You wake up Saturday to a soft coastal breeze with the sun coming up over San Diego’s skyline. It’s expected to be a classic 75-degree beautiful day and the sunlight is just starting to burn off the marine layer so you can see the end of the Point past the Bay.
With over 330 sunny days a year on average, you would think that another gorgeous day would lose its luster. But, living in America’s Finest City, the weather never gets old. What do you do to make use of this wonderful weather you’ve been given? How about a little bike ride?
Step One: Coffee and a Bike
Throw on your sunnies for the quick 3 minute walk to Influx, where you can pick up a quick latte and a Decobike from the rental rack out front. Sponsored by the City of San Diego, you can rent an inexpensive bike from one location and drop it off at one of their many locations around San Diego. You can check their website to see how many bikes are available at each location and get a discounted monthly subscription.
On Saturday morning, the Golden Hill Farmers Market will be in full swing; stroll through to grab a freshly picked bouquet or some local honey and listen to live music. You can also head across the street to prepare for an afternoon picnic. Golden Hill Liquor features beer crafted by local breweries and Temecula Valley wines to enjoy. Hop on your bike and head north to hit some of the beautiful hiking and biking trails through Balboa Park.
Step Two: Balboa Park – Soak in Some Culture
You follow the trail up to the Balboa Park driving range and decide to hit a bucket of balls to perfect your swing or play a full round on the 18 hole golf course before taking a pit stop at the charming Tobey’s 19th Hole restaurant to soak in the view of the canyon.
Of course, if you had turned the other direction, you would have a multitude of world class museums to peruse. The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center has a selection of IMAX films and nothing beats a stroll through the free-of-charge Botanical Gardens. Stop by the Spreckels Organ Pavilion to see a free concert or sip on refreshments at the patio of the Prado, one of San Diego’s most scenic restaurants.
Step Three: Head East to South Park
Hop back on your bike and head further East through Balboa Park and you’ll find yourself smack dab in the middle of the colorful South Park. Still a mere 10 minutes from home, you have access to some of the trendiest and tastiest restaurants in the city.
Diners in Golden Hill and South Park have no shortage of creative cuisine options, from the retro-styled Turf Supper Club, where locals love the do-it-yourself vibe of grilling their own steaks in the center of the dining room to family-friendly dining at Station Tavern where an old trolley station serves as an innovative burger joint.
Step Four: A Hop, Skip, and a Jump
After a long day of exploring, golfing, hiking, and biking, it’s always nice to be home in 10 minutes or less. Once your weary head hits the pillow, you can rest easy knowing that anything you missed today is just around the corner to be explored tomorrow. With the quick access to the highways and proximity to downtown, a whole new adventure awaits you.
