From boxing and baseball to lingerie football leagues, the best vacation itineraries for sports lovers whatever their team.

San Diego: Skate and Surf

5 of 16

Sunny San Diego is a mecca for action sports nuts: surfing, BMX biking, hang gliding, mountain biking, and of course, skateboarding (it’s home to grinding legend Tony Hawk). Practice your tricks at one of the area’s few dozen skateparks and surfing beaches, and celebrate the Golden State’s iconic surfing culture at the California Surf Museum a bit north in Oceanside. Team sports fans have a pilgrimage point, too, at the Padres’ Petco Park, one of America’s best baseball stadiums thanks to its beach and palm trees beyond center field.

Time Out: Traveling with kids? You can’t miss LEGOLAND. For beautiful views, the Ocean Terrace of George’s California Modern offers sustainable seafood and panoramic scenes of La Jolla Cove.
