Next time you visit the vibrant city of San Diego, indulge in some unique experiences that you can only find here. In fact, before even booking a cheap SAN hotel, take a moment to think about the one-of-a-kind things San Diego does better than anywhere else.
1. Craft Beer Tasting
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.
2. Growing Wildflowers
If you are in San Diego during spring, the drive to Carlsbad is worth the breathtaking sight. The Flower Fields of Carlsbad boast 50 acres of ranunculus flowers every spring. This unique attraction is a must-see for all nature lovers and makes for a very romantic (and cheap) date.
3. Ghost Tours
Believe it or not, San Diego has several nationally known haunted locales. You can explore the landmark Hotel del Coronado at night, cruise through the Whaley House in Old Town, drive down Proctor Valley Road, or take a guided ghost tour to learn more about the paranormal activities in the city.
4. Fish Tacos
San Diego restaurants and taco shops truly offer the best tasting fish tacos in the region, hands down. Check out a few local “Best of” lists to narrow down your search for the tastiest.
5. International Shopping
You can actually enjoy shopping in Mexico just by walking across the Mexican border and traveling to Tijuana from San Diego. The dollar goes further there and you can usually find some one-of-a-kind items. Apart from the quaint boutiques and craft stalls, you will also find a huge premium outlet just this side of the boarder.
6. Whale watching
Take a boat ride and watch giant gray whales migrate from December to April, and watch Blue whales migrate from mid-June through September. These giant creatures migrate from Alaska every year to spend time in the warm waters of San Diego and Baja. You can also watch them from land at the Cabrillo National Monument.
7. Food and Wine Festivals
Thanks to the accommodating weather, San Diego hosts food and wine festivals frequently throughout the year. The San Diego Food and Wine Festival is by far the biggest celebration, where festivalgoers enjoy sampling regional cuisine and wine, meeting celebrity chefs, and participating in workshops.
