Staying at a downtown hotel in San Diego provides vacationers who are looking to explore the area with the most convenience and comfort. In addition to a variety of restaurants and shops to check out, there are endless options for fun summer activities. If you are planning a trip to San Diego this July, the Pacific Inn offers a list of our favorite annual events that we recommend you visit!
Balboa Park’s Twilight in the Park
Each year, Balboa Park hosts Twilight in the Park, a summer concert series that features a variety of different artists and genres of music. During the summer, vacationers can visit the Balboa Park Museums during the day and on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, can head over to the Spreckels Organ Pavilion where free concerts will take place from 6:15 to 7:15pm. July features a variety of local artists including the San Diego Youth Symphony, the Marine Band San Diego and the San Diego Civic Arts Dance Group.
Nighttime Zoo at the San Diego Zoo
Visitors coming in July are able to enjoy the Nighttime Zoo at the San Diego Zoo. This year’s new exibit is the Conrad Prebys Austrain Outback which visitors can enjoy during extended zoo hours. Stay up late with the animals and check out the Zoo’s newest additions including koalas, wallabies, cockatoos, wombats and more. During the nighttime hours, visitors can also enjoy artistic and acrobatic events and live music performances.
San Diego Comic Con
While tickets have been sold out for quite some time now, there is no bigger downtown event than San Diego’s Comic Con. Even if you aren’t going into the Convention Center for Comic Con, feel free to dress up in your favorite super hero costume and hit the town with the thousands of conventioneers who flock to the San Diego Convention Center each year. If you are a first time conventioneer, be prepared for a lot of crowds, not only in the convention center but in the downtown district. Also, make sure to reserve your room at the Pacific Inn, a cheap hotel in downtown San Diego that offers the most value for budget conscious conventioneers and travelers.
Whether you are coming for a specific event or just looking to relax and enjoy the weather, enjoy your time in sunny San Diego!
