San Diego Holiday Planning Guide

Hello Dibbers! I am a San Diego local, born and raised, who loves my hometown and enjoys helping others plan their visit here. I started this thread because I have noticed how many Dibbers there seem to be who are planning trips here in the near future and have no idea where to start, or what to do here. I've listed all of the major things there are to do and see, plus some of the more worthy minors. I do hope this thread helps with your planning, but if there is anything else you don't see here that you are wondering about, please feel free to post your questions here or send me a private message. I'm always glad to help answer as I can.

A few general facts and information about San Diego

San Diego is located in the southwest corner of California on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. With a population of about 3 million, it is the second largest city in California and the eight largest city in the United States, renowned for it's ideal climate and 70 miles of beaches. Discovered in 1542 by explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, San Diego became the site of the first European settlement on the west coast and is known as the birthplace of California. Long associated with the U.S.Navy, San Diego is the principal homeport of the Pacific Fleet. San Diego is a very family-friendly town with a relaxed, laid-back vibe.

Distance to other major cities of interest

San Diego city is approximately 120 miles from the city of Los Angeles, 97 miles from Anaheim (Disneyland), 330 miles from Las Vegas and 20 miles north of the border of Mexico.


San Diego makes an ideal travel destination as it enjoys a beautiful, mild climate year-round. The average daily temperature is just above 70 F (21 C), with warm summers and mild winters. Humidity is low and the weather tends to be mostly dry with low rainfall averages, typically between 9-13 inches per year, with most of the rain falling from December through March. Although days are mostly sunny and warm, evenings can be cool in the city even in summer, so bring a light jacket.

The least amount of sunny days occur during what locals call May Gray and June Gloom months. What happens is that as the desert start to heat up at the beginning of summer, it pulls the marine layer that is off the coast (basically a thick layer of fog) inland and keeps the skies overcast over the beaches. Sometimes the clouds burn off by noon and sometimes they hang around most of the day.

Busiest times of the year in San Diego: the summer months from Memorial Day weekend (last weekend in May) through Labor Day weekend (first weekend in September). Local kids are out of school for most of these months and this is when the tourist season is the heaviest. Beaches are at their most crowded in the summer, as well as the theme parks like Sea World, the Zoo, Legoland. etc. Generally, any school holiday times will be very busy at the big attractions.

Major airport

San Diego International Airport
Located approximately 3 miles from downtown. British Airways is now offering direct flights from Heathrow to San Diego. Terminal 2 services all international flights.

Car Rentals/Hires from San Diego Airport

San Diego airport has a brand new, rental car center on the property that opened in January 2016. Many major agencies are located in this center now and shuttle buses are available to transport you from the terminals to the rental center. Check this page out for a listing of the agencies that are currently housed at the rental center, as well as those that are located off-site:

Hotel Recommendations

San Diego offers a wide variety of accommodations from full-service hotels and resorts to bed & breakfasts, budget hotels and motels, and vacation home rentals. Summer rates will be the most expensive as that is the height of tourist season, followed by holiday seasons such as Christmas and spring break time. San Diego is a popular city for conventions, so rates at hotels in the downtown area where the Convention Center is located will fluctuate up and down as conventions are in town. In general, the lowest rates will be in late fall and the winter months.

Since I am always asked for hotel recommendations, I've listed some reputable, popular hotels in the section below by area of San Diego.

Downtown San Diego Hotels (including Gaslamp Quarter)
There are some benefits to staying downtown: it's a 10-15 minute drive to all the major attactions such as the Zoo, Balboa Park, Sea World, Old Town, beaches and Coronado Island. There is a lot of action downtown, harbor cruises, the USS Midway Museum, wide variety of restaurants in the Gaslamp Quarter, the airport is only 3 miles away, Petco Park is downtown if you want to catch a baseball game, and there is good public transportation around downtown with the MTS bus system and red trolleys. But, there are also a few drawbacks to staying downtown that should be weighed into your decision on where to stay: hotels and parking are on the expensive side...with the amount of bars and nightclubs downtown, particularly in the Gaslamp Quarter, the noise levels can go on late into the night. Like many other large cities in California, there is also a number of homeless around downtown and if you find that too unsettling, you may want to give careful consideration to booking a hotel in this area.

