San Diego’s history, social and economic makeup are all tied to the Military’s presence in the region. As we celebrate the Marine’s 235th anniversary today, we wanted to share some great ways you can see and experience the Military’s rich history in San Diego.
MCRD Museum Historical Society – The society presents the history of the United States Marine Corps in San Diego. Visitors can see unique military collections, impressive military art, documents, and memorabilia exhibits.
Liberty Station – Formerly the site of San Diego’s Naval Training Center, Liberty Station is rich in history and culture with unique museums, historic …
Fall is in the air – A perfect time to check out San Diego’s Anza-Borrego Desert and the quaint desert town of Borrego Springs. Following are five fun ways to explore and experience this captivating landscape:
1. Star gazing… Borrego Springs is an International Dark Sky Community – only the second in the world! No doubt because downtown is illuminated by only 25 or so streetlights. At night, gaze skyward to behold the most spectacular sparkling display of stars in the state. The quiet stillness and sheer vastness of this stellar tapestry will take your breath away!
2. Walk …
A couple of weeks ago, I celebrated my birthday with help from family and friends and so, in true Stephenie fashion, of course we had to do something awesome…Enter Brew Hop San Diego, the company that takes you behind-the-scenes for tours and tastings at some of San Diego’s best breweries (think wine tasting, but with beer… and a whole lot cooler).
San Diego is currently home to more than 30 breweries located throughout the county and quite proudly, our breweries have been dominating the craft beer scene in recent years – winning awards and gaining national and international recognition …
This morning I was able to see the Portugese tall ship Sagres make its way into the Embarcadero. I was able to see the sails all the way from my office, and made it down there just as the sailors were docking. It was amazing to see a full crew make its way into the port and watch them lift sails and throw lines to come ashore after their long journey from Portugal.
The 295-foot-long ship serves as a training vessel for cadets in the Portuguese Navy and as a traveling goodwill ambassador for Portugal. It is also the sister …

It’s not many Wednesdays that I can combine eating great food, the history of San Diego’s Red Light District, electronic music, a dessert pizza and getting the chance to meet a handful of great people! Last week I had the pleasure of taking one of So Diego Tour’s Restaurant Hops in the Gaslamp District that incorporated all of those things. In fact, I am still salivating over all the great dishes I tried!
Restaurant Hops are a fun way to explore the city, eat some great food, and meet some fun people at the same time. The Hop that I attended started at The Marble …
The tours will last 45 minutes to an hour and be offered twice a day on weekends at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
To that end, I wanted to share this fun link. Earlier in the week I was feeling the need for a good holiday pick-me-up and decided that I needed a holiday light fix. Luckily I remembered seeing an email from our friends over at Skyy Limousine on this very same topic! While Skyy would be thrilled to take you and yours around to see holiday lights in one of …
This just in….
Whale watching season is in full swing as California gray whales migrate down to Baja California to birth their young in warmer waters. But to our surprise, it seems that a pod of Orcas (aka Shamus) are in town for the holidays.
On a recent Hornblower whale watching tour, San Diego Natural History Museum Whaler, Karen Marshall, shares what she saw:
“Captain Bill went out to the 9 mile bank and just after we got across from the Coronado Islands we saw several Orca whales swimming out in front of helm. As we saw two …
