If you have just a few days for a getaway, come travel to San Diego for a long weekend filled with fun. Our beautiful scenery, culture, and historic sites will entrance you, and you'll want to come back again to explore some more. Here's our San Diego travel guide for making the most of your short stay:
Get here as early as you can and start enjoying the scenery right here at Humphreys Half Moon Inn. Our San Diego hotel is just three miles from the airport, so you'll be unpacked in no time. Ease into your vacation; rather than heading straight into town for sightseeing, shake off your stress by strolling or biking our paths, or waste no time before splashing into our pool. Enjoy our restaurant for dinner with a waterside view, followed by music and dancing in our club.
Spend today exploring two of San Diego's major attractions. Balboa Park is filled with beautiful palm trees and gardens, and you can hike or bike trails to enjoy the outdoor scenery. Or find more beauty indoors, in the San Diego Museum of Art, the Timken Museum of Art, and the Museum of Photographic Arts. You can indulge your special interests at the Automotive Museum, the Model Railroad Museum, or the Air & Space Museum.
Spend the night exploring San Diego's historic Gaslamp District. Beautifully preserved Victorian buildings have been repurposed as boutiques, restaurants, and nightclubs.
Explore two diverse San Diego neighborhoods. Head to Old Town State Historic Park in the morning and spend time exploring its preserved homes and museums that show the city's life in the early parts of its history. This is the perfect place for a genuine Mexican lunch.
Then head to modern, upscale La Jolla. Browse the art galleries and boutiques; stroll along the cliffs to listen to the roar of the ocean and the sea lions' barking. Enjoy dinner in a restaurant near the water.
Plan your departure for late in the day and spend the morning lazing on one of San Diego's beaches. Play in the sand or tackle the surf, via surfboard, windsurfing, or just swimming. Then rinse off and head a short distance to the airport. We're sorry to see you go so soon and hope your short San Diego stay makes you want to come back and visit again. Humphreys Half Moon Inn is near all the rest of San Diego's attractions, like SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo, and more. Plan another long weekend visit with us to see everything you didn't take in this time.
