A quick recap of my time exploring San Diego!
Since we are trying to make SoCal our base in the States, I took some time to really explore the area. While I had some fun, this was much more about getting a feel for the people and activities going on in the city! I made it a point to visit almost every single neighborhood in San Diego (and North County).
What I noticed was, everything is about 12 minutes away and very accessible via car. While the city is quite spread out, the highways are thoughtfully placed and there wasn't even that much traffic. If you are in town visiting, planning a vacation, or looking to move - here is a quick rundown of a few memorable spots in San Diego.
Demographic: 30's | Character: Bar Scene | Good For: Date Night
If you like beer, there is a brewery on every corner.
Demographic: All Ages | Character: Hippie Beach Scene | Good For: Vacation
If you don't mind the hippie vibe, this beach town can accommodate both a family beach outing during the day with 21+ nightlife in the evening.
Demographic: Hipster | Character: Up and Coming | Good For: Daily Life
If you want to be a local, spend your time in Little Italy. Lots of great newwave coffee shops and restaurants popping up (obv Italian Food!)
Demographic: Family | Character: Recreational | Good For: Weekend Activity
If you like to be active, stop by and rent any watersport by the hour and enjoy the calm bay breeze.
Demographic: Affluent | Character: Classic California Beach | Good For: Shopping, Eating, Beaching
An extremely livable city (Encinitas) - shops, restaurants and friendly faces on every corner. No wonder it's one of the most desirable places to settle down.
Demographic: Tourists | Character: "Mexican" | Good For: Time Filler
If you like being a tourist, this historical town feels like a theme park displaying Southern California during colonization. But good tacos and music!
