San Diego Day 1: From Mimosas to Sunset

From bottomless mimosas to the prettiest sunset I’ve ever seen, San Diego captured my heart within hours. California has been a dream destination of mine and I’m so happy to say I was not disappointed. Staying in Pacific Beach, we spent our first day of spring break eating on the main strip and laying in the sun.

Breakfast.

Backyard Kitchen & Tap has amazing brunch deals on Saturdays. Bottomless mimosas and bottomless pancakes for $15 each. The mimosa station was stocked with multiple fruit juices (mango, pineapple, pear, peach) and a wide selection of candy. I got an acai bowl with peanut butter, bananas, and fresh berries. Breakfast was refreshing and the atmosphere was energetic.

Our Day.

We spent our day popping into cute shops in town and laying on the beach. Surrounded by cliffs, flowers, palm trees, and magnificent houses made a beautiful backdrop for our beautiful day.

Dinner.

For dinner we headed down to Taco Surf, a cheap but delicious spot. All of the food offered here is great quality and since San Diego is so close to the border, it’s all authentic Mexican food. I ordered two crispy chicken tacos and a drink for $10. This was a perfect dining option for our college-student wallets. The portions were much bigger than expected, which also made this a perfect spot for our hungry appetites.

Sunset.

The sunset was breathtaking. We took to the pier to watch surfers catch waves as the sky turned a yellowish orange. As the sun lowered, we could see the sun’s rays. We stayed outside and soaked the view in until the sky turned a navy blue.

Nighttime.

My boyfriend and I took a walk on the strip at night to grab some ice cream from The Baked Bear, known for their cookie ice cream sandwiches. Being St. Patrick’s day weekend, the strip was buzzing with night life and there was no shortage of people. Back in the air bnb, the girls and I got away from the hustle and bustle, ending our night with some tea and snacks.

San Diego is everything I hoped for and more. If you’re looking to visit the area, I recommend staying in Pacific Beach just 20 minutes away from downtown and La Jolla Cove.

More to come soon!
