Every December San Diego rolls out the red carpet for two deserving college football teams for the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl. Many of my favorite memories growing up a sports fan in San Diego were watching Holiday Bowl games. Players like Barry Sanders, Steve Young, and Jim McMahon have turned in memorable performances at these […]
We all know about one star that everybody comes to San Diego to enjoy (the sun, folks) but what about the billions of other stars that get virtually no play here in the city where there are too many lights at night to allow us to allow us access to the heavens? Here are two fun options for getting in some quality stargazing in San Diego.
Saturday I took advantage of the warm summer weather and got out to Salt Creek Golf Club. This great links-style course is nestled into the foothills of Chula Vista, a suburb about 25 minutes from Downtown San Diego. Golf for Normal People I love the fact that the course is a challenge, and it is […]
Last week I was lucky enough to attend Kona Kai Resort’s first luau of the summer. Having only experienced a luau in Hawaii when I was all of 11 years old, I had no idea what I was in for. Was I supposed to bring my own hula skirt? Did you have to eat the […]
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 […]

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 […]
