Sometimes when we plan a vacation, we forget the sole purpose of it, to relax. Although relaxing while on vacation seems like a no-brainer for some, when visiting a new city, a laid back vacation can quickly turn into a stressful trip packed with one attraction after the other. At the Marina Inn in downtown San Diego, we want to remind you how beautiful America’s finest city is! Skip some of the major tourist attractions and keep it simple.
- Hit up a downtown dive bar. There are plenty of things to do in the Gaslamp Quarter, but try something new and head to one of the dive bars in downtown San Diego. Order a beer, enjoy the laid back atmosphere, and catch up with your vacation mates. And because dive bars aren’t for everyone, ordering cocktails at one of the popular rooftop bars in San Diego is always an option. Either way, enjoying a drink during sunset is a great way to experience life as a local San Diegan.
- Go for a walk. Seems simple enough, right? Going for a walk in San Diego isn’t just a regular activity. With winding paths along the water and in some of the city’s top parks and recreational centers, taking a stroll through San Diego allows you to embrace its beauty. If you’re interested in checking out a few tourist attractions as you go, walk from along the harbor from the Embarcadero to Seaport Village.
- Lounge at the beach. There’s no shame in spending the entire day sunbathing or taking it easy at the beach. With 70 miles of pristine coastline to enjoy, San Diego warmly welcomes you to spend a lazy afternoon on its sandy shores. However, if must do something, try scuba diving at a San Diego beach. Not only will it erase your feelings of guilt, the activity is sure to make your vacation a memorable one.
Even though the above suggestions might seem simple, sometimes going with an uncomplicated itinerary is the best way to enjoy a vacation. What are some of your favorite ways to spend the lazy days of summer in San Diego?
