Corvette Diner

If you’re looking to experience a blast from the past, check out the modern version of a 1950’s diner in Liberty Station: the Corvette Diner. Walking into the main entrance, you’ll be greeted with a vintage Corvette just inside the door, along with a ton of neon signs and 1950’s kitschy memorabilia pretty much splattered on the walls throughout the

Fault Line Park

Southern California has its faults—figurative and literal. In this case, it’s the Rose Canyon Fault that runs right through the heart of San Diego and is adjacent to the new 45-story apartment building, Pinnacle on the Park. In fact, the building’s developers were the ones who created and will maintain the park. The park is situated on 14th Street between

Presidio & Junípero Serra Museum

Perched on a hill overlooking Mission Valley is the site of San Diego’s first settlement—the Presidio—and the mission-like museum to Father Junípero Serra. When Spain finally decided to settle San Diego more than 200 years after Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo first landed in the harbor in 1542, they placed their settlement atop this hill just northeast of present-day Old Town in

Pearson Deli

Pearson Deli on Shelter Island Drive in Point Loma is something you’ll miss if you blink as you drive by, but you shouldn’t. It’s a small deli at the head of the Pearson Fuel Pier (an odd combination, I know) where many of the local yacht brokers and boat repair yard workers alike will stop for breakfast or lunch. If

Spanish Village Art Center

Tucked between the San Diego Natural History Museum and the San Diego Zoo is the Spanish Village Art Center with its numerous studios and galleries. Just walking into the central plaza of the center is a visual delight, with the hand-painted concrete, displayed art, and, right now, the jacaranda and bougainvillea in bloom. The eye-popping colors are reason enough for
