I have always thought of San Diego as, “That sleepy little beach town just south of S. California.” Let’s face it, we are NOT Los Angeles or Orange County. San Diego has it’s own vibe and pace. We are laid back and buzzed on craft beer. We surf, skate, hike, wander, and do “Local” better than most. With that said I offer up some of the best things to do this summer in San Diego courtesy of SanDiego.org.
FREE things to do: Beaches. It’s no secret San Diego is home to some of the best beaches in the world. We offer everything from surf beaches to walking beaches. Kids beaches to adult beaches. A few of my favs include Law St. in Pacific Beach, Coronado, San Elijo, Ocean Beach, and of course Mission Beach.
Balboa Park after Dark. Consistently rated as one of the best urban parks in the country, Balboa Park comes alive at night! Check it out!
Attractions: Where to start? The Zoo and Wild Animal Park? Sea World? Del Mar Races? LegoLand? Belmont Park? Birch Aquarium? Cabrillo National Monument? OK take your pick!
4th of July: San Diego has deep military roots and no one does Independence Day like San Diego! From the parade on Coronado to the massive and synced up fireworks displays, San Diego does the 4th of July right!
Del Mar Horse Racing: There is literally no better place on Earth then opening day at Del Mar. Where the turf meets the surf! Racing starts on July 19th, and in addition to racing be sure to enjoy the several concerts happening as well.
