Visiting San Diego | Late-Summer 2014

It’s not too late for a day on the beach, and the San Diego area offers plenty of places to sink your toes in the sand. Mission Beach is a go-to favorite of visitors and residents alike with carnival-style rides and roller coasters, a running/biking path, and plenty of food options and novelty shops. It’s also a convenient place to catch a sunset after a day at SeaWorld San Diego, where this year visitors can enjoy special discounts and events in celebration of SeaWorld’s 50th anniversary.

Offering beach fun off the beaten path, the quaint town of La Jolla, just north of San Diego, has several spectacular spots. La Jolla Cove Beach is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and SCUBA diving and the adjacent Scripps Park is a great place for an afternoon picnic with an ocean breeze. The park also provides access to a rocky bit of shoreline where crashing waves put on quite a show at high tide. Or, for a quick seaside hike with a picturesque view as a reward, check out North Bluff Preserve, just north via Camino Del Mar.

La Jolla celebrates classic cinema with the 2014 Flicks on Bricks series, now through August 28th. Held at the Athenaeum, showings begin at 7:30 and include selections like North By Northwest, Singin’ in the Rain, The Thomas Crown Affair, and To Kill a Mockingbird.

Coronado offers an almost-suburban respite from the hustle and bustle of downtown San Diego, with smooth, expansive beaches and rows of colorful homes. Venture out of downtown, across the impressive Coronado Bridge, and check Out the Lamb’s Players Theatre in Coronado, where this season you’re invited to experiences like Dinner with Marlene – an unforgettable dinner party set one evening prior to the start of World War II.

Excitement surrounding the return of NFL football is mounting as preseason games have already begun. In San Diego, the excitement boils over on September 14th, when the Chargers take on the San Francisco 49ers at Qualcomm Stadium in 2014 regular season home opener. See the Bolts take on the toughest teams in the league as they go to battle in the AFC West division at home games through December 15th.
