San Diego is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the USA thanks to its year-round temperate climate and its many attractions. There is the downtown Convention Center, pristine beaches, theme parks like LegoLand and SeaWorld, sporting events and concerts at Petco Park or Qualcomm Stadium, and of course the world famous San Diego Zoo. But did you know that San Diego is the perfect home base for day trips through SoCal? San Diego is just a few hours from all sorts of adventures. We manage many vacation rentals in the North County coastal region of San Diego, and there are many places our guests visit throughout the year. Here is a list of a few favorite places:
Los Angeles (2-3 hours away)
Los Angeles has so many sights to see, it could easily be more than a day trip. Some of the attractions include Universal Studios, The Hollywood Sign, The Walk of Fame, TCL Chinese Theater, celebrity house tours, Rodeo Drive, a multitude of museums, Dodger Stadium, and Venice Beach, just to name a few.
Palm Springs (2-3 hours away)
Palm Springs is known for the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in the spring, but it is also home to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, Santa Rosa and Jacinto Mountains, 4WD and ATV trails, hiking, golfing, hot springs, Joshua Tree, and even the Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway.
