Valencia was perfect
Valencia totally surpassed all my expectations. It was clean, and very vibrant during the day and at night. Very friendly people. The beaches are outstanding, so make sure you get there. We saw the City of Arts and Sciences during the day and at night and both times, the structures make you feel like you are on a different planet. Food and drink was great, and affordable. Breakfast/lunch at the market is a must.
Insider Tip:Check to see if there is a party going on at the Botanical Gardens at the City of Arts and Sciences during the late evening. Crazy cool experience! Also, if you're athletically inclined, make sure you play some pick up soccer with people from all countries on the beach around 6-8pm when the sand cools off.