US Grant
Embassy Suites San Diego Bay
Hard Rock Hotel
Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel
Manchester Grand Hyatt
San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina
Omni Hotel
Marriott Residence Inn Gaslamp Quarter (fairly new, all-suite hotel in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter. Free hot breakfast buffet included plus all suites have a full kitchen)
Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter
SpringHill Suites San Diego Downtown/Bayfront (brand new hotel featuring all-suites rooms)
San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter (located right next to Petco Park baseball stadium)

Shelter Island/Harbor Island Hotels

Both Shelter Island and Harbor Island are small peninsulas on San Diego bay, and many of the hotels here have a tropical setting or are surrounded by boat marinas. These areas are closest to the airport and are very scenic places to stay. It's a quick drive to the beaches, Sea World, the Zoo and downtown is only five minutes drive away, but can also be traveled to by the MTS bus system.

Shelter Island hotels:
Humphrey's Half Moon Inn (popular hotel, also home to summer concerts by big name entertainers)
Best Western Island Palms (highly recommended)
Kona Kai Resort

Harbor Island hotels:
Sheraton Harbor Island & Marina
Hilton San Diego Airport Harbor Island

Liberty Station (community near Shelter Island):
Courtyard Liberty Station
Homewood Suites (all-suites that include kitchens)

Coronado Island
Though it's called an island, Coronado is actually a peninsula. It can easily be reached by a drive over the massive Coronado bridge which spans San Diego bay. Coronado is a wealthy neighborhood of beautiful homes and shops with a small town feel and one of the nicest beaches in San Diego. Half of Coronado is also home to the North Island Naval Air Base.

Hotel Del Coronado (the crown jewel of San Diego, a historic Victorian era beachfront hotel with a long list of famous visitors. It was also the filming location for the Marilyn Monroe film "Some Like It Hot". The Del is worth a visit, even if you're not staying here)
Glorietta Bay Inn
Loews Coronado Bay Resort
Marriott Coronado Island Resort
1906 Lodge (historic B&B)
La Avenida Inn (hotel in short walking distance from the beach)
Best Western Plus Coronado

Old Town/Mission Valley Hotels
This area of town is just 10 minutes drive from downtown and the airport and is mainly a home for budget-friendly hotels and a large shopping mall (Fashion Valley, where you'll find the popular Cheesecake Factory restaurant). Mission Valley is also a transportation hub as a few of the major highways intersect and run through and around here. The drawback is that the hotels closest to the freeways may have some noise issues from traffic, so you may want to request rooms away from the front of the hotel if you are a light sleeper. The plus to Mission Valley is that hotels are mostly cheaper here than those downtown, and it's very centrally located so you can quickly get to most of the big attractions like the Zoo, Sea World, the beaches, and Old Town State Park.

Courtyard Mission Valley
Sheraton Mission Valley
Holiday Inn Express Mission Valley (free breakfast incl)
Springhill Suites Mission Valley (brand new hotel, offers free breakfast buffet)
Hilton San Diego Mission Valley
La Quinta Inn Old Town
Residence Inn Mission Valley (free breakfast incl)
Hilton Garden Inn (Old Town)

Mission Bay/Pacific Beach/Mission Beach Hotels
This is the area to stay if you want to be closest to some of the most popular beaches, such as Mission Beach and Pacific Beach. Mission Bay and Sea world is located here, and it's a quick drive to downtown, Balboa Park and the Zoo. If you want to get a real taste of San Diego's beach-town vibe, this is where you'll find it- but as with any area that is close to the beaches, hotels are a little more expensive here than those inland, such as in Mission Valley. Also, a lot of young adults frequent the beach bars and clubs in this area, so if your hotel is located on the beach, it can get a little noisy in the evenings, especially in summer.

Crystal Pier Hotel (historic cottages on top of the Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach- if you choose to stay here be advised they book up 6 months and more in advance)
Pacific Terrace Hotel
Paradise Point Resort (popular place with families on Mission Bay, right next to Sea World)
The Catamaran Hotel
The Dana on Mission Bay (also close to Sea World)
Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa
Hyatt Regency Mission Bay
The Bahia Hotel
Blue Sea Beach Hotel (beachfront hotel in Pacific Beach)

La Jolla
This is an upscale, wealthy beach town and one of the prettiest spots in San Diego county. The beaches here are fantastic...La Jolla Shores, the Cove, Torrey Pines State Beach...there are a lot of great restaurants and boutique shops in the downtown area of La Jolla which is called The Village. La Jolla is not far from the attractions in San Diego either, it's located about 20 minutes north of downtown San Diego.

