The Real San Diego Summer Bucket List
Beyond Balboa Park, the Zoo, and the beach...
Summer is in full force in San Diego, and if you’re looking for things to do other than the traditional local attractions, we have the MUST DO list that will take your summer to the next level. From the famous warm weather, to endless summer events, and everything else under the sun, San Diego proves time and time again that the city is best enjoyed with tan lines.
Stay and play at the Lafayette Summer Pool Party Series.
Sunshine, tan lines and cool refreshments! You can literally dive right in to our Weissmuller pool the moment you walk out of your poolside room. We’ve partnered with local artists and breweries to bring you fun and relaxation as you lay out poolside during our Summer Pool Party Series. Each themed event transforms the poolside experience making each event a must attend.
