I am trying to update while I have more free time and I find myself with quite a bit during my spring break. Currently for the holiday, I am in San Diego, California “enduring” pleasant days of weather around 24 degrees celsius (72F) and blue, potently clear skies. This being our first full day in the city, we got situated at our hotel next to the San Diego Bay which had a view of downtown San Diego and some of the boat docks. There are many options in hotel accommodations in San Diego whether it be downtown or a few miles outside in nearby areas. However we chose to stay close to the Gaslamp Quarter which has great food, night life, and shops while also having a view of the water. Transportation in the downtown area of the city is easily accessible with bicycles, buses, or the light rail system. However for us, we wanted to explore areas a little farther out and thus opted for a rental car.
Our destinations for the first day of exploring was parts of downtown San Diego in the Historic Gaslamp Quarter and then heading out to the Sunset Cliffs to catch the sunset and some great local food for dinner. Information about our destination and restaurant are below.
Sunset Cliff: An area that is along the Pacific Ocean with dynamic cliffs and is a great place to bring family or a significant other to watch the sunset or have a picnic. It is also a popular area for people to get in a workout with a nice breeze to keep you cool. In the nearby area there are restaurants that are local to the Point Loma area. For the evening we came across Bo+Beau Kitchen + Bar, which is a french inspired restaurant that offers a plethora of options that include specials of the evening, sponsored weekly mealsmeals, and vegetarian/vegan options. With it being our first full day in San Diego we could not have ended on a better note; the ambiance, mixture of local and tourist people in the restaurant, and of course the food made the night a special one.
A district located only a few blocks over from the city’s convention center, it displays during the day a variety of local shops, restaurants, and bars that show the true character and history of the San Diego area. As for aesthetics, several of the buildings have been preserved to maintain the older design and look that people from San Diego love. This area has also become the place to be for the nightlife featuring a multitude of night club, music bars, and entertainment options. I found this area to be a great way to enjoy the night and get to know the vibe of the city. I have included hyperlinks that details more information.
