San Diego Favorites

It's no secret. San Diego is one of my favorite US cities. I grew up in Santa Barbara so the Cali-vibe is just in my blood. For a while, we went to San Diego every year for my birthday. The Arizona Diamondbacks (my baseball team) seemed to always play the San Diego Padres on my birthday weekend - so it was a nice excuse.  We've been a few times. Once with a baby. And here are a list of our favorite things to do...

Brickyard Coffee & Tea

This happened to be walking distance from our hotel one year so we checked it out. It was a cute little coffee house with a beautiful outdoor area to sit, eat, and drink your coffee. The weather is perfect in San Diego about 362 days out of the year, so you'll enjoy this area!

Ballast Point

Ok - anytime you can get Grapefruit Sculpin on draft, you do it! 'Nuf said.

Petco Park

This ballpark is one of my favorites. It's pretty, open, and clean! And who doesn't love baseball on a summer day?

Boat Cruise

We took a cruise around the North Harbor - the full is a little long for a baby or toddler. We've done the full tour and it's awesome. But with our baby (two months at the time) we did just the North Harbor and it was perfect! Such a fun way to soak in the city.

Hotel Del Coronado

If you want to feel like a balla, do it. We didn't stay there, but we drove in for the day and enjoyed the beach. With a baby, it's hard to enjoy the beach unless you have cover and a place to lay and relax. We rented the beach seats and it was worth it. We just relaxed, ordered food and drinks, and enjoyed the afternoon. Homegirl slept. Almost the entire time!
