend the afternoon relaxing by the pool or exploring the nearby old town. With its eclectic architecture, bars and shops, there’s plenty to keep you all out of mischief!

Days 2-3

Surf’s Up!

Make sure you have a hearty breakfast, as today you’ll do what the locals do, and go catch some waves! Your guided lesson is the perfect way to give surfing a go for the first time and is great fun for all the family. As one of the best places in the whole of the continent, with year-round perfect weather, it would be a shame not to give the Californian favourite pastime a try! With more than 60 beaches in the area, why not see what more the southern Californian coastline has to offer and top up those Vitamin D levels?
