Beautiful San Diego

I have decided to start a page where I will add my favorite pictures of San Diego from time to time.  It’s no secret that San Diego is one of the best places to live in the world  – it’s a tropical paradise with palm trees, the ocean, Legoland, San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds, and so many beautiful places to visit.  On this page you will find from time to time new additions (might be old pictures or new ones).  Of course, my favorite place in the San Diego area is the Hotel Del in Coronado.

If you don’t live in the San Diego area, but would like to visit, please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to recommend or book a hotel for you, and to recommend local attractions as well as restaurants.

Cornonado, and the Hotel Del (a must see in San Diego).  Marilyn Monroe shot one of her movies here, and many famous people have stayed here, as well as Presidents.

Hungry for pastries?  Try Champagne Bakery in Del Mar – love their Napoleons, and Jesuite pastries.

You don’t have to go to Las Vegas to find casino’s – we have plenty of them here in San Diego.  Sycuan is only 35 minutes away.

Great place to visit for the day is the Flower Fields which is in Carlsbad, close to Legoland:

Spreckels Pavilion – the scene of the amazing Holiday Tree that opens up to display a nativity scene that is inside the tree.  This tree is magical, and changes colors!

We have the wonderful Race Track, which has a Grand Opening Day every year which draws thousands of people from all over the country.  There is a hats contest, and a big celebration feel to the day.  Opening Day this year is scheduled to be July 18, 2012.

Another one of my favorite hotels in San Diego is the Manchester Grand Hyatt.  This overlooks the San Diego Bay, and is a stunning hotel

Even though I live here now, I am still a tourist in San Diego – it is a very beautiful place.

    San Diego – a paradise in the sun. We have not visit in this town, maybe due to lack of time. Many years ago we made a car trip in Nevada and California with my wife, my daughter and my granddaughter. The photo presenting flower field is amazing beautiful.

      Hello Sartenada,

      San Diego is definitely a paradise on earth! Next time you come to California, you must visit San Diego. The Flower Fields are indeed a beautiful place to visit, and they are in Carlsbad, CA – about 20 minutes away from where I live. The best time to visit to see the Flower Fields is in March and April. Other than that, anytime is a good time to see San Diego – we have amazing weather, beaches, and lots to see.

      Thank you for visiting my blog, and for commenting. I hope you have a fabulous day!
