6 of San Diego’s Hidden Gems

TwitterFacebookEmailPrint

With an evolving craft beer community, innovative college students, and a young entrepreneurial population, San Diego is constantly growing, and new hot spots are popping up all the time. Check out some favorites from the Pacific Inn San Diego, where our staff members have a flair for finding the latest hip places to visit and dine. 

1. Edna and Alex Harper’s Hillside Topiary Garden
Frequently described as something out of Edward Scissorhands, this private garden features over 50 giant tree creatures in an environment that feels like a storybook. While the garden is located on the Harper family’s private residence, Edna and Alex welcome guests to enter for free, take photographs of the topiaries, and stroll the property.

2. Bankers Hill
This San Diego neighborhood is frequently passed over because of its reputation as an affluent residential area. For locals, however, Bankers Hill is a lovely place to stroll, with historical footbridges, like the Spruce Street suspension bridge or the Upas Street bridge, that take you through idyllic and scenic areas of San Diego.

3. Cinema Under the Stars
Cinema Under the Stars, located in Mission Hills, is a cute spot to see a film. At $15, the tickets are a bit more expensive than regular theaters, but the Looney Tunes cartoons before the film, combined with the gravity chair seating under outdoor heaters, and real views of the stars make the price worth it.

4. Noble Experiment 
If you’re looking for a blast from the past, check out Noble Experiment. Accessible through a secret door in a restaurant called Neighborhood located on G Street in downtown, this speakeasy is a salute to the Prohibition era. One of the best-kept secrets in San Diego, Noble Experiment exclusively serves high-end, traditional drinks in an old-timey atmosphere.

5. Oscar Wilde’s Irish Pub
Located in Hillcrest, this Irish pub stands out in the community for welcoming guests to lounge on their dog-friendly patio while munching on giant pretzels slathered with beer cheese. They offer a versatile selection of craft beer on tap with a happy hour that makes the prices extremely affordable.

6. The Secret Cave at Cabrillo National Monument
Cabrillo National Monument has a gorgeous location for hiking. With a hidden cave on the western side of the national monument that is unknown to most hikers, come here to escape the city and enjoy nature. The cave can only be accessed during low tide and is a great place to enjoy the natural beauty in San Diego.

If you’re looking for economical hotels near the Gaslamp Quarter so that you are close to these best-kept secrets, check out the Pacific Inn. We offer convenient, comfortable, and affordable lodging in San Diego. Give a Reservation Manager a call at 1-800-571-9233, or book your room online. We look forward to hearing from you!

 

Amp Up Your Adrenaline

Sure, you could spend your time in San Diego laying in the sun and listening to the waves crash. Or you could channel your inner adrenaline junkie and check out some of the thrilling activities the city has to offer. There are at least a dozen to choose from, but the staff at a friendly and affordable hotel downtown San Diego has selected 6 of the best.

1. Cliff Diving in La Jolla

Get a bird’s eye view of San Diego and feed your need for adventure at the same time by diving off the cliffs of La Jolla–attached to a hang glider, of course. You’re welcome to hang glide or paraglide with an instructor or go it alone if you’re experienced enough. While in the air, enjoy miles of gorgeous shoreline and the glamorous mansions of La Jolla.

2. Chill with Dolphins and Whales

Hop in an authentic, inflatable, low-profile Navy S.E.A.L boat and get up close and personal with the playful dolphins and magnificent whales (depending on the season) that call the waters off the San Diego coast home. A U.S. Coast Guard-licensed captain will fill you in on all the wildlife that happens to be in your line of view.

3. Swim—Cage-Free–with the Really Big Fishes

Get chummy with sharks without a cage. “Mako Mike” offers shark diving expeditions that literally put you eye-to-eye with the feisty creatures. Mike safely handles the sharks while you snorkel or free-dive.

4. Extreme Circus Flying

If you want to kick your fear of heights while having lots of fun, make your way to Trapeze High. The friendly instructors cater the tricks they teach to your abilities and comfort level. Be warned though, you could very easily become addicted to the highflying fun you’ll experience here.

5. Discover Your Inner Marty McFly

While Back to the Future’s hoverboards have yet to become reality, you can come close to the experience thanks to some heavy-duty waterpower. You can’t go shimmying across San Diego’s sidewalks. However, you do get to check out the view from 30 feet in the air when on a water-powered Flyboard or Hoverboard.

6. Kayak the Caves of La Jolla

Nestled within a 75 million-year-old sandstone sea cliff, the seven sea caves of La Jolla are a breathtaking sight to see, especially if you’re in a kayak. You’ll be safely guided through the waters in and around the caves (weather permitting) and introduced to sea lions, leopard sharks, dolphins and other regional delights along the way. You can also do some snorkeling or rent a kayak and do a little kayak fishing.

