San Diego is known for its beautiful beaches, perfect weather, and outdoor activities such as surfing, hiking, and biking. It is also known for its world-famous attractions such as the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, and SeaWorld, as well as its craft beer scene and delicious Mexican food.
where we stayed
We stayed in the North Park area located in the heart of San Diego. It's known for its eclectic mix of restaurants, bars, and shops, as well as its artsy and creative vibe. It provides easy access to other popular areas of San Diego, including Balboa Park and downtown.
what we packed
When we visited in September it was warm and sunny, so we packed lightweight and comfortable clothing and a pair of comfortable walking shoes for exploring the city. Feel free to check out amazon storefront to explore our travel essentials.
how to get around
Los Angeles is a big city and the best way to get around is by car. We recommend renting through Enterprise since it offers a wide selection of vehicles, excellent customer service, and competitive pricing, making it a great choice for renting a car during your travels.
