6. The Border Fence

Take a picture at the corner of the world: the wall is not one continuous structure and is actually a grouping of short physical walls that stop and start, secured in between with a “virtual fence” that includes a system of sensors and cameras monitored by Border Patrol Agents at the border of the USA and Mexico, located in Playas de Tijuana. Afterward, you can take a stroll on the pier and eat some seafood cocktails or enjoy a coconut.
