It’s here…the first weekend of summer! That means it’s time for body surfing at the beach, hiking through to mountains, cycling along the boardwalks, bonfires in the evening and these top things to do in San Diego:
Pack up the board shorts, bikinis and beach towels and head to San Diego because it’s time for an unofficial Summer weekend (real summer starts on June 21)! The warmer weather means plenty of outdoor activities, festivals, music, food and these top things to do…
This May, San Diego’s theatre line-up reads like the cover of a tabloid magazine with the promise of love, death and intrigue. From the fresh retelling of Shakespeare’s classic, Romeo and Juliet, to the stage version of the 1940’s movie, His Girl Friday, May is a great time to get into the gossip and head out to one of San Diego’s top theatres.
Does your weekly viewing of Mad Men leave you longing for those golden days of three-martini lunches and flawlessly coifed hair? Do you scour vintage shops for the perfect pair of wingtips? Then hop in your ’67 Cadillac and drive down to San Diego’s Mission Valley, where you don’t need a time machine to travel back to the 1960s.
There’s no faux-vintage here – this is the real deal! Some of San Diego’s most timeless dinner joints are tucked unassumingly into the narrow enclave just off the freeway, waiting to be discovered by savvy visitors. Better bring your appetite for a good steak along with a good time, because classic dining is what Mission Valley does best.
Sunglasses, check! Flip flops, check! Sunscreen, check! Camera, double check! Whether you’re bringing the family to San Diego for the first time, or returning for another round of fun, there are lots of iconic family photo spots to capture special moments and to enjoy for years to come. We’re talking one-of-kind San Diego-centric places you’ll want to remember forever – beautiful sandy white beaches, feeding the dolphins at SeaWorld, standing next to an F/A-18 Hornet on the flight deck of the USS Midway Museum, or getting up close to Mary, a 9,000 pound elephant also known as “the boss lady” at the San Diego Zoo.
With so many of the nation’s best photo ops in one place, how do you find them all? If you like walking tours, Snap Photo Tours can take you to some of San Diego’s top places to photograph including Balboa Park, the Gaslamp Quarter and Coronado. Not only will you learn about the history of these places, but they’ll teach you how to get better shots with your camera. Or you can try San Diego Photography Tours. They offer walking and shuttle tours of hidden gems in San Diego with experienced professional photographers who know the best vantage points and best time of day for the best shots.
But sometimes, the most memorable family photos are captured when you strike out on your own, with kids in tow and a smart phone camera in hand.
Escape to San Diego for the first weekend of Spring and bask in the warm sunshine while enjoying these fun top things to do!
