Top Things To Do In San Diego: September 13-16, 2012

It looks like another great weekend is ahead of us in San Diego. For those not headed to the Q for the Chargers game, here are our top picks for the weekend.

1. San Diego Bayfair

Head over to Mission Bay to witness San Diego’s World Series of Powerboat Racing, September 14-16. The boats, some racing at speeds over 225 miles per hour, come every year to San Diego because of the outstanding race course conditions and summer weather. But it’s the family festival, live entertainment, vendors, great food and beer gardens, fireworks, kid’s fun zone and other family activities, which set the event apart from others, all in San Diego’s jewel, Mission Bay Park.

2. Arts Month San Diego

This week’s highlight is La Jolla. La Jolla is home to the La Jolla Playhouse, The San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as UCSD’s Stuart Collection. Visitors can walk around the University of California, San Diego’s campus and enjoy the public art on display. One of my favorites is the “Bear.”

3. San Diego Restaurant Week

Indulge in a week of delicious dining during San Diego Restaurant Week. Restaurant Week kicks of Sunday, September 16 and runs through Friday, September 21. Foodies can eat their way through over 180 participating restaurants that will offer three-course prix-fixe dinner menus for just $20, $30, or $40 per person.

4. Haute La Jolla Nights

The Village of La Jolla comes alive, Saturday, September 15 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM with great bands playing throughout the Village, restaurants and bars preparing delicious tastings and drink specials as well as a sidewalk sale and other fun events.

5. Julian Apple Harvest

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.

  1. I’m a bit confused on the dates for the festival. Is this weekend when they start apple picking or is there another event going on?
