The Coronado Flower Show: A Delight for All Ages

TwitterFacebookEmailPrint

Coronado Flower Show 2014

The annual Coronado Flower Show is California’s premier flower show, and the largest tent flower show in the nation. The flower show takes up almost an entire city block including flower exhibits, a wine and beer garden, and live music performances scheduled throughout the day. If you’re staying at one of the downtown San Diego hotels this weekend and are looking for affordable fun this weekend, this is an event you don’t want to miss. Not only is it open to the public, admission is only $5 per person!

A beloved community tradition for more than eight decades, the Coronado Flower Show is a true piece of Americana. When the flower show first began in 1922, the local schools provided desks and typewriters for judging, the now famous Hotel Del lent trellises and tables, and the local Boy Scouts camped out in the park overnight to protect the exhibits, ensuring all were safe for the day of the show.

Today the Coronado Flower Show has come a long way, expanding in size and offering opportunities for professionals and community members alike to showcase their talents. In the weeks before the show, approximately 120 local volunteers judge entrees throughout the city, evaluating gardens and floral arrangements at commercial fronts, churches and school gardens, and at more than 6,000 individual homes.

Exhibitors at the two-day weekend event can enter a large selection of flower-related divisions, including holiday themed events, miniature arrangement section, themed design arrangements of cut flowers, tabletop designs including formal and informal table settings, and the very popular “Zoo’s Who” division which features whimsical animals created from fruits and vegetables. There are fresh cut flower divisions for roses, orchids, and hanging plants, and even sections for cacti and bonsai. Even children can join in the green-thumb-fun by entering the children’s competition for small floral arrangements and seed plate designs.

Join in this beloved community tradition on Saturday, April 26th from 1pm to 5pm and on Sunday, April 27th from 10am to 4pm. And if you don’t have accommodations set up already, it’s not too late! Skip the expensive hotels in Coronado and check out some of the more budget-friendly hotels near San Diego Convention Center. This way, you’ll have access to the entire city at night, and can easily travel to the show via the affordable ferry boat which is $5 per person.

For upcoming hotel rates and reservations, contact the Pacific Inn at 1-800-571-2933. We are one of the more affordable hotels near San Diego Airport, conveniently placing visitors in close proximity to downtown’s top destinations including Little Italy, Balboa Park and the Gaslamp Quarter.

San Diego’s Best Beachfront Bars

TwitterFacebookEmailPrint

San Diego Beach Bars

There’s nothing better than sipping a cool drink as the sun slides behind the palm trees and turns the sky into a postcard sunset as it sinks into the Pacific. Fortunately, San Diego offers many opportunities to enjoy a relaxing evening with breathtaking ocean views paired with local brews and craft cocktails. Should you ask the locals about the best places to go for such a sublime experience, these are the first 5 that they’ll recommend.

Cannon Ball
3105 Ocean Front Walk
San Diego, CA 92109

Cannon Ball is known for its laid back atmosphere and prime location for stunning sunsets, especially from restaurant’s rooftop bar. The bar’s location not far from downtown San Diego and its upscale atmosphere makes it a great spot for business travelers, as well as those in town for a convention. While the menu is varied, the full service sushi bar is sure to grab your attention with freshly prepared rolls and sashimi plates. Craft beers can also be had for $6, as well as specialty drinks and cocktails for $10. If you’re looking to try out Cannon Ball, learn more about affordable hotels near the SDCC and Mission Beach.

Sandbar Grill
718 Ventura Place
San Diego, CA 92109

This sports bar couldn’t possibly have better real estate. Located on the oceanfront just steps from Belmont Park, Sandbar is open from 9am to 2am daily and serves an excellent breakfast. The TVs are great for catching a game, and there’s always a spectacular view of the beach if things go South for the home team. The laid back sports like atmosphere also makes it among the favorites for those staying at nearby San Diego MCRD hotels. Stopping for a bite to eat? The bar’s fish tacos come highly recommended and the selection of draft beers is superb. Save a few bucks by hitting up the happy hour specials from 4pm to 7pm every weekday.

The Green Flash
701 Thomas Avenue
San Diego, CA 92109

The patio sits directly on the beach, making the Green Flash a top beach bar in San Diego. And what’s better – it’s as great of a place for drinks as it is for breakfast the next morning. If you’re working your way down the Pacific Beach, the Green Flash is the perfect place to stop for a quick meal. While all of the specialty drinks are delicious, they are known for their bloody mary. The tab can add up quickly if you’re not careful, but you get your money’s worth in scenery and service.

