San Diego has many amazing cafe's, coffee shops, and restaurants

April 9, 2019
The beautiful City of San Diego has many options to choose from for dining, coffee shops, and cafe's. Whether you have company in town, have a meeting, or simply running errands there is a place for everyone to enjoy. We took friends visiting from Switzerland to Cafe 21 for breakfast and the food, drinks, and atomosphere were great. In addition, the S3 Coffee Bar is unique and fun offering rainbow lattes on the weekend, brunch, cookies, and so much more.

Solana Beach and Encinitas are two of the best areas in San Diego

March 18, 2019
It was another beautiful Sunday in San Diego County right after a storm came through. We decided to take a short drive to Solana Beach to take a walk along the water. Fletcher Cove Park was beautiful and has a ramp leading straight to the sand, but we ended up venturing over to the long stairway at Del Mar Shores instead. The beach was very clean and quiet. Following our amazing time at the beach we made our way to Pannikin Coffee & Tea in Encinitas. I have never been to a coffee shop with so many different treats and sweets to choose from. The coffee tasted great and the atmosphere was perfect. In addition, there is a little tea shop with crafts and items for sale.

Great experience at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa

February 7, 2019
On a beautiful January day we decided to drive about an hour away to stay at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa. It's at the top of a hill overlooking the ocean and Dana Point harbor. This is a very nice hotel with many activities for kids. The harbor is a 10 minute walk where guests can enjoy many restaurants and bars. There is two pools one of which has a large hot tub, children's pool, and play area. Our room had two sliding glass doors that opened up to a large patio and view of the ocean. The staff was very friendly and beyond helpful. The breakfast buffet is a must with salmon, eggs benedict, omelets, fruit, and the list goes on. Book a room here: Laguna Cliffs Marriott.

Welcome to 2019! Last year was full of wonderful experiences with amazing family, friends, and clients. One of the fun things we did was take our kids to iFLY San Diego to try indoor skydiving. They have a wonderful monthly program for kids and adults. The instructors are all very experienced, understanding, friendly, and helpful. The flight school is a great program for kids that want to go weekly. They provide pizza, drinks, and a fun easygoing environment.

California Wolf Center, Julian, and San Vicente Resort

December 3, 2018
We had a fun weekend celebrating my daughter's birthday in Julian. The brief trip started out with a visit to the California Wolf Center. The center is commited to helping wild wolves return to their natural habitats. There were just a few wolves on exhibit one of which was the Mexican wolf. The property was near a campground and those visiting said they could hear the wolves howling throughout the night. Those wishing to visit must call the center well in advance to book either a public or private tour. Visit their website at for more information. We then headed over to the little town of Julian where we visited many shops, had lunch at a fun diner, and ate some famous apple pie. Learn more about Julian by clicking here. After wearing the kids out we drove 30 minutes to San Vicente Resort in Ramona. The check-in process was quick and easy allowing for plenty of time to enjoy the large pool before dinner. Our room had a view of the golf course and the kids enjoyed playing on the patio and green grass. To celebrate, golf, and play at San Vicente Resort visit their website at


La Mesa Oktoberfest is a great time for people of all ages

November 1, 2018
My family finally made it to the La Mesa Oktoberfest this year, we were able to see a friend perform in his band along with other talented musicians. We were amazed by all of the entertainment offered including rides, food, live music, and of course beer. This event has been going on since 1973 and attracts people from all over San Diego County. Play Glücklich games, take the kids over to the German Kinder Karneval, grab food from the many food booths and food trucks, enjoy a drink from the Hofbrauhaus Biergarten, and much more. One of my favorite things was watching the skilled street chalk artists. They offer a VIP pass with a seperate enterence, additional restrooms, front of the line privileges, and many other benefits. Visit for dates and directions.

The Del Mar Racetrack is one of the best summer hangouts in San Diego

September 27, 2018
If you are looking for shade, drinks, entertainment, food, and popular concerts make your way down to the Del Mar Racetracks. Enjoy a Mint Julep cocktail and beer battered fish tacos at Cafe Del Sol located trackside in the Clubhouse Level 1. There are many food stations and stands around the track. Concerts are free with admission and include big performers. The valet is pricey at $25 so bring cash. Many people choose to take the Amtrak surf liner down to Solana Beach, then a shuttle to the races. As far as betting, there is an area where you can get a close look at all of the horses before placing bets and some take advantage of the class offered to learn more about the process. View the races from the many screens and televisions scattered around the stadium. Remember to get a Diamond Club card to get half off of admission. The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club is located on the 5th floor inside Del Mar Horse track and there is a dress code. Find out when the fall racing festival begins by visiting their website at

Comic-Con is one of the biggest events in San Diego

July 30, 2018
After many years of enjoying the people watching, free activities, and events outside of the convention center in downtown San Diego where Comic-Con is held, we finally secured a badge in 2018. My wife was able to bring our children to this huge and exciting event because of the generous child policy allowing each badge holder to bring two children, free, under 12 yeas old. Inside the convention center it is very crowded and attendees will have the opportunity to see thousands of booths related to many aspects of the comic world. For anyone planning to attend this highly anticipated event I suggest wearing very comfortable shoes, bring snacks, water bottles, and definitely a phone charger. In order to get a badge it's essential to sign up on their website at for a member ID, then watch your email closely for further instruction. In addition, make sure to apply for exclusive signings and merchandise through their website.
