Things to Do in San Diego

San Diego is a great town with tons of sights and activities. There’s always something new to see, something you haven’t done yet in San Diego. If you’re looking for a beach to lounge on and read that great novel or just a piece of pulp fiction, there’s a plethora of public beaches with fine sand and appropriately ripped lifeguards on-duty. Upcoming fun things to do in San Diego include an exhibit at the Oceanside Museum of Art (through September 30th) called “Cruisin’ Califas: The Art of Lowriding.” The exhibit showcases lowrider culture through photographs, paintings, sculptures, cars, motorcycles and bikes. Located at 704 Pier Way in Oceanside, CA — admission is free every Tuesday in 2012.

Endless Summer: Outdoor Activities in San Diego

One of the best things about living in Southern California is that summer never seems to end. Yes, the days get shorter, but the sun shines bright into the fall and winter. If you’re still hankering for a bit of outdoor revelry, check out the Grape Stomp and Festa at the Menghini Winery in Julian — starting September 1st. Italian tunes, old school grape stomping, dancing bocce, wine tasting, kids activities and a plethora of food and crafts for sale make this event one of my favorite outdoor activities. It calls for a toast to endless summers.

Keeping Kids Busy: Go Greek at Cardiff By the Sea

Whether San Diego is your hometown or just a temporary escape from the daily grind, finding activities for kids during daylight hours can be a real chore. Luckily, there are lots of active recreational activities with kids, including the upcoming Greek Festival at Cardiff-by-the-sea September 8th-9th. Delicious Greek food, live music, dancing, shopping, homemade pastries, and more. The festival takes place at Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church. If you’re raising a budding Picasso, check out Artsplash in Carlsbad, September 22nd-23rd. Kids will love the art street paintings, strolling performers – not to mention the free fireworks.

Travel Journal: My Unexpected and Awesome Trip to San Diego

Recently a good friend proposed that we hop on the train at Union Station and make our way out of LA down to San Diego for the day. The ticket cost $37.00 and took us 2 and a half hours, which we filled with a few beers and some much needed catch up time on each other’s lives. We arrived in Old Town and made our way to the Old Town Saturday Market on Harney Street. Turns out it’s one of the best events to check out in San Diego – and is the largest weekly artisan fair, with handmade items, clothing, photography and live music. Also – admission was free!
