San Diego Deserves A Spot On Your Travel Destination Bucket List

These are just a few of San Diego's most iconic destinations.

San Diego Deserves A Spot On Your Travel Destination Bucket List

San Diego, alongside New York City and Chicago, is one of the most sought after cities to visit in the U.S. San Diego has a lot to offer for restaurants and tourist destinations, but what really makes the trip worth it is the perfect weather and these five known, and not so well known spots in town.

Balboa Park.

Balboa park consists of, well a park, but also many museums, restaurants, and a botanical garden (shown above). At night the whole park is lit up with very bright lights that accentuates the beautiful architecture.

La Jolla Cove.


La Jolla is well known for its fancy restaurants and houses, but the main attraction is the cove. There you can find seals lounging on the beach of the cove. If you're lucky enough to catch a low tide you can walk down the cliffs ever so carefully to find yourself looking up to one of the most spectacular cliffside around.

Sunset Cliffs.

Sunset Cliffs are well described by its name, the perfect cliff to catch the beautiful sunsets that San Diego has to offer. in addition to the beautiful sunsets, you can find yourself able to jump off these cliffs and explore the little caves that are well preserved in the cliffs, although you have to be careful, when it is low tide I would not plan on jumping due to the water level being so low, when its high tide, feel free to take a leap of faith into this beautiful sunset cliffside.

Gaslamp Quarter


After your all-day adventure on the coast, make sure to stop by the Gaslamp District to either relax at a restaurant or if you want to have an exciting night there's plenty of nightclubs and bars that you can hop to and from. My personal recommendations for night time activities would be; Omnia night club and prohibition lounge, the perfect place to have a great night out.

SS Monte Carlo

In 1937, the concrete ship broke from its anchor in Coronado and washed ashore. The ship can be seen at low tide, and can also be seen during storms. The beach where the ship washed up is called "Shipwreck Beach." Super cool for pictures and a little known gem in San Diego.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
