DoubleTree by Hilton delivers harbor and city
views and is just steps away from Little Italy’s
attractions and eateries. The Comfort Inn Gaslamp
offers cozy rooms and complimentary breakfast.
The Old Town Western Inn is surrounded by lively
cantinas, restaurants, shops and the historic Whaley
House Museum. The Days Inn in Mission Valley
is a quick drive from SeaWorld and the Fashion
Valley mall. Spend a night at Kings Inn and start
the day out right with breakfast at its restaurant,
The Waffle Spot.
Taco Tuesday is practically a way of life in San Diego. Try the pastor at
The Taco Stand, a Baja-style fish taco from Rubio’s, or what La Vecinidad
is known for, a shrimp-and-bacon Costa Azul. Burritos more your thing?
Check out the wrestling memorabilia while you chow down on a California
burrito at Lucha Libre. Try one of San Diego’s favorite burgers at Hodad’s,
or check out the specials at Sushi Deli.
Hunt for one-of-a-kind keepsakes at Kobey’s Swap Meet, open every Friday
through Sunday at Pechanga Arena. Drive up to Mount Soledad for panoramic
city views, then check out happy hour at OB Brewery. Head to Pacific Beach
and swing by Ray’s Rentals for a board to hang ten (if you’re a landlubber,
they have bikes too.)
Experience America’s Finest
City without spending a
dime. No trip to San Diego
is complete without a day at
the beach. Visit La Jolla Cove
and watch the seals and sea
lions, or go tide pooling in
Solana Beach. You won’t
forget the views from the top
of the cliffs at Torrey Pines
State Natural Reserve, while
Kate Sessions Park is the
perfect place for a picnic.
Balboa Park is a blast any
day of the week, but on
Tuesdays certain museums
open their doors for free.
You can also find a farmers’
market somewhere every day
in San Diego. Sample local
produce and hit a gourmet
food truck for lunch.
LIVING IT UP IN SAN DIEGO DOESN’T
HAVE TO COST A FORTUNE. WITH A
LITTLE PLANNING AND INGENUITY,
YOU CAN HAVE A BLAST WITHOUT
BREAKING THE BANK.
