What do you think of when you hear the term surf? Does your mind immediately go to the famous surf and turf meal–a delicious steak and lobster? Or maybe your brain conjures images of the real deal: beautiful sandy beaches and deep-water harbors, like those along the coast of the Pacific Ocean in sunny San Diego?  Regardless of which category you fall into, San Diego is the perfect place to make either version of surf come to life! San Diego is the eighth-largest city in the United States and features a year-round mild climate, perfect for learning to surf at one of the many surf schools on the golden coast.  Classes will include everything you need to know to ride those foamy waves, including:  fundamentals, water safety, ocean climate, and optimum conditions.  Many of the surfing schools include off-season and family rates too, so it can be a fun and affordable activity for everyone in your group!  You can also take snorkeling or scuba diving lessons and see what the Pacific has to offer from the bottom up. Special scuba classes even allow you to dive at night for a more exciting and one-of-a-kind adventure. San Diego is a scuba diving hotspot for vacationers, especially with the gorgeous La Jolla Cove being the number one dive site in all of California.

Even if you’re not one to dive right into the ocean you can still enjoy its amenities, such as walking barefoot on the beach or watching some of the most magnificent sunsets you will ever see.  Many five-star restaurants also surround the beach front so you can partake in great food experiences–like fulfilling that surf and turf craving!  Many San Diegan restaurants include live bands and salsa lessons so you can really make the most of a single evening out in this fantastic city.
