Girls can always use a getaway. So, gather up your crew and head to sunny San Diego for a weekend of dining, dancing, shopping, and relaxing. Need some inspiration? Here are 10 ideas for female-friendly fun.
Start your day with a stop at, Better Buzz Coffee with locations throughout San Diego County and see why it is a local favorite. Head to La Jolla for a glorious aerial yoga session on the rooftop of Trilogy Sanctuary, a wellness center with a great menu of vegan snacks and shared plates. Or exposure yourself to the vibrational powers of crystal singing bowls, gongs and tuning forks during a yin yoga and sound healing class with Zen Soul Balance at Riffs Studios.
Once you have shopped your way through La Jolla’s many home design, clothing and art shops, don’t forget to wander west towards La Jolla Cove for an unmatched view of the Pacific. Look for seals on the bluffs and SCUBA divers exploring the caves. Thirsty after all that exploring? You can’t beat the view while sipping cocktails at Cusp Dining & Drinks atop Hotel La Jolla. Or, explore local wineries with San Diego Beer, Wine & Spirits Tours, or get a dose of girl power at You & Yours Distilling Co., a female-owned vodka and gin distillery and tasting room in the East Village.
For a brunch menu to die for, visit Madison in hip University Heights. Think waffled churro sticks, avocado toast points, carnitas shakshuka, and mimosas for days. Check out elaborately decorated Bombay in the lively Hillcrest neighborhood for dinner and a show. Enjoy classic Indian fare while belly dancers entertain and Bollywood movies play in the background. Have a sweet tooth? Chocolat’s bistros in Hillcrest and downtown offer housemade gelato, a crème brulee, and of course, lots and lots of chocolate. The downtown location is open late on weekends.
Get dressed to the nines and dance the night away at Omnia or Parq, two nightclubs in the Gaslamp Quarter or Kettner Exchange in Little Italy with its see-and-be-seen rooftop deck. For a more eclectic evening try Vin de Syrah, an underground wine lounge with burlesque shows, tarot readings, special guests, and live music.
