San Diego’s uptown neighborhood of Hillcrest, home of San Diego’s LGBT community, celebrates diversity year-round with a vibrant rainbow mix of accommodations, restaurants, bars and nightclubs, chic boutiques, vintage clothing stores, kitschy novelty shops and so much more.
With San Diego Pride coming up next month (July 12-14), now is the perfect time to spotlight a few of my favorite places worth checking out…
As the days are getting longer and warmer, it’s hard to escape the allure of San Diego’s 70 miles of coastline. Of course, when you’re enjoying a day along San Diego’s sparkling shore, dressed in your finest flip flops and swimsuit, the last thing you want to do is pack up your towels and beach lounger in search of quick beachside eats. Fortunately, a tasty meal is only steps away from the sand at these casual beachside restaurants and snack shops.
With 70 miles of coastline to the west and vast deserts and rolling hills to the east, the possibilities for enjoying the great outdoors in San Diego are limitless. Just in North County alone, visitors can hike, bike, surf, go for a trail ride on horseback, paraglide, and much more. Ask any local San Diegan and they’ll tell you that staying in shape is a big part of the San Diego lifestyle – hey, you have to be in tip-top shape to surf Swami’s Beach or hike Cowles Mountain – and eating right is a big part of San Diego’s healthy lifestyle. Fortunately, thanks to these delicious options, eating right doesn’t mean eating like a rabbit. The following North County farm fresh dining venues offer cuisine that’s conscious of your health (and the planet’s, too!).
The Padres’ season is upon us, and as fans flock into one of the country’s best ballpark (just ask TripAdvisor), visitors to San Diego’s Petco Park better come armed with a good appetite. Locals know that the great food offerings within Petco set it apart from other ballparks – Filippi’s Pizza Grotto, Anthony’s Seafood, and Ballast Point Brewing Co. are just a few of the San Diego food and beverage favorites you can find within Petco’s walls.
But why limit your options when you’re within walking distance of more than 200 restaurants? Before and/or after the game, head into the streets of Downtown to explore a wealth of dining options, from global flavors to classic American burgers.
Escape to San Diego for the first weekend of Spring and bask in the warm sunshine while enjoying these fun top things to do!
San Diego’s restaurants do romance right. Just ask Travel + Leisure and Yahoo, who named the Marine Room as one of America’s Most Romantic Restaurants. Nestled on the sands of La Jolla Shores, the Marine Room uses nature to set the mood as rolling waves from the Pacific lap up against the restaurant’s expansive windows.
Of course, the Marine Room is just one of many San Diego restaurants where romance is on the menu. This Valentine’s Day, book ahead to ensure the best table at one of these desirable hot spots.
Here’s a holiday worth celebrating: National Pie Day! San Diego has long been a destination for pie lovers due to the numerous pie producers in Julian, but the quaint mountain town in San Diego’s East County isn’t the only spot to find great pie.
