San Diego offers a long list of activities that make it easy to enjoy the sunshine and outdoors whether you’re a local or just visiting. That means, when you visit, don’t stay cooped up in your hotel near San Diego Airport. Even if you only have one free day, that’s all the more reason to get out and immerse yourself in San Diego’s natural beauty. Unsure what to do? Try one of these fun outside activities.
Riding Bikes in Coronado
Coronado is known for its quaint and cozy neighborhoods that offer a nostalgic feel from the 1950s. Explore the area by riding a tandem or 4-person surrey bike and stopping along the bay and beach. You can grab lunch at one of the local diners, take a tour of the Hotel Del, or gawk at the mansions lining the streets closets to the beach. Bike rentals are available on the island for an average of $15 per hour.
Fishing on the Pier
For a great way to lounge, fish off one of the several piers in San Diego like the Ocean Beach Pier or Embarcadero Marina Park Pier. You don’t need a fishing license for the OB Pier, but the Embarcadero Pier is walking distance from several hotels near San Diego Convention Center.
Eating S’mores on the Beach
When you’ve finished surfing the waves or lying out on the warm sand, you can enjoy a bonfire during sunset. Many people prefer to end a day at the beach by roasting marshmallows over the open fire as a delicious end to a perfect day. Fire pits are scattered throughout the bay and beach areas, and there is also a local 1-man company that will set up a bonfire, provide supplies, and do the cleanup for a small fee.
To experience a bit of adventure on the water, spend the day sailing. Enjoy spectacular views and possibly see dolphins or whales (depending on the time of year) swim by. Several San Diego companies offer sailing tours like day sails, sunset sails, and whale watching. Keep in mind sailing doesn’t come cheap. Prepare to spend $80 and up per person.
