#lpaS2014 was such a great and informative time… but it was also a time we took to do some sightseeing! We had a lot of fun walking around San Diego, but there were some real highlights! I would post another 3,000 word post… only that wouldn’t be very fun for anyone. So here are some of the must-sees… and a friendly reminder that not everything has to be planned! One of the great things about San Diego (and travel in general) is that you can just explore!
I made the specific request to go to The Greatest Generation walk. To get there, we took a beautiful jaunt from the hotel (with Miss A in the stroller), and enjoyed one of my favorite things in the world… HISTORY! We would have loved to board the USS Midway, but it made more sense for us to see it from afar and get more city walking in! The area is just beautiful!
Ralph’s Market… Just wanted to throw this in here. This market is awesome- from offerings to prices! I seriously never would have guessed that it’s a chain! There is a place to eat outdoors, a vast beer and wine selection, and lots of organic finds. Seriously… I’ve never actually loved a grocery store, but we actually talked about how this would be our place to shop if we lived in San Diego!
The Gaslamp Quarter, Seaport Village and just spending time walking along the water and enjoying the many city parks was amazing. San Diego is unique in its city planning, with everything from street lights to water conservation thought about and done in a beautiful way. There were lots of small pockets of grass or random climbing places for Addie to take a break and run in, and because the sidewalks are often way bigger and separated from the road by some sort of gardens, I always felt safe letting her play.
And… just to geek out a bit: The Hall of Justice!
