From the moment you land at the San Diego International Airport an experience awaits you. The newly renovated airport has now become a mecca for shopping, relaxation and food.
Some of the new San Diego airport restaurants include Phil’s BBQ, Saffron, and Stone Brewing Co. Terminal 2 has added a the large “Sunset Cove,” which is an architecturally modern lounge and dining area surrounded by new amenities and spas. The same terminal also features new shops, some of which offer tax-free items.
The San Diego airport also proudly presents various artworks that are representative of the city, from performing art to rotating exhibits.
When visitors see everything that our airport has to offer they might not even want to leave! But if you must leave, Little Italy is right down the road and offers a great first taste of what San Diego has to offer. Little Italy parking spots can be few and far between, which is why taking public transportation from the airport is recommended.
However, once you’re down here there is so much to do! Little Italy is known for their food and festivities. Every Saturday they host a well-known certified farmers market where the streets are booming with fresh produce and live music. If you would rather sit down and have a meal prepared for you while soaking in the lively and charming ambiance of Little Italy, some must-try spots are Shino Sushi, Prepkitchen, and Craft and Commerce.
The cheap Pacific Inn is a Downtown San Diego hotel that is less than five minutes from both Little Italy and the airport. We offer an airport shuttle service as well as discounts on various local attractions. To make a reservation or to ask about our specials, please call 1-800-571-2933.
