Check out my San Diego road trip pictures in this post. The road trip began at 1 am and we arrived from the Bay Area to San Diego at around 10:40 am. We stopped two times during the trip. I recommend starting a California road trip at midnight because there was little traffic for the most part. However, around 8am-9am the drive got a tad congested around Los Angeles. Granted even between 1 am to 4 am there were a fair amount of cars out but the ride was smooth. Once we got to San Diego, we started the day off with much-needed massages and facials.
We visited Tacos El Gordo. There are two restaurants in the area, we went to the most famous one with a larger parking lot. Address: 556 Broadway, Chula Vista, CA 91910. We ordered several tacos and all were delicious. The corn tortillas are made by hand in-house. I’d recommend trying the pastor tacos.
I highly recommend the Marriott hotel we stayed at during our trip. The building is brand new and beautiful. The room was exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. We luckily got a nice corner room with a window outside the front door. Hotel: TownePlace Suites San Diego Central
We went to the Encinitas beach during trip and enjoyed the sunset. See my sunset pictures above.
