A Local's Guide to San Diego

Jul 15, 2008
I'm fortunate enough to have lived in San Diego much of my life. I've traveled over seas many times, but always come back. Why? Because there is so much to do. If you are going to be visiting, here are some ideas to keep you busy and happy.

Viva la Mexico! San Diego sits on the border with Tijuana just to the south. TJ, as it is known, is a lot of fun. Unfortunately, there has been a lot of drug crime lately, so make sure to check with locals on that status before heading down.

When it comes to partying, San Diego has a vast collection of locations that cater to everyone. One of the best is Lahaina's in Pacific Beach. Picture an outdoors deck facing the boardwalk and beach with plenty of beer and you have the right idea.

Just trolley it baby! San Diego has installed a trolley system that runs through parts of the county. Throw away your schedule of things to see. Just jump on the trolley, get off when you like and do some exploring. We're friendly people.

Bro, I wanna surf. If this sounds like a good statement to you, I have great news. San Diego is stuffed with surf schools. You can look them up online or ask around your area. There's one just about every three blocks.

If an adult beverage in a more regal spot is your idea of a good time, the Hyatt in downtown San Diego is the place to go. Well, the top floor at least. It is a classy bar with large windows overlooking all of San Diego.

San Diego and beaches are two terms that go together. There are lots of little beaches. If you want a beach with a bit of a hippie vibe, Ocean Beach is the place. From head shops to beer bars, OB has a little something for everyone.

Looking for something really different? How about bull fighting? They don't allow it in San Diego, but you can hop across the border and catch it in Tijuana. The bull ring is located on the coast to the west of the city.

This represents only a tiny list of the many things you can do in San Diego. I've lived here for 30 plus years and still find new things to do. People are friendly. The place is beautiful and fun is available at just about every turn. See you soon, dude!
