Holiday In San Diego

Are you ready to amble through the same streets as Ron Burgundy? That’s not all you’ll do during your San Diego holiday, so get ready to rock and roll. Where is San Diego, anyway? It’s at the bottom of California and has as many sunny days as grains of sands on its beaches. Aircraft carriers, beautiful beaches and even more beautiful people…we don’t need to go on any further, but you need to get up and go now!

Things to Do in San Diego

Since this town is knee-deep in Navy culture—remember Top Gun—make your way to the USS Midway Museum on the waterfront in downtown. Check out meticulously restored aircraft like an SBD Dive Bomber, F-4 Phantom and an F/A-18 Hornet. If you think you can handle the high-pressure situation of an aerial dogfight, then hop in one of the flight simulators and see if you can become an ace in a day. Unfortunately, Kelly McGillis won’t be greeting you after.

Holidays to San Diego aren’t complete without a visit to the San Diego Zoo in Balboa Park. Get yourself a cold beer to enjoy and then take the Panda Trek to see giant pandas like Bai Yun and Gao Gao. Be sure not to make noise around the pandas—in the words of the legendary Brian Fantana, they’re wild animals that will “literally rip your face off”. After eye-guzzling at the panda enclosure, head over to Gorilla Tropics and try not to laugh too hysterically as the giant beasts jostle each other for heads of lettuce. Believe us, it’s funnier than it sounds.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

With all the money you saved on San Diego holiday packages, you’ll be able to shop until you drop, get back up and do it again. If you’re looking for the Rodeo Drive of San Diego, make for Fashion Valley Mall, where luxury shopping and beach life come face to face. Did you come to town looking for antiques? The Ocean Beach Antique District is jammed with over 200 dealers. Wouldn’t it be nice to go home with a 100-year-old grandfather clock? Actually, that’s a little big, but how about an old pocket watch? That should be easier to put in your carry-on.

We know you just want to shop all day, but eating has to take place at some point. If you find yourself downtown when hunger strikes, get over to Little Italy and take your pick from any number of delicious Italian restaurants. Is Italian food your idea of a bad time? If so, use one of lastminute.com.au’s San Diego car rental options and drive the streets of the East Village neighbourhood, where restaurants turn out plates ranging from Chinese comfort food to Kansas City-style BBQ.

After you’ve purchased a hot little number from Fashion Valley and your belly is filled with something delicious, it’s time to let loose. The Gaslamp Quarter is home to many popular bars and nightclubs that stay open into the wee hours of the morning. If you’d rather indulge in something a little less crazy during San Diego holidays, the North Park neighbourhood has redeveloped itself into one of the hipper places to hang at night. Whiskey bars, tequila palaces and gin joints line the streets.
