Tacos El Gordo: Best Tacos in San Diego

Searsucker: Upscale American Dining in San Diego

The Gaslamp area of San Diego is one of the top destinations in the city for both food and drinks. While there are a ton of options for great places to eat, for me Searsucker is one of the best for a nice upscale meal in downtown San Diego. The unique menu here and the relaxed […]

Petco Park Tour in San Diego

Maritime Museum of San Diego: Exploring Old Ships in San Diego Bay

Located in the bay, right near downtown San Diego, the San Diego Maritime Museum is one of my favorite places to explore in the city.

Harper’s Topiary Garden in San Diego

Harper’s Topiary Garden in San Diego’s Mission Hills area is a labor of love from the couple that lives in the house above the garden.

Sunset Cliffs Open Ceiling Sea Cave in San Diego

The open ceiling sea cave in the Sunset Cliffs area of San Diego is one of those places that’s hard to believe is in California. This massive sea cave is a fantastic spot for photos, and due to the difficulty of access (only during a negative tide), it stays relatively secluded. If you want to […]
