Tell a Chicagoan they get to go to California in March and it's like a dream come true for them.
I was lucky enough to be able to spend 4 days in San Diego for work, which included a weekend exploring the city! I was excited to break out my camera to document my adventures. It rained a ton but that couldn't damper my spirits.
A wonderful way to start my Saturday!

One highlight of my time in San Diego that I wasn't able to capture in photos was visiting Seal Rock in La Jolla. Dozens of California Grey Seals congregate here! I recommend going for a stroll along the paths by the reefs, then rooftop dining at Eddie V's.
Margarita, market oysters, wild mushroom salad with warm goat cheese, pacific ahi tuna, glass of red and chocolate cake. You'll roll out of the restaurant but be so happy with life : )
I've been to a few places in California, and San Diego is by far my favorite city. I'd absolutely love to fly out there, spend a few days then rent a car and drive up the coast. As with every trip I take, I return home happy to be back but ready for my next adventure.
Have you ever been to San Diego? What did you think of the city?
