A Day in San Diego

While working in Costa Mesa, California, for three weeks, I had about eight hours to drive to San Diego and spend time in this coastal city, I had heard for years that this place was stunning, but this town exceeded my expectations. Here are some places you must visit in San Diego if you only have a day.

Hotel Del Coronado

Balboa Park

The entire area is picturesque with local musicians playing, artist painting, and amazing food everywhere. There are plants and flowers all over the park, and you can spend hours walking around looking at the architecture of the gorgeous buildings. IMG_1672.jpg

La Jolla Cove

At the cove, there is a little shop that lets you climb down steps to a cave that opens right on the shore.

What are your favorite places in San Diego?!
