Weekend in San Diego

We're so lucky to have family living in San Diego. It's such a great city to visit.
Saturday night we went to see an evening Tchaikovsky symphony which ended with an awesome firework display.

Sunday afternoon we spent some time in the Gaslamp Quarter.
We had lunch at a fun corner cantina.
There was a fresh chips & salsa bar that was complimentary while we waited for our entrees. The chipotle salsa was really yummy.
I had the avocado bacon burger. It was so good. The avocado was perfectly ripe and the burger was so juicy and full of flavor.
My hubby had the surf and turf tacos.
After lunch we climbed many many stairs to explore the harbor. It was worth it to work off our fattening lunches but today my calves are screaming. What you see above is about half the stairwell.
The views were really cool from the top.

Have you ever been to San Diego? What is your favorite thing to do there? I want to go back and see the Chargers play since football starts next weekend.
What did you do for the long weekend?


  1. I looooooooooooooove San Diego! That burger and those tacos look so god. I love walking around the island. Coronado?

  2. The burger and tacos look fantastic.

  3. Oh definitely watching the Astros beat the Padres at Petco Field on a warm starry evening.
