Arriving in San Diego

San Diego has survived a few tech booms in recent years, and while the influx of fresh blood and fresh money has invigorated the city, it hasn’t obscured the peaceful vibe that defines this place.


For the purest taste of old-school San Diego, drop by the GasLamp Quarter, where you can enjoy the beauty of the Victorian houses and jump on a trolley car tour. The sunshine here is so common and the skies are so clear for most of the year that you can almost take the good weather for granted. The exceptions to the rule are the months of May and June, which are predictably overcast.


While you’re here, budget in lots of time for the lounging on the beach. You should also pay a visit to the world-famous Zoo, which has expansive natural habitats for the animals who call it home, and engaging interactive exhibits for the whole family.
