the many chicken sandwiches
at The Crack Shack. See a lush
collection of palms, bamboo,
and succulents at the San Diego

Even if you don't have kids, plan
on an overnight at Cape Rey

beach. Take a tour of the
Museum of Making Music or
shop at Carlsbad Premium
Outlets, then enjoy wood-fired
dining at Campfire.

linger a while in Oceanside.