710 Beach Club
710 Garnet Avenue
San Diego, CA 92109

If you’re looking for oceanfront entertainment, there’s no better place to go than the 710 Beach Club. This place has everything. Live music, dancing, karaoke, open mics, trivia nights, Monday Night Football parties. Everything. The prices are good too, with drink specials available every day of the week. The only caveat – nominal cover charges on weekend evenings or when live bands are playing.

PB Shore Club
4343 Ocean Boulevard
San Diego, CA 92109

Popular music? Check. Beachfront location? Check. Wednesday night goldfish races? Double check (and watch out, these can get competitive). While the place can get crowded at night, it isn’t overwhelming. The clientele does tend to be younger, though. Case in point – the most popular drink in the house is the RedBull Vodka Slushie. However, before 8pm, the food gets rave reviews from people of all ages.

As you can see, there are a wide variety of options available for everyone looking to spend a San Diego evening on the Beach. Whether you’re looking for a great place for lunch or a nighttime, beachside hotspot, you’ll find some in the heart of San Diego.

We are one of the preferred cheap hotels in downtown San Diego offering low nightly rates and spacious and clean rooms and suites.

Downtown San Diego 1 Day Itinerary

If you’re spending any time in San Diego or will have the opportunity to stop by during a Southern California vacation, the downtown district is a must visit destination. Downtown San Diego mixes historic charm with new and modern construction for a city feel unlike any other. While some visitors are fortunate enough to spend days or more in the city, we understand that others may be on a tight schedule. If this is the case, here is the ideal one day itinerary for exploring the popular downtown district, presented by the Pacific Inn hotel in downtown San Diego. It might take a bit of hopping around, but it will sure be worth the hustle!

  • 8am – Start the morning off early with breakfast at one of the city’s many great eateries. The famous Hash House A Go Go is known for their farm-chic atmosphere and unbelievably large portions of your favorite morning meals. For a more “whimsical” take on breakfast, Snooze Eatery is your best option, or you could go with classic downtown favorite like Richard Walker’s Pancake House.
  • 10am to 1pm – Work off your morning breakfast by exploring Balboa Park. There are more than a dozen museums nestled among the park rounds including the famous San Diego Museum of Man and the San Diego Air & Space Museum. Check out the list at the visitor’s center and see which museums you’d like to visit and pair them with the admission package that works best. This way you can save and enjoy!
  • 1:30pm to 4pm – Next, head along the coast to nearby Seaport Village, which is the ideal destination or a light lunch at one of the quaint waterfront cafes. Whether you’re in the mood for Italian, Greek or American, you’ll find plenty of dining options. After, stroll along the waterfront, watch a street performance and check out the area’s boutiques for a few souvenirs to take home.
  • 4pm to 6pm – Continue the coastal theme of the afternoon and head over to the Maritime Museum of San Diego and the USS Midway. Select which one interests you the most and tour the large vessels for a look into the history of military life in San Diego. You are sure to be amazed by the resident ships and countless historical exhibits.
  • 7pm to 9pm – While you might think you’ve had plenty to eat, dinner is by far the best meal of the day in San Diego. First, know that you’re going to have difficulty choosing because the options are endless. For classic Italian fare, head to Little Italy and stroll the streets. One of the top restaurants near our affordable Little Italy hotel in San Diego is Isola Pizza Bar, which offers classic pizzas and pastas at affordable prices.
  • 9pm to ? – Even after a long day, the nightlife of downtown San Diego is too great to pass up. As you stroll through the Gaslight quarter, you will have the opportunity to check out many of the quarter’s great nightclubs, bars and pubs. Also, don’t forget to stop by one of San Diego’s signature rooftop bars for a cocktail and a bit of relaxing with the beautiful San Diego skyline in the backdrop.

As you might have noticed the above itinerary doesn’t include a trip to the San Diego Zoo. While it is a top attraction and one that we do find worth going to, it takes a good majority of the day to explore the parks 100 acre lot. Therefore, we suggest staying at one of the cheap San Diego Zoo hotels in the area so you can stop at the zoo the next morning before heading out to your next vacation destination.

Free San Diego Family Activities

Planning a family vacation can get expensive very quickly if you don’t take the time to look for affordable family-friendly activities that you’ll all enjoy during your time in San Diego.

Visiting San Diego on an International Budget

TwitterFacebookEmailPrint

Travel to San Diego from Overseas

If you’re traveling to San Diego from outside of the U.S., there are many ways that you can save money before you arrive at this waterfront paradise. The following are a few suggestions for international visitors to San Diego on how to get the most out of their travel dollars.

