Candice Eley is a public relations manager with the San Diego Convention & Visitors Bureau. She tells us her top tips for a visit to the city.
What is San Diego’s best-kept secret?
“Our beer! There are more than 40 craft breweries around San Diego County, and all the best bars and restaurants serve up as many local brews as possible. In San Diego, supporting local beer is a way of life.”
What’s your top tip for anyone visiting San Diego?
“Consider getting a rental car for your visit. Downtown is very walkable, and the trolley system connects to a few places around town, but I definitely recommend exploring outside of the Downtown area, which will require a car.”
Where do you go to party?
“I love hanging out in the North Park neighbourhood after dark. Toronado is a beer-lover’s bar with 50 taps and 300 beers by the bottle!
If you’re in the mood for a cocktail, Bar Pink pours them stiff, and you’ll be rubbing elbows with the artists, musicians and other hipsters that call the neighbourhood home.”
Where do you go to chill?
“I love soaking up the view of the Pacific Ocean from La Jolla Cove. Sparkling blue waves crash up against the rocky cliffs, and you can watch harbour seals frolicking in the surf.
Even on a busy weekend, walking along the rocks and peering into the tidepools is wonderfully serene.”
Where’s good for an adventure?
“Surprisingly, also La Jolla – just head off the shore into the water. Kayaking from La Jolla Shores is super fun; you can paddle through gorgeous sea caves and get an up-close view of the seals. La Jolla Shores is also a great spot for learning to paddleboard or surf.”