Whether you’re seeking thrill after thrill or hours of relaxation, one thing is for sure. You’ll want to rest and recharge in a comfortable hotel room with a convenient location. Don’t hesitate to book a hotel near the SAN airport like the Pacific Inn Hotel & Suites. We’re near all the major attractions, offer all the comforts of home, and have some great ongoing discounts. Find out more by calling 1-800-571-2933 to reserve your room today!

7 Cool Places to Take Pictures in San Diego

TwitterFacebookEmailPrint

Spend some time at the touristy locales like Balboa Park, downtown, and Coronado, and then head out to find the hidden treasures that make for standout pictures. To make it a little easier for out-of-towners, the San Diego Point Loma Inn & Suites has put together a list of our favorite off-the-beaten-path photo ops.

1. Harper’s Topiary Garden
Tucked away in Mission Hills, this zany garden is truly a treat for the eyes. Artist Edna Harper keeps over 50 topiary sculptures in this space, ranging from whimsical animals to shrubbery replications of famous landmarks.

2. Chula Vista Salt Mounds
Visitors in San Diego might not know that they are in prime salt production territory. However, these enormous, glacier-like mounds of salt extracted from the ocean will quickly dispel any doubt.

3. Hidden Cemetery
In 1889, a streetcar line was built over a small city cemetery in what is now Old Town. City planners didn’t discover what lies beneath this patch of street until 1993 and has since placed tiny markers on the paved ground denoting each gravesite.

4. The Mushroom Beach House
Black’s Beach is home to the inimitable mushroom-shaped beach house, constructed in 1986 as the guesthouse for a seafront residence. With cliffs to one side and the ocean to the other, this futuristic hut looks a bit like a James Bond villain’s lair.

5. Heritage Park Victorian Village
Just outside of Old Town lies a picturesque cul-de-sac of old Victorian mansions. Pay them a visit for some gorgeous antique architecture and sweeping views of the city.

6. The Jail Cell at The Headquarters at Seaport
Patrons of this bustling complex might not know that they’re shopping in a former jail. Head to the hallway between Madison Leather and Kitson Boutique to take a picture in one of the few preserved cells.

7. Banker’s Hill Footbridges
Before the days of modern infrastructure, engineers linked San Diego’s neighborhoods by spanning the city’s canyons with footbridges. Head to Banker’s Hill for some fine vertigo-inducing examples and great views of downtown.

A great way to make sure you see all the city has to offer is by booking a centrally located cheap San Diego Convention Center hotel like the Point Loma Inn. We’re close to restaurants, great sights, and plenty of things to do. You can even save 15% just by booking in advance! Give us a call at 1-800-571-2933 to learn more and reserve your room!

Top Spots for Surfing in San Diego

Where to Surf in San Diego

Undoubtedly, you plan to spend at least a little time at the beach while visiting San Diego. Whether you’re a seasoned surfer happy to visit some new waves or just getting your feet wet (pun intended), here are a few of San Diego’s top surf spots.

La Jolla Shores

With protection from the southwest winds, this surfing location is safe for beginners and families. Should you prefer your surf with a little more kick, head down the road to Marine Street Beach for a killer break, known locally as “womp,” or Windansea Beach, which has powerful waves due to steep ocean floor slopes.

Nearby: Walking trails, formal surfing schools

Ocean Beach Pier

Regardless of how skilled you are when it comes to surfing, you’ll be welcomed at this beach, just 10 or so minutes from several cheap SDCC hotels. Waves tend to fluctuate enough for everyone to get their surf on, from beginners to those more accustomed to riding some serious waves.

Nearby: A great burger place, a cafe, an ice cream shop, and board shops

Sunset Cliffs

First things first–you’ll need to be an experienced shredder if you want to hang ten here. The surf tends to pound the rocks hard, but it’s a thrill if you know what you’re doing. It’ll take some time to get to know the breaks within the coves here, but that’s part of the fun.

Nearby: Nothing but parkland and residential homes

Del Mar

You’ll run into a decent mix of surf conditions along the area between Dog Beach and 15th Street, and there’s plenty of room for all skill levels here. On hot summer days, you’ll have no trouble finding the prime surfing spots along the Del Mar shore since the adjacent beaches are usually deserted. Del Mar is about 20 to 25 minutes north of most hotels in downtown San Diego, so if you head up to surf consider making a day of it and exploring the quaint, and ritzy, neighborhood.

Nearby: Restaurants (a bit pricy, but great views), a surfing school offering private lessons, and some local boutiques

Mission/Pacific Beach

The main surfing spot here is between the Mission Bay Jetty and Crystal Pier. The surf isn’t spectacular, but you’ll find some good peaks here and there. You’ll also find some decent swells and breaks during the winter months when the crowds are gone.

