Free Things to Do in San Diego


Do you want a vacation, but don’t want to spend a lot? With excellent yearlong weather and quick and easy access to beaches, historical landmarks and tourist attractions, San Diego is a great place to explore without spending a lot of money. In fact, you can enjoy much of San Diego for free.  When visiting San Diego, stay within your budget by taking advantage of the great rates, discounted theme park tickets and free amenities such as parking and wireless internet offered by the affordable Pacific Inn in Downtown San Diego.

One free activity that you can participate in during your vacation is visiting the beaches. San Diego offers many wonderful beaches that locals and tourists come to visit. These beaches will give you the full “fun in the sun” experience offering great hiking trails, bike paths, tide pools, snorkeling and kayaking. Those who stay at a hotel near the beaches can also enjoy nearby attractions including Belmont Park, Torrey Pines Golf Course, La Jolla Cove and the Hotel Del.

If beaches are not your taste, a drive east will take you to the mountains and desert. Visit the old-fashioned, quaint town of Julian, located in the local mountains and enjoy some homemade apple pie. In the spring, head out to the dessert and see the blooming wildflowers. For great hiking, visit Mount Laguna, Iron Mountain or Cowles Mountain.

San Diego is also home to many sight-seeing attractions that don’t cost a dime. Old Town gives you a taste of San Diego’s rich Spanish history. Beautiful landscape and architecture can be seen at Balboa Park. The Cabrillo National Monument and Fort Rosecrans Cemetery offers stunning views of the San Diego’s downtown skyline. Walk along Seaport Village and the Big Bay located along San Diego’s downtown waterfront. In addition, when staying at a hotel near the harbor, you can walk visit the USS Midway and the Star of India ships.
