YOUR GUIDE TO COMIC-CON WEEKEND
6 STEPS TO HAVE AN ACTION-PACKED COMIC CON IN SAN DIEGO
For three days this July, San Diego will host the most passionate fans on the planet for the mecca of multi-genre entertainment known as Comic-Con!
Between the cosplay, collectibles and Q&A panels… it’s easy to forget that you’re in one the most beautiful, fun and friendly cities in the world. Whether it’s your first Comic-Con or your tenth, whether you just need a break from the lines and the crowds for a few hours or you’re extending your trip for a few days, here are six ways to add a little action to your Comic-Con adventure:
EAT AN AUTHENTIC SAN DIEGO TACO
Wrestle your hunger at the Lucha Libre Gourmet Taco Shop, an authentic San Diego taco experience that does everything from the classic fish, chicken or steak tacos to mouth-watering Mexican street corn. These fresh ingredients, top quality meats and funky-delicious menu items are cooked and priced just right.
PADDLE THROUGH PARADISE
Take a kayak tour of the famous “7 caves of La Jolla” with Bike & Kayak Tours. Paddle through the beautiful sea cliffs, caves and sandstone formations of the La Jolla Ecological Reserve and glide past sea lions, garibaldi, leopard sharks, shovelnose guitarfish and even the occasional dolphin on this sought-after La Jolla guided kayak tour.
TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
Meet the most exotic animals on the planet at the renowned San Diego Zoo. Over 4,000 animals representing 800 species call this state-of-the-art zoo home, including three giant pandas: Bai Yun, Gao Gao and Xiao Liwu (born at the Zoo in 2012). Tour one of the several special exhibits or see the #1 rated zoo in the world at your own pace.
STROLL THE GASLAMP QUARTER
The historic Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego features 16 square-blocks of Victorian-era buildings and modern skyscrapers standing side by side. 100 of the city's finest restaurants, pubs, rooftop bars, retails shops and galleries call the Gaslamp Quarter home. This is a lively downtown neighborhood that’s perfectly walkable, day or night. Don’t miss the beautiful sunsets!
DISCOVER SEAPORT VILLAGE
Spend an afternoon amongst the coastal breezes and breathtaking views of Downtown's Seaport Village. This fourteen-acre waterfront complex features diverse shops, unique eateries and bayside restaurants. Four miles of meandering cobblestone pathways, ponds, lakes, fountains and a quarter-mile slate boardwalk along the San Diego Bay all work in harmony to recreate the harbor-side setting of a century ago.