Nearby: Belmont Park, PB Shore Club, board shops, sportswear shops, bars, nightclubs, and restaurants

Imperial Beach Pier

This surfing spot, also a prime fishing destination when the waters are calm, offers a nice combination of mid-to-high tides. Surf cams on the pier allow you to check conditions before grabbing your board.

Nearby: An RV resort, free parking (mid-week), an ice cream shop, a t-shirt place, and restaurants

Heading to surf in San Diego? Book a hotel room near the SAN airport at the Pacific Inn and you’ll have plenty of room to store your board. You’ll also be able to take advantage of booking discounts and our great low rates. Oh, and we offer free Wi-Fi, fresh coffee 24/7, premium cable channels, flexible dates, 24/7 customer service, and we won’t charge your card until you check in. Interested in inquiring about availability? Call a friendly Reservation Manager at 1-800-571-2933 who can help you out!

Where to Go Wine Tasting in Baja

TwitterFacebookEmailPrint

Top Spots for Wine Tasting in Baja California

If you’re in San Diego for any length of time and love wine, you may want to venture further afield to the Baja peninsula in Mexico, less than an hour to the south of San Diego. There, the Guadalupe Valley (Valle de Guadalupe) is a prime wine-producing region with over 100 wineries and bottles that rival California’s Central Coast. Leading San Diego Airport hotel, Pacific Inn Hotel & Suites, suggests the following wineries.

Vinas de Garza, Rancho Mogorcito

Towards the middle of Route 3 that runs between Ensenada and Tecate, you’ll find Rancho Mogorcito, where Vinas de Garza offers a stunning wine tasting experience with the flavor of true Mexico. While only in business since 2003, the Garza winery has become a top destination on the Ruta del Vino in Baja. While well known for their wide selection of flavorful red blends, they also offer a white blend and a Chardonnay. No reservations are required for groups less than eight people, and a flight will set you back just $8-12.

Bibayoff Vinos, Rancho Toros Pintos

When you first see the classic onion domes on the sign for Bibayoff, you may be tempted to think, “What? Russian wines?” But while the Bibayoff winery has technically only been in business since 1992, the family has been growing grapes in the region for over a half century. The winery is run by descendants of Russian immigrants and the tasting room reflects a funky mix of Russian art and rustic Mexican thrifty chic. Bibayoff offers a couple of signature wines: a Chenin Blanc/Columbard/Muscat blend and a Nebbiolo that is a perennial favorite. Their romantic tasting room is open Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-4pm and pricing varies.

Adobe Guadalupe, El Porvenir

While LA Cetto and Santo Thomas have the biggest commercial business, Adobe Guadalupe is making a name for itself with serious oenophiles and gourmet chefs across Mexico and Southern California. Not only do they grow their own grapes, but they raise Azteca horses and run a gorgeous, serene inn as well. The wines, tasted in a brick room adjoining the barrels, are all named for angels, and they are truly heavenly, particularly the red blends. Tastings are available with tour by reservation most days of the week, or without a reservation (minus the tour) for about $10.

Emeve, El Porvenir

Just up the road from Adobe Guadalupe, Emeve offers a perfect counterpoint from the same wine maker. There, you can sit on their little stone patio and gaze out at the vineyards or cluster around their indoor bar to learn about their one-of-a-kind Viogniers, Grenache and red blends, including their signature Los Nietos. Bring your own snack or enjoy their special cheese covered in a charred pepper crust, which stands up nicely to their full-bodied wines. Their schedule changes with the seasons, so check ahead for tasting hours. Three full pours can be had in their flights for about $12, and you can pick from a variety of combinations.

It’s best to plan on paying with cash in Baja, and businesses there all accept both pesos and American dollars. You can enter Mexico at a number of points, but to get to the Guadalupe Valley, it may be easiest to cross at Tecate and follow the signs to Ensenda once in Mexico. Once on the road to Ensenada, you’ll see plenty of signage to the Ruta del Vino. If you don’t want to drive yourself, there are frequent wine tasting tours by bus from San Diego. Just don’t forget to bring your passport to re-enter the US.

Ready for a little adventure? Book a room at the San Diego Pacific Inn Hotel & Suites and get your trip started. As a guest of our hotel, you will enjoy a comfortable and spacious room, premium cable channels, and the best rate around—guaranteed!

San Diego is home to 90 craft breweries—yes, 90–which surely makes it a destination for all beer lovers. Come and explore as many as you can by taking a brewery tour and sampling delicious local beers.