La Jolla Shores Hotel (beachfront hotel)
La Valencia Hotel
Estancia La Jolla Hotel
The Lodge at Torrey Pines (Golf resort)

This is the location in Old Town State Historic Park, which is the official starting location of the tour, although you can also begin the tour at any of the stops along the way.

San Diego Beaches
*It should be noted that alcohol is not allowed at any San Diego beach or shore park, including Mission Bay Park. As with most beaches in San Diego, parking spaces are limited and can be hard to come by, so it's always wise to get to the beaches as early as possible in the day to get a space.

Pacific Beach- or "P.B." as the locals call it...probably one of the most popular beaches in San Diego, especially with young adults. There is a busy, heavily trafficked 3 mile long boardwalk here with many bars, restaurants and shops populating the area. A lot of families tend to prefer North Pacific Beach (pictured below, running north from the Crystal Pier) as it's a bit quieter there. Parking around Pacific Beach is hard to find, you're pretty much left to finding street parking where you can get it- so it's a good idea to arrive as early in the day as possible, especially in the summer.
Map & directions to Pacific Beach:

Pacific Beach and the Crystal Pier

Mission Beach
- another popular beach located just to the south of Pacific Beach. There's a funky vibe to the beachgoers here, most of them university students and other young adults. This is a great place for people watching, along with Pacific Beach. Mission Beach is close to other attractions such as Sea World, Mission Bay Park and Belmont Park with the historic Giant Dipper wooden rollercoaster. Parking can be hard to find here- your best bet is the public lot at Belmont Park.
Map & directions:,0.038495&z=15

Mission Beach

La Jolla Shores
(pictures below)- a lovely beach located in the beautiful city of La Jolla, it's one of my personal favorites and popular with families. The waves here are usually gentle and make a good location for swimming. There is a grassy area called Kellogg Park and fire rings available for evening fires on the beach. There are also a lot of restaurants and shops within walking distance, including places where you can rent surfing and diving equipment. La Jolla Shores beach has a large parking lot but it fills up quickly during the summer or on any warm day- it's best to arrive before 10 am if possible, or come late in the afternoon (after 4 pm) and stay to watch a beautiful sunset. Further south of La Jolla Shores beach is a scenic coastal area called the cove, popular with swimmers and snorkelers. The Cove is also a great place to watch sea lions, as they gather here in great numbers.

Torrey Pines State Beach
(pictures below)- another personal favorite beach, Torrey Pines is located between La Jolla to the south and Del Mar to the north. This beach is administered by the state park system. It's a beautiful sandy beach bordered by tall cliffs and is a favorite with surfers. There are two options here for parking: 1. Free parking along the shoulder of the Pacific Coast Highway that runs adjacent to the beach- very limited, so get there early for best chance. 2. Paid parking in a large, beachside parking lot just past the entrance gate to the Torrey Pines State Park. You pay at the kiosk at the gate, current parking fees (as of April 2017) are Mon-Thur: $10-12 and Fri-Sun and holidays: $12-20. The gate opens at 7:15 am and closes at sunset daily. If you drive past the paid parking lot and up towards the top of the cliffs you will find the Torrey Pines State Park, a 1700 acre reserve with hiking trails and beautiful views of the ocean from the tops of the cliffs. This reserve is dedicated to the preservation of the Torrey Pine tree, which only grows in two locations in the world- here and on Santa Rosa Island.
Map & directions:
*Helpful tip #1: do not sit at the bottom of the cliffs that line a part of this beach. Due to erosion, they are unstable and have been known to collapse without warning.
*Helpful tip #2: Torrey Pines beach is easily accessible except during times of high tide. It is usually a good idea to check the tide predictions before planning a day at this beach. A good place to check would be here for La Jolla:

North Torrey Pines State Beach with the Pacific Coast Highway running past.The parking you see along the shoulder of the road is the free parking.

The entrance to Torrey Pines State Beach and Reserve. Look for this entrance for the paid, beachside parking lot as well as the road leading up to the state reserve with hiking trails and fantastic views from the cliffs.

