San Diego, California is a gorgeous place to visit. Whether you take a quick trip from Los Angeles or come from out of state San Diego has a lot to see and do.
Itinerary for a 2 day, one night stay:
1:05pm: Catch an afternoon Padres Game at Petco Park in the heart of downtown. Although I am a die hard San Francisco Giants fan, Petco Park might be my favorite ballpark. They have a huge grass field just behind the outfield and you can buy $5-$15 tickets (depending on the game) and throw a picnic. They even have a mini baseball diamond for the young ones to play.
5:00pm: Check-in to the hotel, maybe enjoy a quick nap before heading back out for night festivities. I'd highly recommend the Bristol Hotel - they were in a very central location, walking distance from everything and a great price.
7:30pm: Head out in Gaslamp for a nice dinner, drinks and dancing.
They have incredible food and a great mimosa brunch deal.
San Diego is also home to a lot of street art fairs. Before heading home check what's happening around an go for a quick walk through the streets of a fair or walk on the beach to complete your San Diego experience.