  1. Shop around for a cheap airfare online – Although San Diego is home to an international airport that is gaining popularity, flights directly into SAN are typically more expensive than those landing at the nearby Los Angeles International Airport. If you have time to make a pit-stop during your travels, look for flights into LAX, spend a day exploring the area, and get a cheap rental car to drive to San Diego. Whether you’re traveling alone or with your family, driving from Los Angeles could provide considerable savings.
  2. Make hotel reservations early – If you’re looking for a hotel in the middle of all the action, you’ll want to make hotel reservations as early as possible, especially if you’re traveling during the peak spring and summer seasons. Hotels like the Pacific Inn in downtown San Diego are great options for international visitors with cheap nightly rates and spacious accommodations. Learn more about cheap inns in downtown San Diego for tourists.
  3. Make advance reservations or opt for public transportation – Once you’ve landed, of course you’ll want to see the sights! Fortunately, you have plenty of options for transportation. Check for cheap rates via online websites prior to your flight and reserve a car for the length of your stay. Many of the rental offices are near the airport, and you can usually take advantage of the free airport shuttle to get there. You can also take advantage of the all-day passes for the San Diego trolley, which makes stops at key tourist spots for just $5 per day if you’re really looking to save. Click here for more information about centrally located and cheap hotels near San Diego Airport.
  4. Eat like a local to enjoy additional savings – When booking your hotel, try to find one that offers a complimentary continental breakfast for its guests every morning. When it comes to lunch and snacks, taquerias and Mexican food trucks are widespread around San Diego, where you can frequently find a very tasty and filling meal for well under $5 a day. If possible, try to coordinate your visit to San Diego during the twice-annual Restaurant Week, where local restaurants offer affordable fixed-price menus so that locals and tourists alike can step outside of their culinary comfort zones.

The Pacific Inn welcomes international travelers! If you are visiting San Diego from another country, be sure to call the Pacific Inn at 1-800-571-2933 and learn more about our affordable hotel near SeaWorld, Little Italy, Gaslamp Quarter, San Diego Zoo and other popular San Diego attractions.

San Diego’s Top Hipster Bars

TwitterFacebookEmailPrint

San Diego Hipster Bars

What is a vacation to San Diego if you don’t experience the vibrant, trendy and laid back San Diego hipster scene? A hipster is typically someone in their 20s and 30s who follows the latest trends. Urban Dictionary describes a hipster as someone who shuns “mainstream societal conventions “ and values “independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter.”

The word “hipster” has made a strong comeback in the last few years. During the 1950s it was used to refer to someone who isolated themselves while wallowing alone with soulful jazz music. This dated definition applies to much of what we know about hipsters today. A modern day hipster will usually be found sporting some form of facial hair –preferably a handlebar mustache- while drinking PBR in a tallboy can, because it’s ironically cliché. While not everyone may understand the pinings and attitudes of a San Diego hipster, none can deny that our nightlife scene is hip indeed.

Here are some of the top bars and clubs where the local hipsters congregate:

  1. Craft and Commerce | 675 W. Beech Street, Little Italy
    The outside of this bar and restaurant is covered in green shrubbery, the inside displays chalk board quotes and classic novels all while the Bible or some other dramatic book-on-tape is being played in the restrooms. I think it’s safe to say that this is a token hipster bar. For a safe menu option, order the mini corn dogs, but if you want to experiment then give the roasted bone marrow a shot! You also can’t leave before trying one of their mason jar cocktails like the Black Sheep with coffee bean-infused whiskey. For more information on what to see and where to stay in Little Italy click here!
  2. The Lion’s Share | 629 Kettner Blvd., Downtown
    This classic hipster bar, located next to top San Diego Convention Center hotels, oozes class and sophistication instead of pretentiousness and nonchalance. Their dim lit lounge is covered in eclectic art work and a mounted antelope head, ironic because of the antelope sliders that sell like hot cakes on their menu. Grab a seat at the bar where you can chat up the friendly bartenders, or mixologists, while you nibble on an Exotic Sausage board. Cheese, apparently, is overrated.
  3. Tiger!Tiger! | 3025 El Cajon Blvd., North Park
    Beer, bicycles, beards and burgers! This bar has everything that a hipster could hope for. Lock up your bike on the railing outside before you stop in for some truffle fries, coconut glazed donuts or pork belly. Of course, you’ll need to order one or three of their rotating craft beers to wash it all down.

Looking for a hip and cheap downtown San Diego hotel that’s close to all of this action? Book a room at Pacific Inn & Suites, located no more than 5 miles away from all of the above mentioned hot spots! We have tons of ways to help you save on your stay during your San Diego vacation. Call our reservations line at 1-800-571-2933 so that we can find you the best deal!
