To enjoy San Diego’s nightlife, the best neighbourhood to stay in is the famous Gaslamp Quarter. Choose a Pacific Beach hostel or a hostel in Ocean Beach to make the most of the sea. If it’s mouth-watering food that you are after, have a stroll down the streets of Little Italy.
San Diego is the obvious destination for chilled out holidays on the beach. Among the best ones are: La Jolla, Swami’s beach and Carlsbad State Beach. The city also boasts numerous popular parks like Balboa Park, SeaWorld and Sunset Cliffs Natural Park to name just a few.
