Sun n’ Fun in San Diego California

San Diego Fun n’ Sun

About as far south as you can go on California’s coast line, you’ll find yourself in San Diego, a true travel gem with and endless array of attractions, activities, and the most beautiful weather and beaches you’ll find on the west coast.  The San Diego airport has direct flights from most major airports and is conveniently located next to downtown and the cruise ship terminals.  San Diego is around an hour and a half drive from Los Angeles, which also makes it a good day destination for those visiting L.A.

You will find hundreds of attractions and things to do in and around San Diego.  You have a world famous zoo, wild animal park, Sea World amusement park, Coronado Island, Mission Bay Aquatic Park, Tijuana Mexico, Lego Land, as well as other top rated family entertainment and sports venues.  There is always something new we find that is fun and interesting to do each time we visit San Diego.  On a recent trip to San Diego we stumbled upon the WaveHouse at Mission Beach’s Belmont Park.  The WaveHouse is a huge indoor & outdoor man made wave riding & entertainment facility at the beach.  Learn to surf in controlled waves with no sharks and take in a real Southern California party atmosphere complete with music, food & drinks and the beach.  Oh yes, you will also find a roller coaster at Mission Beach as well as plenty of surf shops, bars and a beachwalk that stretches north to Pacific Beach.  Rent a beach cruiser bike and ride up the beachwalk to Pacific Beach (or skates & roller-blades for the adventurous).

If you love the beach and that beach-town feel, the numerous beach communities that stretch from the Tijuana Mexico border to North San Diego County’s Oceanside, are well worth a visit and make a great way to spend a day taking a drive along the coast, stopping in each little seaside town’s beach-side center.  Many feel like a little modern seaside village with small shops, boutiques, art galleries, antique shops, restaurants and bars, all near the ocean.  One of our favorites is La Jolla, a high-end upscale Rodeo Drive like village of high-end fashion, Lamborghini’s, and fine dinning.  Prospect Drive in the main street than runs trough town.  Just north of town, make a point to take a drive on La Jolla Farms Drive it you want to see some really nice ocean front mansions, one after another.  North of La Jolla, you’ll find the beach towns of Del Mar, famous for it’s horse race track, and Carlsbad, which is known for Lego Land and its high-end Resorts & Spas like the La Costa Resort & Spa, the Grand Pacific Palisades, and others.

You’ll find fabulous accommodations all around San Diego.  Whether its down town San Diego, Carlsbad, or Coronado Island, San Diego has awesome hotels & resorts, and plenty of them.  That’s good for the savvy traveler that knows how to keep an eye out and find a good deal.  In low seasons you’ll find many hotels may struggle to fill vacancies and there is competition.  Your travel agent can help or have a handy online travel booking website that you frequent.  One on San Diego’s main industries is tourism, so you will find promotions and vacation package deals regularly on the internet.
