In San Diego Serenade, Tom Waits said “I never saw my hometown until I stayed away too long.” He must have finally seen what the us see.
With a story book climate and 70 miles of pristine beaches, San Deigos inhabitants have an existence that most of us only dream of. This place is what vacations are made of, year-round. The only U.S. city said to have more pleasant weather conditions than San Diego is LA. But, San Diego is more scenic, less polluted, and definitely has better traffic conditions. Plus, they know a thing or two about craft beer and a good bottle of wine.
392 square miles of attainable paradise make San Diego the second largest city in California. But when it comes to quality of life, they’re second to none. Beautiful greenery, sandy beaches, and pristine views make San Diego one of the best places California has to offer for a good stiff drink.
The downtown area of San Diego, as well as Gaslamp Quarter, were once home to 19th century saloons and speakeasies. Prohibition brought dark days across America. But, in typical San Diego style, their light shone bright, and their speakeasies and saloons thrived. To this day, the many taverns and bars of San Diego carry on the tradition of keeping guests well lubricated.
With such beautiful beaches and scenery all around, you might want to keep it simple. Bring your cocktail consumption to the shores of the Pacific and enjoy the sunset. Either way, we can all learn how to live a little better from San Diego, California. Life is but a beach chair here and it’s a gorgeous place to drink. So here’s to nights we’ll never remember and a city we’ll never forget… Cheers.
