5 Reasons San Diego is Tops for Spring Break

USA Today recently revealed its Top Destinations for Spring Break and San Diego (of course!) was among them. Here are 5 reasons why we think San Diego is a top pick for Spring Break:

1. Beaches

From surfing and paddleboarding to just strolling along the beach, San Diego’s 70 miles of beaches has something for everyone.

2. Nightlife

San Diego’s nightlife scene has never been hotter. Visitors can celebrate all year long in the Gaslamp Quarter with over 100 restaurants and clubs, it is the place to be any time of year. Visitors can also relax under the stars at the beach, go upscale in La Jolla or try something a little different in the Uptown neighborhood, North Park.

3. Attractions

The San Diego Zoo, LEGOLAND, SeaWorld San Diego, San Diego Zoo Safari Park…need we say more? Be sure to check out LEGOLAND’s expanded Star Wars exhibit in miniland.

4. Craft Brew

San Diego is home to the nation’s best brew pubs including Pizza Port which just recently won Small Brewpub of the Year at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival. In the next few months, you will have even more options when five more breweries open throughout the county.

5. The Great Outdoors

San Diego’s temperate weather allows for outdoor activities all year round. Go hiking along the water in Torrey Pines State Reserve or mountain biking through the natural landscapes of Mission Trails Regional Park. Here are a few more ideas to get outdoors. There is no reason you should stay inside while in San Diego!

To make your spring break even better, you can save up to 35 percent with these hotel deals and packages.

About Suzzanne

I love to buy books, but seldom actually finish one. I like african violets, my iPhone, and everything that smells like lavender.  I am seriously adverse to the cold and am known to bring a sweatshirt to the beach in the summer.  I have two kids – a boy whose 10 and a girl 12.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

It would start by having breakfast somewhere near the ocean – either Pannikin in Encinitas or Beach Grass Café in Solana Beach.  Then we would head to the beach hang out for a few hours, head home and then catch a concert in the park in Balboa Park.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

We love riding our bikes around town.  There are great places to ride in San Diego that kids can handle – Coronado Island, Point Loma or the boardwalk in Pacific Beach are just a few.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Depends on the day, a good burger and craft brew can really hit the spot, but I would probably end up ordering linguine and white wine.
