What to Do with a 1 Night Layover in San Diego

If your upcoming vacation itinerary includes a 1 night layover in San Diego, you couldn’t have hoped for a better place to spend the evening. San Diego attracts thousands of tourists and vacationers each year and offers a wide selection of shopping, dining and entertainment. Whether San Diego is a pit-stop during your international travels or you are about to depart on a cruise from the Port of San Diego, there are endless options for things to do in the surrounding airport area.

One great way to experience the culture and history of San Diego is by spending the evening in the Gaslamp District, a popular 16 block area of downtown San Diego that is overflowing with first class shopping, dining and entertainment. The downtown district is also recognized for its many rooftop bars, all which offer a beautiful, panoramic view of the city skyline as well as the beaches and Pacific Ocean.

For a more casual evening, head to Seaport Village, a one-of-a-kind waterfront shopping and dining complex. Seaport Village is a great way to embrace the San Diego way of life. The complex is situated directly on the bay and is home to a variety of mouthwatering seafood restaurants. If you are visiting during the summer months, make sure to stop at Seaport Village with enough time to catch the sunset.

If your flight is scheduled to arrive in San Diego in the late evening, consider spending your night around Little Italy, a small neighborhood just a few miles from the San Diego Airport. With many authentic Italian restaurants and bakeries, you can’t go wrong with a relaxing meal in Little Italy. There are also many cheap San Diego airport hotels near Little Italy where you can recharge before continuing your travels.
