Get beached in San Diego

It’s always a perfect day in San Diego — however you like to vacation. The city is known for its immaculate, sparkling coastline, with beaches perfect for surfing, sipping cocktails, and even hang gliding.

When you’re done chowing down on great Mexican food, take your San Diego car rental alternative for a spin to check out the bevy of museums in town that offer an array of exciting experiences, equally thrilling to adults and kids.

San Diego favorites

The secret to making the most of San Diego is simply to enjoy the outdoors. So catch a meal al fresco at sunset, tackle the mountains, dip in the water, and when you’re indoors, don’t forget to pause at the windows.

Balboa Park

Covering more than 1,200 acres, laced with hiking trails, and home to several museums, theaters, and restaurants, Balboa Park is much more than your average city green. Absorb San Diego’s culture and legendary sunshine.

Cabrillo National Monument

There are many ways to do the beach, but nothing beats wandering the tidepools and meeting all the sea creatures. You’ll need a San Diego car rental alternative to get down to the shore, then wait for low tide.

USS Midway Museum

In Downtown San Diego, this retired aircraft carrier gives you a taste of the Top Gun life. Hang out on the flight deck, explore the aircraft, and test your fortitude in the flight simulator.

This was my first experience with Turo. I was a little apprehensive, but Rodolpho made it a great experience!

I walked out of the baggage claim and Jesus pulled right up in the car - immediately. Drop off was the same; even quicker than hailing a taxi. The car was in perfect shape and is excellent. I was blown away by the power...and I drive BMW at home. The exhaust sounds like a supercar. Absolutely loved it! Jesus was on top of everything, making sure the trip went well. I look forward to the next rental!
