San Diego Spring Break Plans? Look No Further Than Just Around the Corner
San Diego is the #3 destination for spring break according to Travel and Leisure Magazine’s 2011 Top Spring Break Destinations. Why leave? Beaches, Nightlife and Amusement Parks will fill your spring break schedule. And really, who is surprised that we live in the place people escape to for sun, fun and partying—as cliché as it maybe seem.
What is there to do for visitors and locals alike here in sunny SD?
La Jolla Shores, Pacific Beach, Ocean Beach… we have enough beaches around to visit one per day this week and get a good start on the summer tan. Even if the weather is not so hot, each beach still offers an array of activities along the shore that family and friends can enjoy. La Jolla Cove and the view from the cliffs are picturesque beauties giving the location it’s deserved name as “the pearl” of San Diego. If you’re looking for a more laid-back atmosphere, Garnet Ave. leading up to Pacific Beach is comprised of a variety of restaurants, bars and shops. Mission Beach has all of that and more with the Giant Dipper roller coaster and carnival-type games and food— a real crowd pleaser!
Downtown San Diego, Pacific Beach, North Park, Hillcrest…there is every type of nightlife one could imagine in one city. The Gaslamp District is a classy, hip destination that has several fantastic nightclub locations including the house/techno driven Voyeur and Las Vegas luxe FLUXX. If a chill, dueling piano bar is more your scene, do not miss The Shout! House’s hilarious re-workings of your favorite songs. Just a few streets away is Little Italy are chic wine bars like Enoteca Style, Red Velvet Wine Bar and Tango Wine Company, each boasting a knowledgeable staff and an enticing atmosphere. Extraordinary Desserts is another famous San Diego bakery that is full of activity every night—and totally worth the wait for any of their desserts.
Amusement Parks and Balboa Park
Sea World, Legoland, San Diego Zoo, Ruben H. Fleet Science Center…killer whales and penguin tricks in real life! Kids are all over these San Diego destinations that have animals and exploration at the top of their agenda. The San Diego Zoo has pandas, giraffes, elephants and more for animal-lovers to gush over. The Ruben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park is another place to have hands-on learning and watch IMAX films about tornadoes, the Galapagos Islands and space travel.
San Diego has everything anyone could want to do over spring break. If you’re lucky enough to live here and haven’t visited these places yet, spring break is the perfect time to discover the not-so-secret awesomeness of your own city.
