Summertime fun in San Diego

We have clients and residents all over San Diego so we’re often asked about fun & interesting things to do. And, San Diego has been our home for over 25 years so we’ve found a few ways to have fun around town. San Diego offers every kind of activity imaginable but here are some of our favorite recommendations:

1. Balboa Park
A 1200 acre urban cultural park featuring museums, theatres & the famous San Diego Zoo.
Insider Tips: Purchase the One-Day Explorer– Admission to 5 museums for 1 day (Adult $45/Child $26). Tuesday Date Night at The Prado, 2 Entrees & a bottle of wine ($39.95 per couple).

2. Coronado’s Summer Concert Series

Insider Tips: Worth seeing at least once! Try avoiding the tourist restaurants if you can. Local fishermen vendors sell their catch of the day on the pier!

4. Torrey Pines State Reserve Hike
