Things to Experience in San Diego

Your first visit to San Diego can be overwhelming when attempting to decide amongst all the possibilities of things to do. Planning your trip can be quite time consuming and this is where we can help. Here are the top 8 things you must experience while in San Diego:

1. Hitting the beach.

No matter when you visit, the beach is one spot that personifies the complete San Diego lifestyle. Whether you’re watching the tide come in or soaking in the sun, the beach is where the action is. From Mission Beach to the Belmont Park rollercoaster - make sure you hit the beaches here.

2. Trying a fish taco.

Although it may sound a little awkward, the fish taco is one of the yummiest foods in San Diego. Deep fried, battered fish, encased in a corn tortilla is one of the foods that once you try - you'll want it anytime you come back!

3. Going to Mexico.

Everyone knows that San Diego borders Mexico, with Tijuana being a metropolis in its own right. Visiting Tijuana or Baja Mexico is perfectly secure day or night, no matter what you have been told. Keep in mind that they have their own laws, to bring your passport, and then experience everything that this foreign paradise will provide you with.

4. Take a ride on the trolley.

San Diego doesn't have the top public transit system, yet they do have the well known trolley. The highways here can be fairly intimidating, making the trolley the ideal way to travel. If you want to learn more about the city, just buy an all-day trolley pass - you'll see more of San Diego this way than you ever thought possible.

5. Visiting the Pandas.

While Sea World and Legoland have their share of animals, the San Diego zoo is notorious for its Pandas. The zoo is a tourist attraction, with the baby Su Lin, which is really a site to see. When you visit the San Diego Zoo, visit in the morning - when the pandas are most active.

6. Balboa Park.

After you see the pandas, take a trip to the gem of the city - Balboa Park. The atmosphere is amazing here, no matter when you visit. However, if you visit on Tuesdays you'll find that most museums have free admission. After you visit a while, dine at the Prado Restauraunt and experience wonderful food in a great setting.

7. Gaslamp and the nightlife.

The Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego is the place to be for dancing, eating, or simply people watching. You can experience the best of life in San Diego here, with food and fun to fit every unique taste.

8. The Old Town.

While historical San Diego isn't always apparent, a visit to the Old Town State Historic Park can bring back the past. There are pieces of Old San Diego found everywhere you look here. Although there are many fine restaurants here, make sure you visit the Old Town Mexican Cafe, as it serves the best Mexican food around San Diego.
