    You must go to Tijuana, you can walk around and spend the day there and have lots of fun, I have done it on my own without booking a company to take me, and I had a blast.
    Make sure to plan ahead, exchange some money because paying in the local currency is cheaper, download offline maps, you will most probably not have coverage therefore you will not have internet, I would recommend that you explore all the way to the arch, from the arch you can take any turn and each turn you take will reveal a new aspect of the city.

    Very funny comedy group, decent theater, refreshments available for during the show and the theater is in an area within steps to several good eateries. The show was hilarious and would be great for a group of friends or a family with older kids. I would have thought that a lot of the jokes (puns, pop cultural references, etc) would have “gone over the heads” of the youngest kids, but the few school-aged kids in the audience actually seemed to be having a pretty good time as well. My husband and I are both retirement-aged and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I understand that some of the late night shows are for mature audiences only but the 7:30 Saturday night show we watched was perfect for us. Highly recommended.

    The noble experiment
    Needed a quick date night
    I made a reservation on line which is why I’m starting off with this part in the review because I think part of us having a reservation was very helpful and enjoying the experience ,
    While looking for the address keep in mind that you will not find the location with the actual name of The noble experiment anywhere not on windows - not at the door
    Look for the actual address number and go from there . At first when you come across the location # you will say
    “Is this the right place “
    because all you see is a door and some comercial restaurant kitchen tables and such .
    As you walk in someone walks you to the bar but not before the instruct you on the popcorn - it’s forbidden in the bar only allowed in the waiting area which are those cold commercial kitchen tables / that are in where you wait when you don’t have reservations .
    It’s funny because it’s like they got a deal on some cold commercial tables and now just use them as part of their story - their story goes as follows . The owners closed down their kitchen and they are using half of it
    The place is a bit twisted but in its own little unique way .
    So you go down a tiny hall and come across a keg wall yes that opens up and boom there you go the bar that sits 30 beautiful checkered floors and very intimate seating , it’s almost sharing and listening to everyone’s convos until you warm up and everyone gets comfortable with drinks .
    The bartenders really know their stuff They have a simple menu of drinks and can pretty much make your choice of drink . The drinks are stiff so eat before arriving or leaving . There’s a delicious taco shop around the corner so grab a bite
    The bathrooms look very interesting graffiti on purpose almost seems like there would be a glory hole somewhere
    The vibe is semi casual but sexy and sultry since it’s dim and feels exclusive . There is no flash photography . Have fun and enjoy it . My husband and I sure did

    My favorite bar in San Diego! The only bar I go to for drinks. Drinks are pricey but totally worth it. If you have a birthday they will provide a small drink to the whole party. I wish they did not remove the old drinks from the menu or at least they should be able to make them but they dont have the ingredients they say. Also menus need to be reprinted as some of them have stains

    The best $29 I spent in San Diego having the hosts Sam.. Rafael.. Danni and Cynthia were a blast.. Totally worth the money altho no party bus.. Food or party favors as advertised..walking all the way so we're comfy shoes.. But no cover.. No waiting in lines.. Make sure ur over 21 and have your ID ready and don't get distracted inside the clubs because there is no good system for letting the club crawlers know they re moving on.. So figure out ur own system or get left behind.. You do get one free welcome shot tickets at first three venues.. Not the last one. Just sayin

    If you are enjoying a day on the water at Mission Bay, this is one of the few dining options with convenient access from the water. The outdoor dining area is beautiful. It can be tough to find seating on the weekends because this is a popular place. The food was a bit pricey, but good.

    Honestly one of the best bar crawls I’ve ever done! Joe and Serina were absolutely outstanding! Incredible hosts and made sure it was an outstanding time! The bars were very well picked! The price was perfect! Paid for itself at the first bar! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great time!

    My two girl friends and I had so much fun on this bike tour with Jeremy and Alex! Despite the rainy morning and some lack of bike skills, they went out of their way to make the tour a good experience for us. I would highly recommend, especially if you're staying in the OB area (or not since it's a great place to spend a day regardless). Thanks again for the fun morning, Jeremy and Alex!

    I decided to try this place on a recent visit to San Diego and I’m glad I did. If you enjoy Irish food then you need to eat here. I had the Irish Sampler which consisted of Guinness Stew, shepherd pie, corn beef and cabbage, and what I call Irish chicken and dumplings. Paired with a pint of Guinness, was just was I needed. It was wonderful.
