Sometimes the hustle and bustle of life, or even vacationing, can leave one stressed and worn out. If you’re visiting San Diego and are looking for calming and relaxing places to escape to during a break in your sightseeing schedule, you’ve come to the right place. Despite its busy and noisy downtown district, visitors can find solace in the quiet, peaceful attractions that are minutes away from the downtown San Diego Pacific Inn.
Right along the San Diego Bay are the quaint shops and restaurants of Seaport Village. For relaxation, vacationers can take a stroll along the water on the Embarcadero or bring a book and sit on the grass looking toward the harbor. Many of Seaport Village’s restaurants have outdoor seating on private patios looking toward the majestic Coronado Bridge.

To experience an even larger park, head over to Balboa Park. This park has acres of quiet and grassy picnicking areas, lush gardens, easy walking trails and interesting museums. With the park’s large size and beautiful grounds, it isn’t uncommon to find locals having a picnic or reading a book along the pond by the botanical garden. For added relaxation, visitors can listen to a free organ concert at the organ pavilion every Sunday afternoon at 2pm. Your little mental getaway can continue while you dine at the park. Diners at the popular El Prado and other Balboa Park restaurants can enjoy a savory meal outdoors on private patios.
