When In San Diego, Things to Do and See For Free (Or Almost Free)
There are tons of San Diego things to do and see! Let’s start with The San Diego Zoo. If you’re a zoo person, you will fall in love with this amazing home to so many species of animals (who are well cared for and loved!). If wine tasting floats your boat, you must set sail for one (or all!) of the following wineries for a true taste of Southern California including: Bernardo Winery, Carruth Cellars, La Cetto (which produces 90% of Mexico’s wine!), Menghini Winery and my favorite – Witch Creek Winery, where all the wines have a feline inspired name. Meow! Wine is definitely one of the top ways to spend an afternoon in San Diego!
I am a self-professed coupon cutter, always looking for ways to save my pennies for a rainy day. Even though there aren’t a ton of rainy days in Southern California, those extra pennies add up! When I travel to San Diego, inexpensive but fun activities let me spend my piggy bank on savory meals and centrally located hotels. Take Cabrillo National Monument at 1800 Cabrillo Memorial Drive. Open Daily from 9am-5pm, admission is $3-$5 for access to exhibits, whale watching, tide pools and trails leading to the Old Point Loma Lighthouse. Or visit downtown’s Seaport Village, for hours of strolling, street entertainers and window-shopping.
