Cabrillo National Monument
Cabrillo National Monument is rich with history. The first European to step onto the West Coast was Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo. He is the namesake of the monument. When visiting it is also necessary that you visit the Bayside Trail and Old Point Loma Lighthouse. The Bayside trail is just one of many trails throughout the monument. At 2.5 miles round trip, it is a trail that most anyone can complete. Old Point Loma Lighthouse is a wonderful place to visit, as it is the starting point for the Bayside Trail. The Old Point Loma Lighthouse is the highest in the U.S. It is a popular place for tourists to gather.
Spruce Street Suspension Bridge
For those who are looking for heart-racing adventure, the Spruce Street Suspension Bridge in San Diego is a perfect match for you. The bridge connects two areas. You can walk over from Mission Hills to Banker's Hill. The bridge, though maintained by staff, is not for the faint of heart. The bridge is 375 feet long and is suspended 70 feet in the air. This is a great attraction in San Diego for those who want to explore outside the box.
Sugoi Sushi & BBQ
All this talk about trails and walking should work up an appetite. That is why you should visit Sugoi Sushi & BBQ. It is hailed by many as having the best Sushi in North County. This restaurant uses fish they've caught from all over the world. Prepare for your pallet to be mesmerized
La Torta Café
This last gem of San Diego is a cute little restaurant tucked away. Despite its small size, the café boasts large taste. The bread for their Tortes is so good it could be eaten by itself. The dishes also come with fried chopped potatoes. You can taste the deliciousness through your nostrils.
