Check out these ways to explore sunny San Diego when you’re not at the conference.  

1. Sip your morning coffee at the Seaport Village  

Grab a cup of joe at Spill the Beans and soak in the picturesque views of San Diego Bay. Seaport Village is known for its unique shops so be sure to snag a few souvenirs—whether that’s hot sauce from Hot Licks or a nautical tee from Captain’s Cove.

2. Grab a bite in Little Italy 

Leave San Diego—without leaving San Diego. Wander the streets of Little Italy and prepare to eat all the pizza and pasta you could ever dream of. This lively neighborhood is known for its historic charm and piazzas that encourage visitors to take a moment to relax and savor their surroundings.  

3. Visit the wildlife at the San Diego Zoo  

While in town, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to visit one of the largest zoos in the US. It’s spread across 100 acres of land, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding your favorite animal— and you’ll have many opportunities to get close to the wildlife. Don’t forget to hop on the Skyfari Aerial Tram and snap an epic selfie.  

4. Experience the nightlife at Gaslamp Quarter  

There’s always something happening at Gaslamp Quarter. Known for its electrifying nightlife, the district is filled with culture. With an array of nightclubs, rooftop bars, lounges, and pubs, it might be hard for you to choose where to sip your favorite cocktail.
