We surveyed our local experts (aka, the RAR team) to tell us their favorite hidden gems for summer fun and we are sharing them with you! Enjoy this list of outdoor activities that will turn your summer to average to extraordinary.  

Take a Hike… Literally

Chris, General Manager of the Lafayette Hotel, recommends hiking San Diego as a cure to excite any dull summer day. This is the perfect activity if you are looking to stay active and on budget this summer. Our favorite hiking location in San Diego is the 5,800-acre Mission Trails Regional Park. Trail maps can be found at the Mission Trails Regional Park website.

The Perfect Casual Summer Afternoon or Evening

Adam, General Manager at The Keating Hotel’s favorite local spot in San Diego is Liberty Station and Liberty Public Market. His favorite thing to do is to take his girls skating down the long paths along the canal, to the playgrounds right on the water and then over the Public Market where everyone gets to choose what they want to eat. In the cooler summer nights you can make use of the fire-pit and eat outside and watch the planes fly over the city.Check it out at libertystation.com

Cures for Summer Cravings 

David, Marketing Manager at the Lafayette Hotel, never gets hungry or angry because when hunger strikes he gets in line at Los Quatros Milpas and all is well in the world. Well… the tacos can’t cure all your problems but you will leave with a full stomach and happy face. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, that’s why Los Quatros Milpas is our top pick for lunch when you find yourself near downtown San Diego. Just remember to bring cash! Los Quatros Milpas is located at 1857 Logan Ave, San Diego, CA 92113

New Brews in Del Mar

The Del Mar Crew at Homewood Suites and Hilton Garden Inn San Diego/ Del Mar’s newest favorite spot is Viewpoint Brewing Company, the 1st brewery in Del Mar. The beautifully designed tasting room and restaurant features spectacular views of the San Dieguito Lagoon. For more details and to check out the menu visit viewpointbrewing.com

Cruise up the Coast 

Port’s O’ Call Marketplace is Nick’s go-to spot on his day off when he is not working as General Manager of Best Western San Pedro. Port’s O’ Call is home to an assortment of shops and variety of restaurants. If you have more time to spare you can take a cruise or go on a deep sea sport fishing boat trip. for more information visit San Pedro.com.
