San Diego City Lights Night Tour

Famed for its vibrant nightlife, bright lights, and Victorian architecture, this unforgettable urban playground will captivate your imagination. Then, we’ll headto Balboa Park, one of the largest outdoor cultural centers in the US, with its stunning buildings, fountains, and statues glowing bright, transformed at night, and equally as remarkable in the evening as theyare during the day.

From Balboa Park, we’ll drive to the top of the Coronado Bridge for more spectacular sights, including the lights coming in from Tijuana, Mexico, the bay, and downtown San Diego. We’ll make a 15-minute stop at Coronado’s Ferry Landing,a perfect photo op location, to take in the stunning beauty of the San Diego city skyline visible from across the bay.

Then, you will re-board the trolley and headfor San Diego’s Little Italy. From its humble beginnings as the epicenter of the world’s tuna fishing industry to the high-spirited tourist destination of today, Little Italy is a chic, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood, packedwith trendy cocktail bars, brewpubs, and restaurants with bustling patios.

From there, we’ll make our way to the Embarcadero’s Bayfront views. You’ll see the Historic County Administration Building, the Maritime Museum’s Star of India, the USS Midway Museum, Seaport Village, the Headquarters, and also the Navy’s aircraft carriers across the bay.

At the end of the tour, take your tour ticket to Top of the Hyatt for 50% off all wines and enjoy breathtaking floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of San Diego at the top of the tallest waterfront hotel on the west coast. Restrictions apply.
