It’s September already! What does that mean? The back to school season is just beginning. With San Diego being home to three major universities, there’s no city as active during this time of year. At the Marina Inn in downtown San Diego, we wanted to take the time to welcome incoming freshman to San Diego State (SDSU), University of California San Diego (UCSD) and University of San Diego (USD).
San Diego is a great place for you to spend the next four years of your life. While you may not be interested in visiting Legoland California or hopping on the rides at SeaWorld San Diego, there are plenty of non-tourist attractions to enjoy. Plus, with year round sunshine and more than 70 miles of pristine coastline, you really can’t go wrong.
Some of the top attractions for young adults include Pacific and Ocean Beach, La Jolla Cove and the downtown district of San Diego. While some of you may not be old enough for drinks at the bars in the Gaslamp Quarter, there are plenty of other activities including bay cruises, kayaking and surfing lessons, trips to Balboa Park and baseball games at the historic Petco Park.
For those who are coming down to San Diego without a car, the public transportation provides you with the opportunity to travel to various destinations throughout the county. Be sure to make use of the bus system, as well as the trolley system. If you are going to live off campus, living near a trolley station could benefit you greatly.
