One of many beaches you can visit. Belmont Park is a beachfront Amusement park. Walk or rent bikes to cruise the Boardwalk and check out Crystal Pier (it's open to the public). Garnet Ave is the center of trouble with bars, restaurants and shops. Law Street Park and Kate Sessions Park offers amazing views and sunsets for a family friendly place to relax. Bobby's stomping grounds 'til he fucken dies!
Part of Pacific Beach, Mission Bay is a great place for young children to enjoy the beach (all the sand with no waves). Fanuel Park has a playground on the beach. Take a short cruise on the Bahia Belle or rent paddle boards, kayaks, sailboats, or even a hot tub cruise to enjoy views from the water. Walking or biking paths are a great way to enjoy the bay view- if you're feeling a long bike ride, take the Boardwalk along the ocean from Crystal Pier to the jetty in South Mission and then back along Mission Bay.
Just north of Pacific Beach, swing by Mt. Soledad for an elevated panoramic view of San Diego. Where we got engaged! Then head further north to La Jolla for more beaches restaurants, shops and beautiful homes in a different tax bracket ;) Visit the "Children's Pool" to see & smell the sea lions.
Balboa Park is bigger than New York's Central Park with 17 museums, gardens galore and the world-famous San Diego Zoo.
Old Town is the location of the first European settlement in California. It is the oldest neighborhood in San Diego located in the heart of San Diego county. Quaint atmosphere, Mexican restaurants (homemade tortillas which are bomb AF), historic sites and shops.
Restaurants, bars, Petco Park (Padres), Michelle's old stomping grounds
Best views of Downtown San Diego Bay and a great walking or biking path! The Embarcadero is a busy cruise-ship hub, known for seafood and souvenir shops at Seaport Village, historical decommissioned naval aircraft carrier USS Midway Museum, and other maritime museums, attractions and boat tours.
Walking distance from Downtown and the Embarcadero, Little Italy has a huge Saturday morning Farmer's Market, Italian restaurants and bars. Directly under the flight path allows for some cool views of airplane bellies.
Take a ferry from Downtown, or drive across the Coronado Bridge to get to Coronado Island. Once there, drive or bike through the neighborhood, visit the famous Hotel Del Coronado, head to the beach or enjoy the shops and restaurants in this bougie community.
