    We went to this ball park on our Old Towne trolley tour. It is a beautiful structure and it is easy to get to!

    The iconic central library is back and open for browsing daily except for Sundays. The parking garage below is now totally automated and still has 2 hours of free parking with endorsement. Although the shop used book shop is still closed, the library "gift" shop is open with new stock and sale items. There seems to be more security guards who are actively walking through the stacks.

    Many of their beers work with our pallet. Their Dunkel is outstanding!! Friendly staff, located in cool old Wonder Bread factory within quick walk of the stadium / gas lamp area.

    Dog-friendly & free games to play as well.

    Will be going back here again for sure!

    Note: I would be a bit leery of walking around there after dark but that’s just me.

    I went to San Diego on a budget so I decided to try the trolley, it was a good decision all in all since it gets to many places, some very far. I'm a foreigner so I didn't know what ot expect, but never had an issue. The trolley itself was for the most part clean, the people riding it just minded their own business, never felt unsafe.
    The reason I don't give 5 stars is because it was a bit difficult to get the hang of it. Nobody explains you much, how the cards work, how the tickets work, the lines, etc. Basically you buy a card with a number of trips and you recharge it after they run out. Before you get into the trolley you are supposed to swipe your card in one of the machines at the station and then hop in. Supposedly there are people checking within the trolley if you actually paid but I never saw someone, of course if they catch you riding without a ticket there is a fine.
    You can also not use a card and the buying machine emits a paper ticket, but of course this is for one way trips, while the card has other options. Also note that there are discounts for certain people.

    Anyway if you are on a budget and don't rent a car the trolley is a good option to get around san Diego, just know that you will walk a lot because while the stations are conveniently located you still have to walk a good chunk to get to some places.

    I travel a lot for work so I have experienced many gyms as a way to stay healthy when on the road. The Boxing Gym is very nice and very clean. I took Cody’s Power Boxing class it was an excellent workout. He spends a lot of time making sure you are using the right form. Also recommend Eddie’s Jiu Jitsu class, he is great at teaching multiple levels. Their weight room is also well equipped. I plan to return on future trips to San Diego. All-round 5 stars.

    Bridgette is an excellent tour guide! We went on a private tour of the wine country in Temecula as well as a day boat trip in the San Diego Bay. She was timely, energetic and excited for the day. She tailored the tour accordingly to our needs and desires and made it the perfect day. She followed strict COVID-19 guidelines and I felt safe and comfortable throughout the whole tour. Bridgette knows the area extremely well and is a wonderful guide. Bridgette had snacks and refreshments and made for a wonderful day experience. I highly recommend Bridgette for all your San Diego tour needs.

    Rob was our captain and he was absolutely Amazing we let him guide us and chooseour stops. I had 13 girls celebrating a Bachelorette party and this idea of pedaling thru little Italy and stopping at bars was a great way to start our day. I definitely recommend it.

    Went on a Wednesday and was fairly quiet as expected. Drinks were reasonably priced, good view of the ballpark & pleasant vibes. Also visited on a Friday and there was a DJ playing some bangers, check it out! Staff were attentive! I can’t decide which bar is better, this or the Nolen (4 min walk away). You decide...

    We had a work function here. The drinks were great. The band that was hired was amazing!! I hate that I can’t remember the name of the band, I would hire them in a heart beat. The venue was nice and spacious. It had an nice upstairs area and an area where they had billiard tables. Would definitely come back to this venue.

    It’s a intimate lounge located right near Petco Park. Once you walk it you are immersed in the environment of the place. The drinks are an experience in and of themselves and the live music in the evenings just adds to the experience. Definitely a great place to grab a cocktail downtown (they are potent) with friends or a date before heading out for the evening (or when the evening is winding down)

    Great little bar located adjacent to the Hotel Z staypineapple property. In a sea of high priced bars, this is great corner bar that has probably been around longer than most in the gas lamp. Staff is friendly and welcoming and they have decent prices compared to the competition. Great crowd the multiple nights we stopped in for a night cap before heading next door to bed.

    Will put this on our list to return on future visits.
