Planning a Parents-Only Trip to San Diego

The summer is over, and the kids are back in school. You’ve spent a season providing your children with entertaining and enriching activities to keep them busy during these hot months. You’ve made it through school vacation, and a trip to San Diego, America’s Finest City, will feel like a refreshing reward for you and your partner. Now, it’s time for you to take a vacation of your own, no kids allowed.

While in San Diego, treating yourself to all that Balboa Park has to offer seems like a must-do. If downtime is what you’re missing, take a trek down any of the park’s trails and just soak in the nature around you. When you’re ready to rev it up just a little, the largest urban cultural park in the U.S. also has plenty of museums and art galleries. It’s right here that you’ll find the San Diego Zoo, the Spanish Art Center and various tours that you can take advantage of.

If PB&J and fruit punch have been a staple in your summer meals, you may be longing for a bit more sophistication with your food and drink. The best tours in San Diego for food and wine also include a little bit of culture. One option offers various food and wine tours with an emphasis on Baja California. If you prefer to stay a little more local, another option pairs fine wines, craft beers, and spirits with delicious food picks on a chauffeured tour of the city. Pick whichever tour suits you the best, and plan on spending the day getting acquainted with the best grown-up food and drinks that the San Diego area has to offer.

America’s Finest City is also known as the Napa Valley of craft beer. Outside of the guided food and drink tours, you may want to do a little touring of the Craft Beer Capital of America on your own. There are over 100 craft beer breweries and brewpubs in San Diego. The city also hosts a Beer Week which takes place in November and is actually a 10-day event celebrating the area’s independent craft breweries.

Add a little more culture to your time in San Diego by visiting the many diverse neighborhoods that make up the city. The Little Italy landmark sign welcomes you to a neighborhood full of beautiful piazzas and authentic Italian cuisine. The Gaslamp Quarters, also known as the Historic Heart of San Diego, is where you’ll want to be if you’re looking to hop on a cruise or wander through the Haunted Hotel for a scary good reason to jump into your honey’s arms.

Whether you want to busy yourself with mature activities or take a reprieve from all the action of summer, San Diego has got you covered. This city is a winner in so many categories, known for having the best beaches, being one of the greatest foodie cities and having some of the most scenic restaurants. A trip to San Diego offers parents the opportunity to make some memories that are uniquely their own.
