Not many places in the world have ‘it’, but I can tell you, San Diego is one of those destinations. What exactly do I mean by ‘it’? A place which has it all; beaches, nightlife, food, heritage, history and nature. Yes, cramming the previous into one city is possible. Few places in the world have it all, but San Diego does.
As the story goes, American cities are hardly known for being budget backpacker friendly destinations. Not surprisingly money conscious travellers tend to avoid the USA. Having come from Coachella, we knew how expensive things can get in the USA. Don’t get me wrong, even with the tightest of penny-pinching, your budget will be higher in San Diego than in Hanoi, Vietnam for instance. Having said that, with the right knowledge and know-how you can have a bank account friendly stay and keep the spending to a minimum in San Diego.
