Here are some of the main areas we can’t recommend enough. And with the ease and convenience of an All Star Van, you know you’ll be able to see every one of these areas during your visit.
La Jolla Shores
This upscale beach is a mile long stretch of soft sand and gentle surf. Whether you are looking for a great spot to get some much needed relaxation and a fabulous tan, or are feeling more adventurous and want to learn how to surf, this is the place for you. If you prefer get that tan on the water, no problem, this beach is also the closest beach that offers a boat launch.
This amazing beach sparkles in the California sunshine due to its unique mica and sand mixture. This beach is home to one of the most striking and beautiful hotels in San Diego, the Hotel Del Coronado.
If you want some action this is place you want to be. Commonly referred to as ‘the Strand’, you’ll be joined by skateboarders, bikers, volleyball players and many more. There is glow fires, beach parties, and music all night for you to enjoy.
This amazing place houses the infamous San Diego Zoo.
However, this is not all! Here you will also find the California Tower, museums, libraries, art centers, and a an abundance of gardens to explore.
Old Town San Diego State Historic Park
Old Town is a historical part of San Diego located in the heart of the city. With a variety of events, festivals, theater and amazing restaurants this is definitely one of our top recommendations.
And if you are looking for an extra thrill, you can visit the Whaley House, named the #1 haunted house in the USA.
Known for one of the largest collections of historic sea vessels in the USA, the Maritime Museum is a joy to visit for any ship lover. The museum is lucky enough to be the location of the 1863 Star of India, a full-rigged iron windjammer ship.
The USS Midway is another maritime museum, however, this museum is a much more modern version. This aircraft carrier was the longest-serving in the 20th century and was home to over 200,000 sailors who partook in naval aviation and humanitarian missions.
San Diego’s Signature Meal
There is no way we could list all the amazing restaurants that San Diego has to offer, however, what we can recommend is what you should eat.
Plain and simple. San Diego makes a mean taco! Especially the fish tacos.
And to top it off, the city knows how to make a mean margarita to go with it.
