Located just a stone’s throw away from the Gaslamp Quarter is Petco Park, home of the Padres; San Diego’s Major League Baseball team. Whether you’re a baseball fan or not; Petco Park is worth a visit. Grab a pair of $10 tickets and take in the game from the beach behind center field. Yes we meant to say beach. An area full of sand and bleacher seats may not be the most conventional way to watch nine innings, but where else can you watch an MLB game while sitting on the sand? Petco Park is also known for its amazing behind the scenes tour where you will have access to the press box, dugout, the bullpen, the luxury suites and so much more. Tours run all year around, even on games days and we highly recommend putting this on the top of your list. Cheer on the Padres from the beach or the stands and take in the sights of downtown San Diego.

In 1542 the first European ever to step foot on the West Coast of The United States of America landed here at Cabrillo National Monument Park. Besides discovering the history behind Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo; the 16th century explorer who the park is named for; this reserve offers up many more things to do. Hike along the trails of the rocky inter-tidal area to discover tide pools filled with hermit crabs at low tide or head to the whale watching area from December to May to catch a glimpse of the giants as they pass by. Visit the Loma Lighthouse, one of the original lighthouses on the West Coast which has been restored to reflect what life looked like in the 1800s. Snap a few pictures of the magnificent views of San Diego Bay and Coronado Bridge. When you’re finished exploring this beautiful park, head to Sunset Cliffs National Park for an outstanding sunset; which just happens to be our next must see in San Diego.

After you have visited the Cabrillo National Monument head to Sunset Cliffs Natural Park; one of the best places in the city to watch the sun go down. Comprised of 68 acres of National Park, this jagged shoreline is full of dramatic cliffs, caves and miles of ocean. Head down a set of steep stairs to explore the caves and secluded beaches or walk along the soft dirt path behind the rails for some outstanding views of San Diego. Parking is along the path in one of many lots but do head there before sunset to get a spot. Make sure to bring your camera to capture the sun as it sets among ocean blue water, swelling waves and towering cliffs.

315 E. Broadway, Vista, CA 92084 | Directions 760-631-1888 | Website You should visit this deli for its fabulous arty bathrooms alone. And for its quirky, beautifully carved, purpose-built house. And for its musicians who play in the patio at night. And because the place is open 24 hours every day except the Sabbath, which is celebrated from Friday lunchtime till Sunday lunchtime. The people who run Yellow Deli are a community of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. They try to live like the early Christians. Their house-restaurant is a collection of rooms, caves, alcoves, barn doors, raw wood, and poles, like a ship (an ark, maybe?). And, man, they deliver on the food. Yes, it’s a little bit nuts-and-twigs, but they have beef and lamb sandwiches. And salads come direct from their garden in Valley Center, picked today. And wonderful wholesome soups. The potato-cheese soup’s to die for. You can get a cupful for four bucks and change. And the veggieburger would fool even my dedicated carnivore Carla. But don’t expect TV screens. “TV has replaced the hearth,” says one of the crew.

Parks can be hit or miss but in my opinion Brengle Terrace is one of the good ones. It is not very big but it is diverse. It has basketball and tennis courts, a rec room, and my favorite, lots of open grass and hillsides to walk around and race the kids. The very best part of this park is the amphitheater where they hold outdoor musicals during the summer. The Moonlight is a summer requirement. This is also the best place to go and watch the fireworks if you’re in Vista On the Fourth of July
