San Diego travel tips

1) Head to Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve from San Diego for a day in nature

Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is a natural landmark of national importance to the north of La Jolla. To get there from San Diego, you can use the railroad. The national park is famous for its complete seclusion. The site is home to the endangered Torrey pines, which grow here and on Santa Rosa Island only. You can also watch the migration of whales from the rocks.

2) Do I need to rent a car in San Diego?

Renting a car in San Diego is a nice option only for those tourists who are going to travel a lot in the surrounding area (for example, to Legoland). Moving around the city by car is quite difficult due to traffic jams and paid parking.

3) Ready to bet on your favourite horse at the San Diego races?

Going to the races is a must-do in San Diego. Head to Surfside Race Place, and be sure to bet on your favourite horse! The events are held here from Thursday to Sunday every week. Stay responsible!
