I live with my wife and kids in Virginia where I work. But every Christmas we get to travel down here to visit our San Diego SEO clients and visit my parents for a few weeks, and invariably I have a hard time going back.
There’s just a particular vibration to this city that I haven’t been able to find everywhere else.
It goes without saying then, that we spend little time at home. For however many days we remain in the city, there’s a non-stop list of places to visit, things to see, and spots that we want to hang out at.
And since I’m going back in a few days, I thought it would be a great idea to put all that nostalgia and energy in writing up a simple list with all the things I enjoy doing, and places I love visiting, every time I’m here.
So, without further ado, here are the top 5 things to do in San Diego before you leave!
This is simply one of the city’s most beautiful places. And being located right downtown San Diego, there’s just no excuse not to stop there for a while.
Most known for being the home of renowned San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park is just a 1200-acre nexus of multi-cultural attractions and natural beauty. It’s the ideal place spend an afternoon and have a picnic at while enjoying the wonderous Spanish-Renaissance architecture.
We have inspired and motivated business owners, entrepreneurs, and professionals around the world for the past few years, and we’ve designed apps that both boost brand awareness and drives productivity off the charts. However, we realized that we couldn’t help everyone. and the truth is not everyone is our match made in heaven. Therefore, we only accept new clients after an extensive screening process that helps us determine whether we will be a good fit for each other.
Coronado is my go-to beach whenever I’m around. Don’t get me wrong, Mission beach is fantastic! But I find Coronado a little more family friendly since it gets a lot less crowded, the sand is clean, and the waves calmer.
You can enjoy the natural scenery of the waves, or take a walk around Ocean Boulevard (just behind the beach) and admire the impressive collection of mansions that sit there.

Over The SEO Ninjas has done outstanding things for our business growth and our online presence. Prior to working with Over The Top, we attempted to run our own PPC campaigns with very low results (wasting a lot of money). After bringing in Over The Top, who understands our needs and is very attentive, the phone is ringing off the hook. Thank you for helping us triple our profits! We give them the highest regard for their skill set and highly recommend them for any company’s website building and online presence.
After hiring a few SEO firms over the years, with little to no results, I decided to give one more crack at it. I learned about Over The Top SEO while researching the best link building companies on google, and found myself stumbling across their website. I was introduced to the founder, Guy Sheetrit, by one of his employees, and could immediately tell my experience would be different. Guy seems to have a knowledge of SEO that far surpasses that of 99% of the SEO firms I’ve dealt with in the past, and the results speak for itself. I plan on using his services in the months to come.
Over The Top SEO chose a great name, because their results really are over the top. I worked out an estimated ROI I’d get from working with them, and the results have FAR exceeded what I thought I’d be getting. First page results all over the place, ranking for wayyyyy more phrases than I was even expecting, and the traffic has turned into a game changing amount of new business for me and my company. Thank you guys sincerely!
I was the one to locate Over the top SEO for my University and I am happy I did it. These guys are no joke, they know what they are doing from A to Z. no games, no time wasting. purely professional.
We started working with Over The Top SEO after looking for serious SEO experts, we found them in the top positions for most of the competitive words we looked up and after much consideration we decided to go with them, We can’t disclose too much but I can say that it is a beautiful relationship and we are most grateful for the technical knowledge these guys have. Overall just 10/10.
We are a fairly big company in the auto parts industry and Over The Top SEO helped us grow A LOT in the past 2 years. we would gladly recommend them anytime, anywhere.
This company is probably the best we have encountered as of yet, we have been suffering from poor “SEO” experts by 5 companies that are known out there and yet all fail to deliver and over promise the sky. With over the top we literally had 100% interaction in our campaign, we were an active part of the process and still are always in the loop. We finally saw results after several short months with a continuing growth in sales. We are so happy to have met Guy and his team of professionals, and we are not going anywhere.
We were very surprised by the way Guy, Greg, Paul and the team at Over the top SEO works, its the first time someone opens our eyes to what is happening with our campaigns and involves us deeply into the process, which now I understand the importance of why they do it they way they do, we are with OTT for more than 9 months now and we are very happy with them, they are the only company that provided us with raw results constantly.
It sounds that I am very buyest, but hee, what these guys do works. On a daily basis you see your positions improve, traffic get better and your store grow. We are happy bumping into Over The Top SEO, even though we are a dutch company they managed to get Gereedschappelijk the ranking we were looking for. And still improving…!
Really Enjoyed my experience and will continue working with Over The Top SEO in the future. Much love.
Even if you aren’t a fan of the toy, I can guarantee you and your family will have a blast once you stop by Legoland, not to mention that with the recent boost of popularity with the Lego movies, the place is bound to fascinate your kids.
An awesome waterpark, aquarium, and even a hotel you can chart your vacations at. You can enjoy all of that surrounded by impressive, giant constructions of Dinosaurs, Castles, and Rainbows, all made out of Lego.
If you enjoy Victorian-style architecture, and you love shopping, you can’t miss the opportunity to visit the Gaslamp Quarter.
Art galleries, restaurants, shopping stores, nightclubs… You can find almost any kind of place for entertainment placed along this 16-block long street, and that’s why this place earns a spot in my top 5 things to do in San Diego. Gaslamp Quarter is known to be San Diego’s go-to place for nightlife action, so if you are looking to have a good time night-out, hit the quarter at Fifth Avenue.
San Diego is well known to have several good offerings as far as marine life-themed places to visit, and while more flashy and popular venues like Sea World, but I find Birch Aquarium to be just a perfect activity to add as an ideal ending activity to a Beach day.
There aren’t many “shows” per se, and you can pretty much explore the whole thing in a couple hours tops, but it is definitively a place worth going to if you want to spend some time looking at some beautiful marine life, without having to deal with the throng of people and long lines you’d find in other similar parks.
Who knows? OTT might be the best thing that ever happened to you.
