Planning a Trip to San Diego? Make Sure to Visit These Three Places

San Diego is filled with beaches, boats, beauty, and distinct regions with diverse attractions and features. When you are planning your trip, the following regions are ones that you should fit into your vacation schedule. There are great San Diego hotels in these areas to fit your budget too.

Downtown

Little Italy will light up your senses. You can walk around town and explore the many local art galleries and unique boutiques while inhaling the mouthwatering aroma of authentic Italian food from local restaurants and cafés. Stop in one of them for a meal and you will not be disappointed.

Next, take a walk along the Embarcadero district boardwalk. There are great views of the bay and the Urban Trees sculptures that line it. This region is also known for its fresh seafood which you can savor at one of many outstanding seafood restaurants.

If you are staying downtown, the Four Points by Sheraton San Diego Downtown is a wonderful option. The hotel and rooms are all about comfort. Views from the rooms are fantastic. And the available $5 dollar restaurant vouchers make dining in the hotel comfortable for your wallet.

La Jolla

Three sides of La Jolla are encompassed by water, so plan to go beach hopping. And don’t miss out on the fun of swimming and exploring the coves and tide pools along the coastline. For a different view of the beaches, if you are adventurous enough, a hang-gliding flight is thrilling and offers stunning views.

In addition to being an awesome beach spot, La Jolla is an incredible place to hit the greens. With two championship courses that host annual PGA events, Torrey Pines is counted as one of Golf Links Magazine’s “Must Play” courses.

The Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines which overlooks the course and the Pacific Ocean is an ideal place to stay. The rates are very reasonable when you consider all the hotel has to offer including a pool, a wellness spa, and a restaurant with truly scrumptious food.

Coronado

Like La Jolla, Coronado is also known for its beautiful beaches, but what sets it apart is that it is an island community with a small town feel. The main street in Coronado, Orange Avenue, has several local specialty shops. Of course there are also art galleries, boutiques, bistros, and wine bars that you will certainly enjoy.  Be sure to visit the Hotel del Coronado, built in 1888, when you are here too. It is a National Historic Landmark, and learning about its colorful past is fascinating.

If you like history, 1906 Lodge at Coronado Beach should be your choice for lodging. The hotel was built only eight years after the Hotel del Coronado. The hotel and rooms have very cozy décor that honors the history of Coronado, and they all come with a full complimentary breakfast. The historic lodge rooms are a favorite, but there are also suites available.
All of San Diego has something to offer, so if you have enough time, don’t miss out on any of it. And don't miss out on the many excellent restaurants throughout the city; Weotta can help you select the perfect dining destination.
