San Diego, CAlifornia

I've been to San Diego a few times - but for some reason, it took a couple tries before I really focused on it as a destination in its own right. Years ago, my family stopped there before continuing to Hawaii, and I got a chance to see the famous zoo (and the pandas)! I also spent a few days there immediately following my college graduation, for the first of many friends' weddings.

But the first time I really got to do any exploring was during a visit to see my boyfriend's family. Though the weekend was packed with activities, I was able to take advantage of the famously beautiful SoCal weather and see some of what San Diego has to offer, including a gorgeous hike in Torrey Pines.
