The downtown district of San Diego is recognized as the hub of the entertainment and nightlife, offering endless options for clubs, bars and more once the sun sets. However, what if you’re traveling with young children? Maybe you’re looking to enjoy San Diego in the morning? What are your options? As one of the cheap hotels in downtown San Diego, we know a thing or two about savings, and have created a short list of fun things you can do in the morning that won’t cost your entire vacation budget.
- Catch a movie. We’ve all watched the prices for movie screenings skyrocket in the past years, making going to the movies a less desirable activity. Fortunately, the United Artist Cinema at the Horton Plaza Mall in downtown San Diego is currently offering a discounted ticket price of $6.50 for all screenings before noon. Check out the latest flicks and enjoy deep discount and a modern theater with all of the amenities for the total movie-going experience.
- Tour Balboa Park. At 1pm on Tuesday and Sunday, Balboa Park offers a free walking tour. While the tour doesn’t take place too early the morning, the grounds are open 24 hours so you can enjoy the park before it gets too crowded. Plus, a majority of the museums open at 10am so grab a coffee, head over early and enjoy the park!
- Stroll along the embarcadero. If you’re an early riser and are not sure what to do in the morning, stroll along the San Diego Harbor and enjoy the views. Those staying at nearby San Diego Harbor hotels also have a variety of options for breakfast on the bay. Stick to local mom-and-pop restaurants to keep dining costs low!
- Grab breakfast in Little Italy. Little Italy is overflowing with authentic Italian cafes which serve coffees, pastries and more. You’ll be able to watch as the shops begin to open and can enjoy them morning relaxing on the patio.
