Local San Diego favorites

A taste of the islands on the mainland, San Diego is equal parts mellow getaway and bustling metropolis. Book a car and cruise the coast for some epic SoCal vistas and adventures.

  • The San Diego Zoo Safari Park

  • For those of us who can’t swing a trip to the Serengeti, the Safari Park is an exceptional local alternative. A short drive up to Escondido for the day will transport you a million miles away.

  • North Park

  • An artsy neighborhood just north of the zoo, North Park is overflowing with boutiques, cafes, bars, galleries, and the North Park Farmers Market.

  • Ocean Beach

  • No trip to SD is complete without a beach trip. Drive your Turo car down to OB, rent a board, ride some waves, and finish off the day with "the world’s best burgers" at Hodad’s.
