The best thing about San Diego is the weather, so get outside and enjoy the sunshine! The best way to do that is spend a day at the beach; Mission Beach has a busy boardwalk and lots of nearby attractions, and Coronado Beach has less beachgoers and calmer waves perfect for families; a short distance apart you might as well enjoy them both! For some amazing snorkeling visit La Jolla Cove, and you might even see a sealion or two. Take a hike through Annie’s Canyon, or at the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve; and see what San Diego was like when it was founded. Enjoy beautiful sandstone ravines, badlands, and breathtaking views of the coastline. Visit in the spring to see the wildflowers in full bloom.
