If you’re visiting San Diego anytime soon, you might be wondering what you should do while you’re there. After all, the city is known for having amazing weather so you should definitely get outdoors and enjoy it, right? Check out these tips to learn what you should do while you’re visiting San Diego.

Go To The Beach

San Diego sits right up against the Pacific Ocean, so the beach is a definite must-see. Keep in mind, the currents on the West Coast are strong so swimming might not be a good idea. That doesn’t mean you can relax on the beach, listening to the waves crash against the shore, while you’re enjoying the sunny weather. You can also take long walks on the beach and look for seashells along the way. And, if you’re trying to save money while traveling, taking advantage of free activities, like the beach, is a great idea.

If you prefer a beach that’s pretty pristine, Coronado Beach is the one you should visit. Mission Beach and Pacific Beach aren’t quite as pristine, but they are both popular options because they are close to various attractions and amenities.

Go To The Casino

If you want to spend an evening out on the town, consider doing a quick internet search for the best casino in San Diego. Casinos offer much more than gambling. If you aren’t a fan of playing cards or slots, look for a casino that offers live music, a dance club, or a nice bar. It’s totally possible to have a great time at a casino without gambling.

Try An Authentic Street Taco

One of the best things about San Diego is that, because it’s so close to Mexico, it’s easy to find authentic Mexican street tacos. Street tacos are different than other tacos you’ll find because they are made on a smaller, soft tortilla, and they aren’t packed with a lot of extra toppings like cheese and lettuce. Instead, they are filled with simple ingredients, like seasoned pork or chicken, and avocado.

Check Out The Sights

There are a lot of things you can see and do while you’re in San Diego. The city is home to two highly interactive military and maritime museums. You can also take a guided tour of the city or a guided boat tour to see the city from the water. If you have the time, consider taking a guided walking tour of Carlsbad Village or tour Balboa Park.

If you prefer taking in the history of cities you’re visiting, Old Town San Diego is the perfect place for you. The long stretch of restored shops and houses sit on the grounds of the first European settlement in California.

If you’re traveling with kids or enjoy animals, consider visiting the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park. The 100-acre zoo is one of the most famous zoos in the United States because it houses one of the largest collections of rare and endangered animals (including giant pandas) in the world.

Watch The Sunset At Sunset Cliffs

Located nine miles west of San Diego, Sunset Cliffs spans 68 acres. The dramatic sandstone cliffs make a brilliant backdrop for a romantic sunset watching session. The area also has a lot of walking trails and is home to several beaches popular with local surfers. So hang out and watch the surfers hang 10 or take a hike along the trails to admire some of the untouched, local vegetation.

Ultimately, you’ll find tons of things to see and do when visiting San Diego so you should choose the options that appeal to you the most. And remember--don’t try to cram too much into one day, take the time to enjoy your trip instead!
