One of my favorite things to do is all the hikes. Potato chip is a fun one (expect to stand in line for your photo), Torrey pines, iron mountain in the spring, and 3 sisters falls if you have a vehicle that can handle a unpaved road


Hi! It’s unpaved and uphill. My friends had a Jeep and we drove a Kia uphill but you could hear all the loose debris underneath the car 😖

I love the speakeasies here! Also the Asian food scene up in convoy area is insane 🤯
Noble experiment, vin de Syrah, Realm of the 52 remedies are great speakeasies.
Shanghai saloon, menya ultra ramen, taeguki KBBQ are delish but other people probably have even better recos too - there’s so much!


Omg yess another vote for the speakeasies, some really amazing ones out there!

Eat Mexican food and watch SD sports teams choke and lose


Blanket food wine and go sit on Sunset cliffs - life changing - free yoga there at 9am saturdays - mission beach this time of year no locals ride a bike down the boardwalk all the way to La Jolla stop at jrdn for lunch Saturday little Italy farmers market and brunch


Definitely the Mexican food - recently moved from the midwest and am in a whole new world!

San Diego Zoo and Padres games

Go to The Friendly's for a cheeseburger and then go to Ann's Dry Cleaning for gelato. These places are in North Park.

Friendly’s is legit.

Do all the outdoor activities possible. Also, you must eat fish tacos and cali burritos.

Mexican food! You should never miss out on this one. The. best thing here honestly.

Check out the various Farmer's Markets. La Mesa has one on Fridays from 3-7

Liberty Station public market and all the restaurants/bars surrounding it.

My favorite eats:
Wings - Dirty Birds
Burgers - Rocky’s and The Balboa
Asian - Everything on Convoy (Kbbq, hot pot, karaoke bars, etc)
Crab boil - Crab hut, crab town, submarine crab
Mexican - Carne asada fries at Humberto’s in golden hill, Fernandez Restaurant for best birria 🤤 ofc Tijuana has great (and cheap) food
Chinese - salt and pepper chicken wings at Royal Mandarin
Bars - Gaslamp, little Italy, and up and down all local beaches

Hell ya golden chopsticks is fire

Sunset sailing on San Diego Bay! Did this when I was relatively new here.

I don't know why, but the zoo has been on the top of my list years before even moving to San Diego. I saw it once on tv and have wanted to go since

After the Zoo, also hit the Safari Park in North SD.

Little story I wanted to share. I’ve never been close to one of my siblings and haven’t put effort to change that. Eg., never initiated conversations. In the past few years I’ve felt convicted to try to be more loving. I didn’t feel I liked her, but recognized my responsibility by being cold, even though it was subconscious and not quite intentional. So anyway, I’ve been trying, with much prayer. Recently she reached out asking me for something major and I started to feel bitter. *Continued

Hi all! My bf recently got a job at Apple and we will be moving to SD from NYC. We have never been to SD before, so looking for any kind of recommendations of areas for living (safe, chill vibes, restaurants/bars nearby). We both are in our late 20s. Also, what platform is the best to look for apartments for rent? Thank you!!


So, this is a little awkward, but I recently moved to SD for a fresh start, and honestly, I love this city. My problem is I have been more of a homebody since I moved here and I'm a little intimidated to go out and meet people because I don't feel like I fit in here. I am overweight and this city is full of active, and attractive people. I guess I am wondering what my experience would be if I got out more? I feel like people look at me when I'm in public because I stand out due to my size.

Hello people of San Diego! Would love to hear how y’all are affording to live here comfortably. Please state your company, position, TC, YOE, and do you have a side hustle?

I’d like to “make it” here but if it means switching career to make money I’d like to get an idea to make the right job change.
