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.

Looking for a fun family event in San Diego? Visit the Lakeside Rodeo.

April 30, 2018
Good family fun at the 54th Annual Lakeside Rodeo. My daughter loves horses, so despite living in the city we try to find fun events in San Diego to be in the country and around horses. This is the first visit to the Lakeside Rodeo, not only is this a fun event, but it is a non-profit organization that donates funds to the youth of Lakeside each year.

There was plenty of parking for a fee of $5. We enjoyed the booths with cowboy hats and accessories for sale, along with spinning wheels for prizes. My son won a hat from RDO equipment. The food was affordable including beer, coffee, hot cocoa, ice cream, popcorn, and other snacks.

According to their website,, "Throughout the past four decades, under the leadership of the El Capitan Stadium Association, the rodeo has raised over $2 million for the youth of Lakeside, benefiting such local programs as Little League, Pop Warner, Boys & Girls Club..." Keep an eye out for dates to be announced for the 2019 Lakeside Rodeo. Bring the family and have a great time!

The Del Coronado is a grand hotel on the charming island of Coronado

February 27, 2018
The Hotel Del Coronado brings back great memories for me as I was a waiter there while getting my Bachelors in Real Estate and Finance years ago. Guests can enjoy perfect views of the ocean and don't soon forget the caged elevator with a very friendly operator. This beautiful Victorian hotel is situated on 28 pristine oceanfront acres. Enjoy several restaurants and bars including the Babcock & Story Bar, Crown Room Brunch, Sheerwater, Sun Deck, Eno, Sunset Bar, and a few others like the Splash Bar & Deli. This year the hotel celebrates it's 130th anniversary and has had many famous guests like Frank Sinatra, Charlie Chaplin, and John Wayne to name a few. A couple movies were filmed at the Del as well. The most requested room #3327 is said to have a ghost because a guest by the name of Kate Morgan was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1892. In the gift shop area inside guests will find historical photographs and learn more about the hotels past. The below pictures were captured this month (February 2018) on a day off of school with the kids. For more information on The Hotel Del Coronado click here.

Black's Beach is perfect for surfing and enjoying the sun

January 31, 2018
Black's Beach is a beautiful place to visit for a surf session or to relax on the sand. To access this incredible beach walk down the paved road near La Jolla Shores Road or hike down the dirt trail by the Torrey Pines Glider Port. There is another small path mostly used by surfers. If going with small children it may be better to take the paved road because it's a smoother walk, there is restrooms at the end before going down to the beach, and this is the part of the beach that nudity is not allowed. Lifeguards do drive up and down the beach which is nice because there is strong rip currents that people need to be aware of. There is a small shack on the side of the cliff to climb up and enjoy a small amount of shade. If you want to explore this beach make sure to walk to the oceanfront house called The Bell Pavillion also known as The Mushroom House.

Best of the best at Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad

December 22, 2017
While previewing properties in Carlsbad for clients I visited the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort to see the beautiful grounds during Christmastime. Amazing decorations and atmosphere, not to mention the people were extremely friendly from the valet staff to the concierge. If you are local to San Diego this is the perfect place for a staycation or drop-in visit for a cocktail or appetizer. If staying for the night there is a parking fee, however if you are just visiting for a few hours they happily valet for free. They host many events including meetings and celebrations. The holiday season is a great time of year to visit the Four Season's and has unique dining options like High Tea, live entertainment in the Park Lounge, and gingerbread classes. Get more information by visiting This year executive Pastry Chef Christophe Rull and his team designed an incredible chocolate Christmas tree display.
