San Diego, CA
It’s not by accident that sunny San Diego, California regularly tops ‘best places to live’ lists. Having one of the most pleasant climates in the U.S. helps, not to mention the vibrant street life, compelling Mission-style architecture, plus food and craft beer culture. All of this comes together to make San Diego a delicious destination, one you can really savor before or after a cruise to Mexico. It’s true — these cruises departing from San Diego are great for experiencing one of the world’s greatest zoos and the hot local nightlife, but for folks looking to get a taste of San Diego, check out Mexico cruises from San Francisco, many of which make San Diego one of their destinations!
