Me and a friend decided to take a last minute weekend trip down to San Diego. California living definitely has its perks. Your next adventure is just a couple of hours away. From Los Angeles to downtown San Diego on a Friday night it only took us 2 hours to get there.
San Diego is such a charming city. Tons of things to do and go see. During this trip we decided to stay in the Gaslamp quarter. We made it a real girls weekend and enjoyed ourselves every second of the trip. First night we got in kind of late so we decided to grab pizza from around the corner and stay in at the hotel to plan out our next two days.Saturday morning started out early and we had looked up a good breakfast place the night before. It was a cute cafe downtown just a couple block from the hotel where we were staying. I can’t say that the mimosa flights didn’t lure me there. The Cafe we went to is called Cafe 21 and it is a super cute place with a lot of different food choices. They have both outside and inside seating and wasn’t too crowded for being a Saturday morning. I decided to get the bread pudding french toast. It was delicious! A mimosa flight with 6 different mimosas was also shared between me and my friend.
After breakfast we decided to walk around the area and explore for a bit. There were tons o shops and malls within walking distance. The architecture of the buildings reminded me of Europe a lot. Something that Los Angeles definitely lack of. We even checked out how much it costed to live here and looked up some apartments online. The apartments in San Diego look so nice and is totally what I would go for. You can check out some of the best places to live in San Diego here.
Honestly, most of the weekend was spent drinking drinks and eating good food. Exploring the Gaslamp Quarter and just hanging out with m girl friend. We tried out the nightlife vaguely but felt like it wasn’t really our cup of tea. Saturday night we grabbed thai food at one of the few food places that actually was still serving food after 12am and went back to the hotel room to rest up for the next day. On our ride back home to Los Angeles we stopped by La Jolla to go see the sea lions and grab some gelato. It was a great stop to take on the way. La Jolla is only about 20 minutes away from Downtown San Diego and also such a nice getaway place. I would love to stay there some time!1
