San Diego Day Three- Bite San Diego and Sunset Cliffs

Just a warning, this post is long!

Don’t forget to check out San Diego Day One and San Diego Day Two.

Day three started with work. Huck and I got up early to get some work done before starting the day. After wrapping up a few tasks, the two of us headed to Balboa Park. I really didn’t know much about Balboa Park, but the pictures I found looked nice. That’s a good reason to go, right? I read a few reviews on TravelAdvisor, before our trip, but from the reviews, it seemed like everything was really spread out and required lots of walking.

Our cab driver dropped us off in front of the House of Hospitality building. We started by grabbing a coffee and muffin and sat in the square enjoying the beautiful weather and view.

San Diego Day One

I’m in love with Southern California! This trip was my first time traveling to the west coast, and Huck’s first trip since he was a child. I figured he’d love San Diego. Warm weather and more breweries than any other city in the US, what’s not to love! We planned this trip the same way we…
