San Diego is one of those cities where you can experience it all. It has amazing entertainment, an abundance of shopping, beautiful beaches, and the best places to stay. Before you pack your bags and head that way, use this handy guide to help you with the planning stages.

Go for the Resort

Relax by the pool in San Diego, California

San Diego is chock full of hotels, Air BnB’s, and resorts all offering their own special amenities. We suggest choosing any one of the San Diego resorts as your best option. A holiday is your time to relax and one of the best ways to relax is in a luxury resort. They are designed so that if you choose to “stay in,” you still have a spa, golf course, or pool to lounge by and relax without getting into a car and having to drive anywhere. Feeling pampered and enjoying the scenery is one of the best parts about travelling to San Diego and staying at a luxury resort.

Get There Your Favorite Way

Car Hire in California

Travelling to San Diego is so simple and there are many options available to you including train, bus, car, or airline. No matter how you want to get there, you can. Road trips are a popular because of the affordability and it allows you to explore new areas and admire the beautiful scenery along the way. Road trips also mean no long lines at the TSA check, you can stop when you want to, there are no missed connections, and you have more space in the boot (trunk) for the souvenirs you really want to buy.

Road trips do obviously take longer, so for those that have a limited amount of time to travel, flying is the best option. San Diego International Airport is located just three miles northwest of the downtown area and very convenient to every resort and hotel in the area. It also has every amenity you could possibly need to welcome you to San Diego and make it as pleasant as possible, from food and shopping to easy car rentals.

Play and Enjoy

So, you have travelled to San Diego and settled into your luxury resort, now what? San Diego is full of exciting things to do, both well-known and a few hidden treasures.

Of course, everyone should make at least one trip to the San Diego Zoo whilst in the city. The zoo covers 100 acres of land, features almost 4,000 animals and 650 species, and has all sorts of entertainment to please everyone at any age. The zoo is open daily from 9 am to 6 pm and tickets for 2017 are $42 for children 3-11 and $52 for everyone 12 and up. Right by the park is the San Diego Zoo Safari Park that allows you and your crew to experience a safari without travelling to Africa. Ticket prices to the Zoo are separate from the Safari Park so you will need to purchase your own tickets. Prices are the same and there are discounted multi-park passes available if you want to do both parks.

Their mission is to save species worldwide by uniting expertise in animal and plant care and conservation science with dedication to inspiring passion for nature.

Shell Beach, La Jolla, California

Aside from the popular zoo, visiting La Jolla Beach is another highlight for any stay. Calm cool waters and plenty of picnic areas attract many to seek out this small one-mile beach. While you are there, look for the secret swings!

There are tons of restaurants, breweries, and shopping excursions to enjoy while in San Diego. Before you go, plan out all of the things you would like to do and seek out discounted tickets and best times to visit. If you are overwhelmed with all that they offer, whittle it down to those things you already like to do and add stuff in later if you have the time. You can always come back to visit!
