5 Things to Do On Your San Diego Day Trip

Are you looking for the perfect way to show off your new Mercedes-Benz? How about a day trip too beautiful San Diego, just for starters? If that sounds like a good idea to you, then take a look at our list of the five best things to do on your next drive to Southern California.

Take a Tour

San Diego offers access to so much stunning scenic beauty it can be difficult to know where to start. These tours can help put you on the right track:

  • Living Coast Discovery Center
  • Old Town Trolley Tours
  • Whale Watching Excursions
  • Biking Tours of the City
  • High Adventure Helicopter Tours

Choose guided or self-guided tours and take your time getting to know Beach City.

Go Shopping

A little retail therapy might be just what you need to shake off the cobwebs and, thanks to the wide range of options in the city, you can choose from vintage shops to national retailers like:

  • Bloomingdales
  • Caroline Herrera
  • Emporio Armani
  • Neiman Marcus

And, of course, exclusive boutiques that specialize in hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind merchandise, too.

Celebrate the Arts

San Diego has a thriving arts scene that draws visitors from San Diego, Escondido, and beyond. Among the dozens of venues and festivals you can experience include:

  • USS Midway Museum
  • Arts District Liberty Station
  • Cabrillo National Monument
  • Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala
  • San Diego Art Walk

And these are just the beginning!

Brave the Tourist Attractions

While many cities offer special attractions to bring in visitors, few can measure up to San Diego’s spectacular offerings, like:

  • San Diego Zoo
  • Disneyland
  • Balboa Park

You can even enjoy free attractions like the Gaslamp Quarter if you’re traveling on a budget or want to save funds for Mercedes-Benz accessories.

Enjoy the Nightlife

Of course, if you’re traveling without children, there’s even more to do when the sun goes down, such as:

  • Hit the Casinos
  • Explore Nightclubs
  • Find a New Favorite Pub
  • Catch a World-Class Concert

The only limit to the fun you’ll have is your imagination.

What is Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive?

Whether you’re venturing through San Diego or down rainy highways, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive offers added driving confidence. Many new Mercedes-Benz vehicles offer this advanced system to give drivers more traction and control in harsh conditions. What can 4MATIC® do? It provides strong grip in adverse weather by allocating power to the wheels that need it most while maintaining excellent fuel economy. Learn more about Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® all-wheel drive below!

How Does 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive Work?

The 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system works in the following ways:

  • The force sent to your car’s tires impacts braking, acceleration, and steering. The 4MATIC® system distributes power to all four wheels — not just the front or rear — thereby giving your vehicle greater power on Escondido roads.
  • Your car’s outside and inside wheels rotate at different speeds during cornering, because the outside wheels’ paths are longer. The 4MATIC® system senses and can help correct wheel-spin.
  • Road surfaces can change on a dime. Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® is designed to react quickly by constantly monitoring the roads and can adjust engine power as needed for gravelly, rainy, or icy conditions.
  • Whether you’re cruising through San Marcos or hitting the track, 4MATIC® all-wheel can distribute different torque amounts to each wheel for sportier handling.

Mercedes-Benz Vehicles with 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive

This advanced system can be had across the lineup, from the C-Class Sedan to the GLE SUV. Here’s a more comprehensive list:

  • Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 4MATIC® Coupe
  • Mercedes-Benz C 300 4MATIC® Coupe, Sedan, and Cabriolet
  • Mercedes-Benz E 300 4MATIC® Sedan
  • Mercedes-Benz E 400 4MATIC® Coupe, Sedan, Wagon, and Cabriolet
  • Mercedes-Benz CLS 550 4MATIC® Coupe
  • Mercedes-Benz S 450 4MATIC® Sedan
  • Mercedes-Benz S 560 4MATIC® Coupe and Sedan
  • Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 4MATIC® SUV
  • Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 4MATIC® SUV and Coupe

  • Mercedes-Benz GLE 550e Plug-In Hybrid 4MATIC® SUV
  • Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 4MATIC® SUV
  • Mercedes-Benz GLS 550 4MATIC® SUV
