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.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
