While it’s in the same state, San Diego feels like a different world with its six-lane highways, electric scooters, and extensive Spanish History. If you are going to San Diego, plan to budget enough time to do it all. Below are a few of my favorites from my family’s trip of the holiday break.
Seaport Village (at Sunset)First, you should definitely visit the Seaport Village. It combines a beautiful shoreline and a bunch of little gift shops. I visited it closer to sunset, and I strongly recommend doing that. The sunset was definitely worth it, and there are a lot of food options in the area so you can munch while enjoying the beautiful view. There are also plenty of electric scooters you can hop on and take for a quick ride around Seaport Village in a few minutes.
Historic DowntownAnother great place to visit is the Historic Downtown. It has beautiful architecture, free museums, and some really cute shops. I loved looking at all of the bright and colorful ceramics in the shops. It is a great place to walk around and take pictures of first missions.
Heritage County ParkRight next to the downtown there is Heritage County Park. It was probably one of my most memorable places in San Diego because of the beautiful houses and their history. The buildings combine architecture from all of the different time periods, particularly beautiful buildings were from Victorian England. They are so impressive! Near one of the last houses there is a little trail to get to the top of the hill, which opens to a stunning overview of San Diego and it’s Historic Downtown.
San Diego ZooAn absolute must when visiting San Diego, is the San Diego Zoo and Safari. It was such a great experience looking at all kinds of animals. I saw everything from flamingos, kangaroos, and elephants to pandas, cheetah, and giraffe. Even though it’s a little pricey, it is for sure a great experience that everyone should try.
Honorable MentionsSome other great places that make San Diego special are La Jolla beach, UC San Diego, University of San Diego and Little Italy district.Have fun exploring San Diego on your next vacation!
