Day 1 - San Diego


No true weekend in San Diego is complete without an afternoon sweating in the sun. No matter the weather, find yourself on the beach or at least near it when you hike through Torrey Pines' Gliderport, a moderate hike that takes you straight to the beach. Swap hiking boots for swimsuits after the short mile-plus hike, before succumbing to the beauty of La Jolla with a hearty sandwich at the Cheese Shop. Within La Jolla Village, spend the rest of the afternoon with the seals in La Jolla Cove, or a quick bike ride through some of the area's most pristine views.

For an early evening party enjoy a meal at Pacific Beach's illustrious Mama Mia's before hitting the bars, or walking on Mission Beach's mile long shore. The roller coaster is at the end of the boardwalk, and other bars like Wave House are excellent, inexpensive choices for this beach city.

Day 2 - San Diego


After an adventurous first day in San Diego, things aren't expected to slow down the second day. See everything with a hike up to Los Pensaquitos Canyon, a more expert adventure in San Diego that has a spectacular view and will get you pumped for the upcoming activities.

Travel downtown following the early morning/ afternoon hike (suggestion: make a picnic!) and make your way downtown. Gaslamp district is one of the best known parts of the city, but don't just do the tourist thing. Check out a ball game, and if you're hungry for more after a Friar Frank check out Quality Social, a low key bar that serves up local fare and reasonably priced drinks. Later check out a segway tour that will give you the basics of famous downtown, before hitting the club at the Hard Rock Hotel, one of the most recognized hotels downtown, particularly for its hefty schedule of prime-time events.
