City advice

Getting around
Rent a car
San Diego County has terrible public trasnportation. Uber/Lyft are easy to access, but a car is best unless you're going to be drinking while out.
Ways to save
Free, free, free!
There are so many free things to do and see in San Diego county. Take the time to get out and see all the terrain we have to offer. Want to hike, bike, enjoy beach, listen to the music, watch paragliders, or play in the park? It all happens throughout the county all year! Just ask!
What to pack
Big temperature swings
The temperature between day and night can have 40-degree swings. We also have a large difference between coastal adn inland areas. Lots of light layers are the San Diego Way!
