San Diego is an incredible city that offers much to do and see, which is great if you are staying at one of the discount hotels in San Diego. One thing in particular that makes San Diego such a unique city to visit is the incredible views it offers to locals and tourists alike. Here are five of the best scenic views in San Diego.

First on the list is Balboa Park. Not only is Balboa Park already an excellent place to visit as it is home to the San Diego Zoo as well as a number of museums, it is also a beautiful park. Walk around and admire the architectural grandeur of the buildings, the lush gardens and the stunning landscapes. The grounds are open 24 hours a day so feel free to stop by at this spectacular park whenever suits you best.

Next on the list is Torrey Pines State Beach. This fantastic beach offers the best of both worlds. If you are looking for a traditional beach experience with lots of sand and surf, Torrey Pines State Beach is the place to go. However, nearby is the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve Park. Here, you can enjoy pine forests, canyons, and a number of hiking trails that lead to breathtaking views of the ocean from the bluffs.

La Jolla is one of the most popular beach destinations in all of Southern California, but don’t let the fear of crowds stop you from visiting. With a dramatic coastline that offers incredible views, La Jolla is surrounded by the sea on three sides and is backed by the beautiful slopes of Mt. Soledad. Even the beach town, with its Mediterranean feel, is pleasing to the eye.

Pacific Beach is the place to be if you’re looking for miles of beach to enjoy. With a bustling boardwalk and an atmosphere that can’t be beat, Pacific Beach is another must on your to do list. Mostly catering to young adults and college students, this beach not not only a great place for people watching, it is also a great place to have fun in the sun.

While a trip to Point Loma Beaches is not exactly suited for swimming, don’t let that stop you from visiting. With large waves that crash upon rocks and secret cliffs, Point Loma provides the perfect opportunity to sit back and reflect on the grandeur of nature. You can even explore the tidepools that are in the rocky reefs.
