San Diego has great weather all year, but that doesn’t stop the city from celebrating spring. Book a Southern California getaway to take advantage of the warm sun and gorgeous beaches before the summer crowds arrive! No matter your interests, there’s always plenty to do, including lively festivals, daring activities, fun museums, and exciting nightlife.
Kimpton Solamar Hotel
The chic Kimpton Solamar Hotel is located in San Diego’s East Village, just minutes away from the Gaslamp Quarter and Petco Park. As the weather warms up you’ll love sunbathing at the rooftop pool. They also feature local beers during SoCal Hour, the perfect way to cap a day of sightseeing. Indulge and learn something new with the A Crafty Pair package, which includes a Chef’s selection five-course dinner, a mixology class for two, and souvenir cocktail glasses to remember your trip by.
Tequila & Taco Music Festival
San Diego takes its Mexican fare seriously – no need to wait until Cinco de Mayo for a fun time! The Tequila & Taco Music Festival will be held March 25th and 26th at Embarcadero Marina Park South in downtown San Diego. You can sample tequila, sip margaritas and craft beer, snack on gourmet street tacos, browse art vendors, and enjoy live music.
iFLY San Diego
If you’re looking for a thrill, iFLY San Diego is for you! Vertical wind tunnels create an indoor skydiving experience where you float on a column of air rather than jumping or falling. Just like regular skydiving, you’ll get an instruction period, put on your gear, and take a “flight,” which is the equivalent of 1.5 skydives. It’s the perfect way to get adventurous without going too far outside your comfort zone.
Analog, located downtown, is a stylish music-themed restaurant and bar in one. While the food is great (you can’t go wrong with the Brussels sprouts or popcorn chicken), it’s really their craft cocktails that are sure to impress. Try the Black Sail, made with black magic spiced rum, Kahlua, coconut milk, cinnamon, and orange and pineapple juices, or their specialty analog chai mule, a delicious mix of vanilla vodka, jasmine liqueur, chai syrup, lime angostura bitters, and ginger beer.
Fleet Science Center
Stop by the Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park and check out interactive exhibits on everything from biology to environmental science. Right now you can see So Moved: The Art and Science of Motion, an exhibit that combines scientific displays with local artists’ creations to explore over five types of motion. You can also catch a movie at the Giant Dome Theater, which shows IMAX films on a wraparound screen that makes you feel like you’re immersed in the action. See Dream Big: Engineering Our World, a film exploring how engineers have built our greatest architectural and technological achievements.
