See San Diego in a different light.

This 1 hour and 30 minute journey starts off by exploring the West Coast’s premier entertainment district known as the Gaslamp Quarter. Famed for its vibrant nightlife, bright lights and Victorian architecture, it will captivate your imagination of what makes this urban playground unforgettable. We’ll then make our way to Balboa Park, the largest urban cultural park in the US where it’s transformed at night by stunning buildings, fountains, and statues glowing bright that are equally as remarkable in the evening as they are during the day.

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

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

At the end of the tour, take your drink voucher to Top of the Hyatt, and enjoy breathtaking floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of San Diego at the top of the tallest waterfront hotel on the west coast.

What an amazing package to explore San Diego from day to night.
