Wondering what to do this summer? Here are a few ideas courtesy of the San Diego Tourism Authority (and S.A.F.E.):
On the Water
A day on or over the waters of San Diego is the perfect choice. For those that seek adventure, book a ride aboard jet-powered boats that boast up to 1,400 horsepower with the Flagship Patriot Jet Boat. If speed is not his thing, why not charter a vessel for the afternoon and cruise around? Charter options range from quiet Duffys to luxury yachts and are available at ports all along the 70 miles of coastline. The old man can also burn a few calories before a big dinner by enjoying an afternoon kayaking and/or surfing the waves of the Pacific Ocean.
With more than 90 breweries throughout the county, it’s easy to spend all day sampling amazing local beers. To play it safe and make sure everyone has a good time, book a brewery tour and let someone else do the driving. It’s even educational, as the tour guides explain the brewing process while you sip. Do you prefer wine? Don’t worry, local tour operators offer winery excursions as well!
For a fun and relaxing day choose from more than 90 the world-class courses of San Diego County. Take your pick of beautiful coastal courses or breathtaking mountain views inland. With all the great courses available, you can’t miss.
Beer and Bowling
The three Tavern & Bowl locations are great because they offer everything: bowling, good food, local beers and cocktails. Other options include Kearny Mesa Bowl and Parkway Bowl.
Here are just a few classic steakhouse options in San Diego: Island Prime – C-Level, Morton’s Steakhouse, Greystone The Steakhouse, and Hunter Steakhouse. If you are really hungry, you can fill up at these all you can eat Brazilian steakhouses: Fogo de Choa Steakhouse and Rei do Gado Brazilian Steakhouse.
Bay Brunch Cruises
Take a cruise around the harbor and enjoy the sights of San Diego from the water. Cruise companies offer special meal father-approved menus and other fun for any occasion.