Coronado Beach
- yet another personal favorite of mine. Coronado Beach is located on Coronado Island and is one of the cleanest, family-friendly beaches you will find anywhere with the widest expanse of sand of any of the San Diego beaches. It is well patrolled by lifeguards and is close to restaurants, shops and parks. The south end portion of this beach runs alongside the famous Hotel Del Coronado. The north end of the beach will bring you close to North Island Naval Air Station, and sometimes you can watch Navy jets flying in formation from the base. Fire rings are available on Coronado beach if you want an evening fire, but get there early in the day to grab one because they are first-come, first-served.
Map & directions:

Dining Recommendations
San Diego has a lot of the large chain restaurants that you may be familiar with if you've been to Florida...Denny's, Cheesecake Factory, Chili's, Black Angus, Souplantation (same place as Sweet Tomatoes, only with a different name on the west coast), Outback Steakhouse, Red Lobster etc.

Below are listed some of my other personal recommendations:

Breakfast Republic Mainly breakfast menu, served until 3 pm (then the restaurant closes). Good variety on the menu with a few creative twists. Several locations...Liberty Station is closest to the airport, North Park closest to the Zoo and East Village is located downtown.
Lolita's Mexican Food (several locations, the one I go to is downtown on Park Blvd., right next to Petco Park baseball stadium)
Brian's 24 (American comfort food, open 24 hours, downtown location in the Gaslamp Quarter)
Cafe Coyote (Mexican food, in Old Town Historic State Park)
Corvette Diner (1950's style American diner, wait staff dress in 50's costume and are entertaining, tend to be sassy and have been known to suddenly burst into song, lol. Fun place to take kids if you don't mind a loud, over the top atmosphere P.S. The malts and shakes here are fabulous!)
Pizza Bella Italian Bistro(Old Town State Park)
Fireside by the Patio (Liberty Station, near the airport)
The Original Pancake House
Phil's BBQ (Ridiculously good bbq food, counterservice style. Featured on Man vs. Food, Point Loma area near downtown) Closed on Mondays.
*Tip: the lines at Phil's tend to get very long, so if you are short on time or just wish to avoid waiting with the crowds, you can phone your order ahead and pick it up at the restaurant at a separate window, then head back to your hotel or maybe to nearby Mission Bay Park for a picnic.
Kansas City Barbeque Downtown across from Seaport Village, known for being the filming location for the bar scenes in the "Top Gun" movie. The food here is ok, but IMO Phil's BBQ is much better. However, there is a draw to Kansas City for the Top Gun movie memorabilia.
Filippi's Pizza Grotto (downtown)
The Fish Market (really fresh seafood, lovely setting downtown on the bay. Located next to the USS Midway museum. I would highly recommend making reservations ahead for dinner, this is a very popular restaurant)
Carnitas Snack Shack Small outdoor eatery on the harbor downtown, on the boardwalk near the USS Midway museum. They specialize in pork dishes, a lot of those with a Mexican flair. Lots of yummy items!
The Donut Bar Very popular donut bakery downtown with some very creative, over-the-top donut creations. People line up early here! They also serve beer, as the "bar" in the name states.
Liberty Public Market Located in the Liberty Station community in Point Loma, near the airport. This is an indoor marketplace with lots of food stalls featuring different restaurants, coffee bars, specialty cheeses, bakeries etc. You can find all kinds of food here including southern soul food (and beignets!), Argentinian empanadas, Thai food, Maine lobster rolls, sausage sandwiches, ice cream, sweets...the list goes on and they are always adding new vendors. Check out their website for a current list of what's there. It does get busy in here, especially on weekends.
Hodad's (consistently voted best hamburgers in San Diego, featured on Diners, Drive Ins & Dives). If you are attending a Padres baseball game, there is also a Hodad's inside Petco Park stadium.
Bubba's Smokehouse BBQ (La Jolla)
The Cottage (La Jolla) Breakfast and lunch restaurant, cute little place in the heart of downtown La Jolla.
Snooze (Hillcrest, not far from the Zoo) Funky, hipster breakfast spot. The menu is creative and large!
Kono's Surf Club (Pacific Beach across from the Crystal Pier) If you're looking for a good breakfast spot by the beach, this is the best. They also do lunch. The menu is simple, very inexpensive and portions are large- very good value. Very casual spot, popular with surfers and beachgoers. They don't do reservations and the line gets long by late morning, so go early for breakfast. Important note: bring cash! Unless things have changed recently, Kono's only takes cash- no credit cards.
Shakespeare Pub and Grille (Downtown, near the airport. British pub for those of you craving a taste of home and you can watch the football games here )

Excellent, I hope you really enjoy your visit here! I'm glad this list could be of help. I think I have it pretty well covered...though I could have added so many more restaurant links, but had to control myself, lol.
