Destination San Diego Episode 8: Exploring Beyond Downtown

Downtown may be the best known area of San Diego, but there are plenty of places to explore beyond downtown’s borders! In this edition of Destination San Diego, we’ll explore some of the neighborhoods in Southeastern San Diego. We’ll also take a look at the story of the spectacular span between San Diego and Coronado, then venture to a historic street in Chula Vista. And, we’ll show you a spot just northeast of downtown San Diego that’s been called “the best backyard in San Diego.” Plus, local surf and action photographer, Aaron Chang, dishes on San Diego’s art scene, inspiring views and the can’t-miss galleries.

About Candice

Foodie, craft beer nerd, shopaholic, music geek, photographer and contemporary art fan could all be used to describe me. I’m a big proponent of highlighting San Diego’s hidden gems and local businesses and breaking stereotypes about our city. We’re more than just sunshine and beaches (though those are nice, too!). What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day? Eating and shopping around my favorite neighborhoods: Golden Hill, South Park, North Park, Little Italy and Hillcrest. Then popping into one of our great art museums and capping off the night with some live music and a a local beer at The Casbah. What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity? Does shopping count as an outdoor activity? Or checking out the public art around town, like at Chicano Park? I do love visiting the La Jolla tide pools in the summer and ice skating at the outdoor rinks that go up each winter. Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine? Let's get one thing straight here: San Diego craft beer goes with everything, not just burgers. Though it is really good with a burger. Latest music purchases for my iPod player are… I’m lucky to be married to a music journalist, so advance copies of the newest albums are constantly available to me for free. But I can’t seem to stop playing the new album by CHVRCHES, and San Diego band Rocket from the Crypt have been on repeat a lot lately.