Your Survival Guide to Spring Break in San Diego

TwitterFacebookEmailPrint

What to Do for Spring Break in San Diego

One of the best locations to enjoy spring break in the country is, without a doubt, San Diego. This beautiful city boasts warm temperatures year-round, spectacular views, and tons of bars for the 21+ crowd. Make the most of your spring break with the following tips.

Book a Cheap Hotel

Save money during spring break by staying in one of the inexpensive hotels in Little Italy or near the airport. You won’t be spending a ton of time in your room and these locations are ideal for spring breakers splitting their time between the beach and downtown.

Visit the Beach at Night

Instead of fighting the crowds at the beach during the day, opt for enjoying the beach at night by making a bonfire and roasting some s’mores. Out-of-towners don’t always know the do’s and don’ts of fire pits and bonfires on local beaches. If you need help, there’s actually a local dude who will set it up, take it down, and dispose of the ashes for a small fee.

Enjoy Rooftop Views

One of the best-kept secrets in San Diego is the number of awesome rooftop views around town. If you’re looking for a place to stay near the Gaslamp Quarter, chances are you won’t be more than a few minutes from rooftop bars and pools. As the weather begins to warm (you know, from 60 to 70), keep a look out regular pool parties that happen every weekend from April-ish to September-ish.

Don’t Forget Sweaters  

San Diego has an average temperature of 70.5 degrees each day, making it comfortable during the day but a little cool at night. Your trip as a whole will be more enjoyable if you throw in a sweater or two along with your shorts, t-shirts, and sandals.

Start Your Day with Coffee

There are dozens of charming locations to grab a cup of coffee in the morning like Zumbar Coffee & Tea, Lion Coffee, or Cafe Bassam if you’re in the mood for an iced Vietnamese drink. Sample the local brews and find a favorite to revisit next time you’re in town.

Speaking of coffee, if you haven’t booked a hotel yet for spring break the Pacific Inn, a cheap San Diego hotel downtown, offers free fresh coffee served 24/7. We also offer flexible dates, 24/7 customer service, and the best rates you’ll find around town. Give us a call today at 1-800-571-2933 to inquire about availability!

Haunted San Diego

TwitterFacebookEmailPrint

Haunted Places in San Diego

As the second largest city in California, San Diego doesn’t want for beautiful and interesting tourist attractions. However, those looking for something a little more off-the-beaten-path often flock to San Diego’s many famously haunted locales. A tour of this city’s ghostly history will take you from classic haunted mansions to spooky goblin forests. Catch a thrill and learn firsthand about the history of San Diego at these haunted historical locations handpicked by the chill-seeking staff at the Pacific Inn, a comfortable and cheap Little Italy hotel.

Proctor Valley Road

This long and lonely dirt road takes you from Chula Vista to Jamul, and through some of the most haunted territory in California. For over a century this stretch of road has been home to many bleak stories of murder and madness, as well as rumors of a huge ape-like creature that leaves behind mysterious footprints. Occurrences on this road include everything from unexplained engine troubles to spectral hitchhikers.

William Heath Davis House

Just around the corner from several cheap Gaslamp Quarter hotels, you will find the William Heath Davis House. Constructed in 1850, this historic house is the oldest standing structure in downtown San Diego. Although the home was built by William Heath Davis as a family house, he never lived there and died in poverty. Today the house is a historic museum, and many visitors have reported seeing the ghost of a Victorian woman who supposedly haunts the building. A newspaper article in 1977 detailed the strange occurrence of lights flickering on and off during a time when the house still had no electricity and the lamps required a match to light.

San Pasqual Indian Cemetery

Located near the archaeological museum, this historical cemetery dates back to the earliest European invasions of the San Pasqual Valley. This highly traditional graveyard is rumored to be the resting place of the daughter of the last chieftain of the San Pasqual Indians, who lived to see the end of her people. The site is still cared for according to native tradition.

Questhaven Retreat and the Elfin Forest

This nature preserve and spiritual retreat has long been rumored to be the site of a mental hospital that burned down. Records confirm that the founder of the retreat did once house mental patients in a part of the retreat that burned down, and paranormal occurrences in the retreat and the adjacent Elfin Forest are frequently reported. The Elfin Forest is also the site of both modern and ancient ruins, and rich with psychic energy.

Mt. Woodson Castle

This bizarre house was designed and built by an eccentric and artistic woman named Irene Amy Strong, and completed in 1921 at the height of the Craftsman movement. The unique 27-room house has been associated with the occult ever since its completion, and has many ghostly rumors surrounding it, including being haunted by the creative spirit of Irene herself.

If you think you’re brave enough for a ghastly tour of San Diego, don’t hesitate to reserve your room at the Pacific Inn Hotel & Suites (don’t worry, no ghost sightings here). Those spooky spots might scare you, but our low rates, easy booking, and flexible dates won’t!
