Both spots are great in your 20s so you can’t go wrong. I met my husband on Mission Beach (right next to Pacific Beach lol). We lived in SD for 15 years. The people can be sketchy there, tho. My favorite area is La Jolla/Del Mar. Downtown La Jolla has so many cute little boutique shops and restaurants/bars- lots to do on foot. Have a great time!

As someone who lived in SD for a few years, I would rank them: 1) La Jolla hands down if you have the money - it's a great place to walk around with lots of restaurants, beach and vista points, and hotel options 2) Del Mar is a good option, but you need to be picky about where you stay if you won't have a car because a lot of things aren't super close together 3) PB/OB/MB are really touristy, full of early 20s folk getting wasted, and there's lots of homeless people - I honestly wouldn't recommend it

Thank you! Booked half the time in Coronado and half in La Jolla - lmk if you have any food, activity, etc. recs :)

Coronado Brewing - I used to live a block getting there and I miss it so much (if you're at the Marriott, it's ~4 blocks), and the Hotel Del is worth getting drinks at even if you aren't staying there.

Oh yes- Coronado is amazing place. Entirely walkable. At the Hotel Del? Or there is a beautiful Loewe’s there?
