Shot entirely in high definition by expert aerial videographers, viewers are sure to get a glimpse of San Diego like never before. Soar above San Diego’s most treasured destinations like Cabrillo National Monument, the Hotel del Coronado, La Jolla, Balboa Park, Del Mar, Palomar Observatory, Julian, and Mt. Helix, to name a few.

The program also details the history of some of our landmarks and neighborhoods while showcasing the sights of San Diego.

In addition to the iconic attractions of San Diego like the World Famous San Diego Zoo, Sea World and Torrey Pines, the program takes viewers to hidden vistas throughout the backcountry. See abundant waterfalls and snowy peaks, stone cliffs and green valleys that most would not associate with San Diego.

Whether a San Diego native or newcomer, viewers will marvel at the sights of San Diego throughout this program.

I would love to be able to just buy this DVD from the KPBS Store. I am already a member and can't afford to give at the $120 level. But, if you sold the DVD in the store for like $30 - $50 I'd buy one. Please make this a stand alone item.
