How to Staycation Like a Tourist

By Mike in Things to Do with 0 Comments

So, you’re ready to enjoy some time off from work or school but you don’t have any travel plans. What do you do? Do you lounge around the house in your pajamas or do you make the most of your days by planning a staycation in San Diego? Even if you’ve lived here for years, chances are you don’t know the city as well as you thought you did. And if you just purchased a Downtown San Diego condo for sale, a staycation spent exploring is a great way to get to know your new city.

Learn to fly a fighter plane. 

You read that right. There’s a company offering its customers the opportunity to fly a plane under the supervision of a trained fighter pilot. It that seems too extreme for you, sit back and enjoy the scenery as a passenger on an amazing flight through coastal California.

Picnic in Balboa Park.

Called the ‘Central Park’ of San Diego because of its massive size, expansive hiking trails, fountains, and museums, the 1,200 acres that make up this public space offer plenty of opportunities to run, play, and even nap in the sun.

Pick your produce.

Check out Suzie’s Farm for the opportunity to pick beautiful, ripe strawberries to take home with you. Slice them up, eat them whole or use them to make jams, jellies, and—let’s be honest—mimosas and daiquiris.

Snorkel at La Jolla Cove.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to check out life underwater, now is the time to do so. Grab your snorkel and make sure to snap some shots of the sea lions you spot once you’re back on shore.

Get lost in the Flower Fields.

Fans of floral fragrances and beautiful pops of color can visit the 50-acre flower fields for an experience like no other. Wear comfortable shoes and don’t forget your camera. Check out their website for information on special musical guests, workshops, and other fun springtime activities.
