Going home to California is always a pleasure. One of the reasons California is nicknamed the Golden state is because its modern day avatar can be attributed to the discovery of gold in 1848. It is an apt nickname name for me as spending time with my family is golden and spending time in the Golden state is precious.
One of my favourite places to visit in California is the city and surroundings of San Diego. Between glorious beaches and countless water activities, San Diego Zoo, Legoland, Sea World, Gas Lamp District, shopping malls and outlets, parks and of course another amazing country right across the border – there is something to do for everyone in this part of the world. To further enhance my enjoyment, San Diego enjoys a mild and sunny climate throughout the year.
San Diego is home to a thriving craft beer culture and multiple breweries both large and small. I had the pleasure of visiting the Belching Beaver Brewery in one of their open to the public working facilities. It was a lovely laid back atmosphere in the early evening where we enjoyed some fine beers and the kids loved the tacos from the Taco Truck that had parked in the facilities for their dining pleasure. All the beers were fabulous but the Mexican Chocolate Peanut Butter was my runaway favourite. I had never done this sort of beer tasting before and I would highly recommend it to people visiting san Diego, especially with families as everyone was welcome.
We also spent a few days in and around Mission Bay and I cannot wait to go back. Mission Bay Park is the 4,600-acre aquatic playground known as San Diego’s Water Wonderland. It is 27 miles of shoreline, with a variety of waterways, inlets and beach communities to explore. If you love water and water activities – this is a must visit!
I know that many of my readers can identify with the lovely feeling of ‘going home’ to where your family lives and where you grew up. It is truly the best kind of vacation as you are ‘home away from home’ and the whole family has a great time!
Have a fabulous weekend and thank you for visiting my blog.
