The new memorial at Tuna Harbor Park, “A National Salute to Bob Hope and the Military,” is the crowning piece in the Port of San Diego Public Art program’s Greatest Generation Collection, which is a series of art pieces and memorials honoring people, events and military heritage from World War II to present day. Bob Hope’s presence in the collection is fitting since that is just about the same span of time that he entertained U.S. troops overseas.
This past weekend was one of the best weather weekends we’ve had in a while! I really enjoyed my weekly beach volleyball games at Ocean Beach, but decided Sunday afternoon that my dose of beach on Saturday was just not enough for the weekend. With 70 miles of beaches in San Diego, there are a […]
Treat dad to a special Father’s Day this weekend and check out these fun events : 1. This Saturday, watch adorable pups ride the waves during the 4th Annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition at Imperial Beach. This free event, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., features talented surfing dogs as they surf in three […]
One of the most overlooked aspects of San Diego is our abundance of great golf courses. Despite perfect weather and an amazing selection of courses we are still not given our due credit as a golf destination. I recently played a few rounds at the course where I learned the game, Sycuan Resort. The course […]
Surfer Magazine just released their list of the ten best surf towns in America and San Diego’s Encinitas nabbed the number 3 spot. The serious surfers at Surfer loved Encinitas’ laid-back surf culture, the quality of life (from the climate to abundance of cute girls) and the proximity to all of San Diego’s other great surf […]
San Diego’s famed Surf Diva Surf School is the world’s number one surf school for women and I was lucky enough to brave the waters during a one-hour lesson. For me, this was a major step. I know I live in San Diego where surfing is like a form of breathing, but I’m from Nor […]
Every smart husband circles two dates on the calendar each year. Not the Super Bowl and your fantasy baseball draft, I’m talking about the smart husbands. Those two dates would be your wedding anniversary & your wife’s birthday, cavemen! I am usually pretty good at lining up great getaways and dinners, but this year I […]
The Japanese Friendship Garden provides a place of peace and contemplation in a familiar environment. There is a tremendous amount of thought behind creating and maintaining a venue of such simplicity. It is a deceptively secluded area of Balboa Park, with very little outside noise allowed in. In fact, it wasn’t until I left the garden that I was reminded of outside noises such as children and passing cars. There was a real feeling of back-to-the-real-world.
What is it about dolphins and other sea creatures that make us want to get in the water with them and give them love? Whatever it is, San Diego is fortunate to have a place where we can scratch that itch. Sea World’s variety of behind-the-scenes programs each have a cost above and beyond the price of admission, but talk about making memories for the family!
What can you expect to learn on a tour of a mere baseball stadium? A lot more than I expected, as it turns out. Walking around in the Padres’ house when the Padres aren’t home really emphasizes the vastness and versatility of the structure, which could easily double as a small city complete with restaurants, parks, museums and a sandy beach.
