Discover the Hispanic heritage of San Diego. It is the southernmost city on the California coast, and also the oldest. It was founded in 1769, and has retained some Spanish influence.
Visit the Old Town State Historic Park. This is San Diego’s original downtown and a visit to Fiesta de Reyes will transport you into a Mexican atmosphere with dining arcades and mariachi players.
Then head to Hillcrest for a complete change of scenery. It is an urban pedestrian neighborhood. It is hip and eclectic and very gay friendly. Enter into trendy boutiques, vintage clothing stores, and an array of restaurants and cafes.
Grab something to eat in this vibrant area before getting Balboa Park, the nation’s largest urban cultural park. 17 museums, the Botanical Building, a magnificent century-old lath structure (admission, free) filled with more than 2,000 plants. Wander past the Spanish Colonial Revival-style buildings along the pedestrian mall, El Prado.
Cross the the San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge to go back to your hotel
Drive across the 2-mile-long, curved San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge with the wind whistling in your ears. If you’ve rented a convertible, put the top down now. In a word: invigorating.
Enjoy a lazy day
1 hour stand-up paddleboard course
In the calm waters of Mission Bay, it is easy to learn how to balance yourself on the board, and paddle your way out into the water. If you’re lucky, you may catch sight of a sea lion.
Have lunch at The Lucha Libre taqueria, where the theme is costumed Mexican wrestlers and among the best tacos in town.
Return to your hotel to enjoy the beach that afternoon
In the early evening head to Ocean Beach for a hippie vive, to catch a glimpse at surfers, pelicans and the breathtaking scenery of this coastal neighborhood. Make sure to arrive before sunset.
Then take a stroll down Newport Avenue, the main street, which is lined with breweries, and fish tacos restaurants.
If you are in the mood for Italian cuisine instead, you should head to South Park. If you like pizza, you will love Buona Forchetta restaurant and their pizza topped with burrata. (the only downside is that they don’t take reservations, put you can put your name on the list and sip a cocktail across the street at Kindred)
