Marcela Valladolid Guides to the Good Stuff

Whether on a plate or in a club, San Diego has a sizzle all its own.

With an abundance of locally grown fresh produce and seafood right off the dock, San Diego has attracted the hottest chefs who now call this city home. From fish tacos to decadent ten-course culinary adventures, San Diego restaurants can satisfy every craving.

And when the sun goes down, the city comes alive at rooftop bars, hot nightclubs featuring celebrity DJ's, moody jazz clubs and iconic rock venues. The heart of the action is found in downtown's walkable Gaslamp Quarter, where the city streets are filled with outdoor bistros and party revelers. So bring your dance shoes and get ready to celebrate as you hit the streets in San Diego.
