Day 7, Catalina Island, California, USA
Spy the beautiful casino on your approach to the pretty little town of Avalon, and you will begin to experience a place that takes you back in time. William Wrigley, Jr. of Wrigley chewing gum fame bought the island in 1919 as a place for his Chicago Cubs to train and developing a small resort for generations of day-trippers and honeymooners. Home to the Santa Catalina Island Conservancy, the rugged landscape is a haven for wildlife. Day 7, Cruising the Coast of Mexico
Day 8, Ensenada, Mexico
Ensenada, third-largest city in the state of Baja, is famed for many things. Sunny and mild weather helps yield fine wines considered to be the best in Mexico. Ensenada also boasts several celebrated surfing spots. A third lure is off-road racing, with the Baja 1000 and Baja 500 each held annually. Rivaling Carnival in Rio and Mardi Gras in New Orleans is Ensenada’s Carnaval, when revelers fill the streets for six fun-filled days. Migrating gray whales draw their fair share of travelers as well.
Day 9, San Diego, California, USA
From the old Gas Lamp Quarter to the Horton Plaza, named after the former owner of the present city area, San Diego combines history with progress. Bordered on one side by the graceful Pacific Ocean lapping its shores and the hot desert plains on the other, this magical city is a festive and colorful attraction for tourists and locals. Close by lies graceful La Jolla, Spanish for the jewel, and Solana Beach, a beach community located near charming Del Mar. Whether you venture into Old Town, the original site of this city, or one of its gorgeous parks, you'll come to understand why San Diego has established itself as one of the most popular destinations in the United States.
