This adventure took us South. All the way to San Diego. The hubby had a long weekend off work so we decided sorta spur-of-the-moment that we would make the long 7 hr drive on 4th of July weekend. San Diego is such a colorful city. We heard so many different languages as we passed people on the sidewalks. There was culture to be found wherever you go, making for a nice escape from reality for us. And the weather was INCREDIBLE! I mean, seriously! I can see why so many people enjoy living there.
We decided not to attempt the ever popular San Diego Zoo or SeaWorld due to it being a holiday weekend and the fact that the tickets cost a small fortune. We did a little researching and decided to hit Old Town San Diego, Seaport Village, Balboa Park and Imperial Beach. Old Town was like stepping back in time. It’s said to be the birthplace of California, making it a fun destination for history-buffs. Seaport Village is Downtown right on the water providing picturesque views and salty breezes. It’s a nice place to shop, dine, walk and people-watch (haha). Balboa Park is massive! It has something like 17 museums as well as other things, and is also home to the San Diego Zoo. The last stop was the beach, Imperial Beach to be exact. San Diego has several beaches actually, but we chose Imperial based on it’s proximity to shops and restaurants and it’s family-friendly atmosphere. All in all, we agreed San Diego was worth visiting again one day. Maybe when our little guy is older and able to enjoy more of what San Diego has to offer. Thanks for a fun and relaxing weekend, San Deigo!
