It's for you to choose whether I'm biased or in the know, but after living in San Diego for almost 20 years of my life I really think it's one of American's best cities. I love the fact that within two hours of surfing, you can be in the mountains picking apples. The weather is fantastic and with such great ...

La Jolla is a popular area for travelers as it's home to a gorgeous beach "La Jolla Shores" and also a popular tourist attraction, the seals at the La Jolla Cove. This town is also home to very fancy restaurants of all cuisines and high-end boutiques. A great place for a stroll or to have a nice meal. There are ...

Possibly my absolute favorite place in the entire world - and if you look at my passport, you'll know I've traveled a fair bit. But then again, as a San Diego native, I'm biased. For maximum enjoyment, splurge for a hotel - my favorite is the Marriott Island Resort hotel down toward the bridge. Pamper yourself with a spa/massage treatment, ...

I am biased as I grew up here.. La Mesa is called "The Jewel of the Hills" and rests at the bottom of Mt. Helix (a beautiful lookout)! There is a lot to do in the downtown area, bars, restaurants.. it hosts car shows Thursday nights in the summer and a really fun Oktoberfest!

A small town up in the mountains east of San Diego, Julian is synonymous with apples--apple pie, apple juice, apple picking, etc. It has an old-fashioned feel to it and is a great contrast to the coast and inland areas of San Diego.

Carlsbad is a scenic beachside community of around one hundred thousand people thirty-five miles north of San Diego. No visit to this city is complete without checking out the Carlsbad Village. The village is the commercial downtown nestled next to the Pacific coastline chock full of quaint antique shops, art galleries, clothing shops, restaurants, and more.

I love Oceanside, but I gave it a three star rating because of all the work that's being done on the beach, and on the roads leading to the beach. It's a major hassle getting to and from the beach. It's better to frequent the restaurants, bars, stores in the Harborside area north of the Oceanside Pier.

Quaint, cute, beach town with a laid back, know your neighbors type of vibe. Great restaurants, nighttime hang outs, fun beaches and a library that makes you want to read alllll day long!

Pacific Beach, to me is the tourist capital in San Diego, but Mission Beach gives it a good running for it's money. Gorgeous beach area to surf on, although drinking alcohol is prohibited... so pour it in a cup :) This is a perfect area for vacation as everything is in walking distance. Beach bikes and surfboard for rent, lessons, ...

This hillside looks like a lady laying on her side. We refer to it as sexy hillside. :)

A delightful, beautiful little seaside town between Encinitas and Solana Beach in San Diego. A quiet little road winds through some hillside neighborhoods and emerges on the coast, with swaying palm trees and happy locals trotting around with tanned skin and beaded flip-flops. The atmosphere is relaxed and quaint, a peaceful retreat from some of the more bustling and gritty ...

National City has a bad rep, but some of my favorite places are here! This place is home to some of the best ethnic groceries and restaurants in San Diego. In fact, when I fly back to San Diego, I insist on stopping at a couple of restaurants in National City straight from the airport (Tacos El Gordo and Manila ...

A really fun motorcycle ride heading through the laguna mountains and then dropping down into the desert to view all the gorgeous flowers blooming! Such a sight!

San Marcos has grown a lot in the last decade, and now it has everything you could need: shopping, dining, a good selection of bars and breweries, coffee houses, family activities, and a college scene. Plus it's a great launching point for other things to do, like the beach, nightclubs and the downtown scene.

This is home to some of the wealthiest folks in the county. Gated communities with multi-million dollar mansions, lovely golf courses and still, close to Del Mar (the Beach). I was once given an opportunity to attend a party in one of these gated communities and was in shock at the wealth that was exuded within.

A great area to learn to surf, calm waves and long stretched of beach. The town itself is very health conscious and active and also full of great boutiques and spas.

The Oink & Moo is a little jem out here in Fallbrook. You can order ribs, pulled pork, brisket or any of their delicious burgers. I particularly like the Peanut Butter and Jelly burger with bacon but if u are feeling adventures you can order the burger with the game of the day like Ostrich, Bison, Kangaroo and a few ...

I love Alpine, and was so glad my grandma had her house built here many years ago. Gorgeous hills with epic sunset views. The small town feel, friendly folks, and not a whole lot to worry about. There is a newer area in the eastern part of Alpine with big grocery stores and places to eat. Also, as a cool ...
