San Diego, CA

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.
