Make a break for San Diego this weekend and enjoy these top things to do.
As a kid, I always found ice cream sodas or root beer floats to be odd. Soda with ice cream? Really? Who came up with that? But somehow the combination of a carbonated soft drink with a scoop of vanilla ice cream tasted delicious. Nowadays, it’s not very common to find root beer floats “floating” around the dessert menu, and even if I do see one, I usually tend to pick the fancied-up-gourmet dessert…after all, I am a grownup now.
I recently noticed floats were making a comeback, however, soda has been replaced with beer. Now, I know beer floats are not a new thing, but I noticed that bars and restaurants have not only added them to menus, but have added their own interpretations. Curious about the different options of beer floats available; I decided to invite a couple of friends on a Friday night to try different beer floats in what we named The Beer Float Roundup.
From movies by the pool to spectacular opening day at the Del Mar Racetrack hats to amazing sandcastles to a parade full of pride, there is a ton of family fun to be had this weekend in San Diego with all of these top things to do.
San Diego LGBT Pride celebrates its 40th anniversary this summer with a jam-packed schedule of activities and entertainment geared for all ages. The three-day weekend attracts nearly 300,000 participants that include visitors from all over the world, as the spirit of celebration descends upon the areas of Hillcrest and Balboa Park. Among its many sponsors, Alaska Airlines is offering 10 percent discounts on flights to San Diego between July 16 and 22 from most major cities.
As a working mom, I do want to spend lots of quality time with my kids when we’re on a family vacation, but I’ve found that adding half-day summer camps for the kids to a vacation itinerary when you visit San Diego can be a win-win for the entire family. Kids gets the chance to try out a new watersport, do stimulating science experiments or spend the day at an amusement park, and mom and dad get some time off, taking a break from parental duties to get in a yoga class or a long walk on the beach together. A morning half-day camp can make an afternoon of family time together more enjoyable. Most all of these summer camps have full day and early drop off/late pick up options as well.
Even though San Diego is known for its laid back and comfortable style, the region is home to plenty of upscale, luxury boutiques that will satisfy even the pickiest fashionista.
