San Diego is the most Southern spot in California. It borders Mexico and is known for its relaxed pace of life and warm climate. It gets less tourism than L.A. and yet as a vacation spot, San Diego has a whole lot to offer. Here are six things you shouldn’t miss if you head to the south of Cali.
Ride the Waves
San Diego is famous for its surfer scene. If you head to San Diego and don’t ride a wave, you’ve done something very wrong.
Eat at In ‘N’ Out
In ‘N’ Out is a fast-food chain that is native to California. We don’t know what they put in their food but whatever it is, it’s worth crossing the country for.
Visit Old Town
Old Town is a charming little town with plenty of photo opps. You can take a free walking tour and learn about the origins of the peculiar town.
Head to Little Italy
Little Italy is home the site of ArtWalk, the largest festival on the West Coast. It is a unique neighborhood where you can visit art galleries, eat authentic Italian food, and experience the vibrant buzz of the Italian community.
Grab a Bite at a Mexican Food Truck
Given that it borders Mexico, it is no surprise that San Diego has a whole lot to offer when it comes to Mexican food. The Mexican food trucks are truly something and should not be missed.
Stroll Through the Gaslamp Quarter
The Gaslamp Quarter is the arts and culture hub of San Diego. We recommend visiting Copley Symphony Hall and catching a show. It’s also a great place to grab a cocktail.
