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. The tree will be up until early January 2018 if you want to check it out.

The area of Bay Park in San Diego is a much desired area in San Diego.

November 30, 2017
The area of Bay Park in San Diego is a much desired area in San Diego. There are some very popular businesses and shops such as Siesel's Meats, Starbucks, Sprouts, Bay Park Coffee, Local Krave, Bull's Smokin BBQ, JV's Mexican Food, Luce Bar & Kitchen, and Bird's Surf Shed. Having raised my kids in the area for the last 10 years I can attest to the fact that this is a very tight knit community. I see many neighbors helping neighbors and several businesses donating to local schools. In addition, it takes less than 15 minutes to get to Pacific Beach where you will find many great shops, restaurants, and of course the big beautiful beach where you can take a walk or run on the boardwalk. This is an affordable area for families that want to live within close driving distance to the beach.

Water activities in San Diego are endless

September 29, 2017
People move to San Diego everyday to be near the ocean and enjoy the beautiful weather. I moved to San Diego almost 30 years ago to surf and still love it to this day. My favorite things to do in San Diego are surfing, fishing, and having fun on a boat. Thankfully I have taken full advantage of Freedom Boat Club in San Diego, which is "designed for folks who want to access a versatile fleet of boats on a regular basis, at an affordable cost of entry." My family and I have made memories to last a life time fishing, cruising, and tubing out on the bay and in the ocean. If you are considering joining and have questions give me a call at 619-339-7334 or visit and let them know I referred you.

Don't know how to surf? San Diego Surf School can help with that. Some of the most popular San Diego surf breaks are in Imperial Beach, Sunset Cliffs, Ocean Beach Pier, Pacific Beach, and Windansea in La Jolla.

Last but not least, last year I tried the Jetpack flight at Mission Bay Sports Center on Santa Clara Place in Mission Beach. The instructor was great and because of his direction I was able to go higher than I expected and had an absolute blast. Book a flight by visiting

Open Air Theatre at San Diego State University is an awesome venue.

July 31, 2017
We were happy to finally go to a concert at the Open Air Theatre at San Diego State University. It was a beautiful Thursday night to hear great music. We took the Trolley to avoid traffic and parking issues and what a nice ride it was with beautiful views of San Diego. Despite it being a fairly popular band there was a lot of open seats, so much so that they were giving away tickets closer to the stage to guests seated in higher rows. Very nice venue with food and drinks for sale as well as conveniently located bathrooms on both sides and at the top and towards the middle. If you are looking for something fun to do in San Diego check out the schedule for Open Air Theatre. For a list of events, click here.

What better to do with family in town than to visit the Children's Pool in La Jolla.

June 30, 2017
The Children's Pool in La Jolla on Coast Blvd is easy to get to and provides an amazing view of seals and the water. The wall was built to break the waves and create a place for children to swim in the ocean. The walkway allows for spectacular views of the area and ocean. Visitors may feel mislead by the name as it is not really a place for children to swim due to all of the seals, although it was originally created for kids and families. We drove further South and found a beautiful quiet beach. Paradise right here in La Jolla!

Take a day trip to Lake Cuyamaca and Julian to get away from it all

May 31, 2017
Living in San Diego we get a lot of visitors from friends and family living in other states. There are so many places in and around San Diego County for our guests to see. A short trip to Lake Cuyamaca and Julian is a great way to get out of the city and enjoy the countryside. About an hour from Downtown San Diego you will find a little restaurant and store with a beautiful view of Lake Cuyamaca. Enjoy home made chicken pot pies, a friendly staff, and good service. Drive another 15 minutes from the restaurant and arrive in the town of Julian. Grab an iced coffee from the little coffee shop as you enter and don't forget to try the famous apples pies.

One of the best views and areas in San Diego is Torrey Pines Gliderport!

April 30, 2017
What better place to spend our 2017 Easter than at the beautiful Torrey Pines Gliderport! There was a live band playing, along with many people paragliding and hang gliding. Bring family, friends, or visitors to enjoy the views and have a bite to eat at The Cliffhanger Café which sits atop the cliffs of Torrey Pines. Some see whales and dolphins from the outdoor dining area.

After a little snack we hiked down to Blacks Beach adding to our already terrific day. Bring a hat, sunglasses, and water to enjoy this great adventure. It's a great clothing optional beach, so remember this if you bring young kids. Get out there and enjoy the beautiful San Diego weather.
