What are the best places to stay in San Diego?
The Gaslamp Quarter is one of San Diego’s oldest neighbourhoods and is located in Downtown. It was first developed in 1867 and features Victorian-style architecture. The Gaslamp Quarter is teeming with attractions and cultural activities, including Seaport Village, Maritime Museum of San Diego, and Petco Park where the San Diego Padres play. It’s also one of the main shopping, dining, and nightlife hubs to explore while visiting California on cheap flights to San Diego. Browse accommodation in the Gaslamp Quarter if you’re hoping to stay in the centre of the action while holidaying on flights to San Diego.
Are you more interested in the rugged coastline of San Diego rather than the city? Consider a hotel room in the coastal suburb of La Jolla after you book return flights to San Diego. The beaches are the main draw to La Jolla, and it’s one of the most popular San Diego neighbourhoods for surfing, paddleboarding, snorkelling, and kayaking. Visit the main La Jolla Shores Beach and other coastal spots like La Jolla Cove where you can watch sea lions, La Jolla Underwater Park to snorkel with harmless leopard sharks, and the dramatic Sunny Jim Sea Cave. La Jolla is only a 20-minute drive into the city, so you won’t be far from Downtown.
Coronado is a stone’s throw away from Downtown, but it feels more like a quaint seaside village than part of a major city. It’s a popular place to stay in between return flights to San Diego if you want to be super central but also right on the ocean. Spend time enjoying the 2.4-kilometre (1.5-mile) Coronado Beach, and take a scenic walk along Coronado’s boardwalk. Coronado is one of San Diego’s most upscale suburbs, and you’ll find many high-end restaurants along the oceanfront. Other Coronado attractions to enjoy while holidaying on flights to San Diego include Bayview Park and Coronado Museum of History and Art.
