Must-Haves for Summer in San Diego

By Mike in Downtown San Diego Living with 0 Comments

Boasting seventy miles of beaches and plenty of beautiful, sunny days, San Diego is a mecca in the summertime. Here are just a few essentials to get you ready for the season in this booming beach town.

1. Solar Charger

A solar charger for your cell phone is eco-friendly and will come in handy at the beach or while lying by the pool. They are affordable, compact, and come in a number of different designs.

2. Rosebud Salve

This a great multitasker to take on that beach trip as well. It can be used as a lip and face moisturizer, an after sun balm, and even keep frizzy hair at bay. This little lifesaver not only smells fantastic, it also doesn’t take up tons of room in your beach bag!

3. Water Toys

For the little ones (and the adults!), don’t forget the water toys! Floats and underwater cameras are great fun for everyone and can capture lasting memories of fun in the sun.

4. Smart Thermostat

When temperatures reach the nineties, a smart thermostat is a lifesaver. With this device, you can use your phone to raise the temperature in your home while you are not there, saving you money on your electricity bill, and lower it to a comfortable setting before you return home. If your condo in the Gaslamp District doesn’t have one (the buildings tend to be older here), look into installing one before summer officially arrives.

5. Reusable Water Bottle

Reusable water bottles, like a CamelBak or Nalgene, are another great way to save some dollars, as well as the environment. They can be found in plastic, metal, and even glass, and will keep you hydrated while spending long days under the summer sun.

6. Sweater

San Diego may be known for its great weather, but when the sun sets the evenings can get cool. If you’re planning on spending your summer evenings around a fire pit, be sure to keep a comfortable sweater on hand.
