Catch a San Diego sunset

Some have said San Diego have the most beautiful sunsets in the world, and from witnessing them first hand, I can tell you that this is most definitely true! For a view like no other, take a trip to Coronado and watch the sun go down from one of the many harbour eateries on this island. From your table you can snap away to your heart’s content as the sky is filled with a stunning mix of colours.

Visit Seaport Villagetop things to do in san diego

Opened in 1980, Seaport Village is a quaint part of San Diego featuring gift shops, restaurants and cafés. If you’re a breakfast person then head to Busters along the harbour.

Their menu has a host of mouth-watering breakfast options – all at reasonable prices too.

For those of you looking to kick back in the evening with something refreshing in hand, try Margaritas Kitchen & Cantina for some of the best Margaritas in town.

Take a ride in a Pedicab

No trip to San Diego would be complete without a ride in a Pedicab. These eco-friendly modes of transport can be used in two ways – as your taxi or as your tour guide. On some Pedicab’s, flashing lights and feel good music will accompany you during your trip. The perfect start to a night on the tiles!

Hop aboard a Naval Aircraft Carriertop things to do in san diego

One of San Diego’s most famous inhabitants, the USS Midway Museum is located in San Diego harbour.

Favourite Destination: My favourite USA destination has to be the West Coast. From theme park thrills and celebrity spotting in Los Angeles to walking the streets of San Francisco there’s so much to see and do. Cycle from Venice Beach to Malibu, shop on Rodeo Drive, enjoy the wine tasting rooms in the Funk Zone of Santa Barbara, be blown away be endless sea views on the Pacific Coast Highway. Choose to stop off in the small coastal towns of Pismo Beach and San Simeon, come inland for some antique shopping in Cambria or look for the hidden gem that is the Dutch town of Solvang. Catch a boat to Alcatraz, walk across the Golden Gate Bridge, have lunch in Sausalito or take in the sights on a hop on hop off bus tour! The West Coast won’t disappoint!
