City breaks to San Diego
One of the United State’s southernmost cities, San Diego lies on the United States/Mexican border in California. It has a strong Mexican influence due to the city’s conversion from a Mexican city to an American one in the mid 19th century. Some famous Mexican-American sites include the Old Town San Diego Historic Park and the Mission San Diego de Alcala. In addition to historic sites, if you are interested in turning your city break into an exploration of this hybrid culture, you will have to find a good Mexican restaurant that serves tamales and enchiladas. San Diego is known in the United States for its Mexican food. The city is surrounded by mesas and canyons full of San Diego’s most famous tree, the Torrey Pine. Of course city breaks to San Diego would not be complete without a visit to Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo. No matter what you choose to do on your city break to San Diego, you are bound to find something amazing there.
Where to stay
While hotels and hostels can boast that they have a reliable and simple process for staying with them, they only let you see the city as a tourist. With a city break, you may decide that you would rather experience it as a local and a tourist, especially if you are making several journeys to the city. For a more personal feel consider looking at Wimdu and finding a place to stay with a local in San Diego. You can schedule your city break on our page, after having scoped out our listings.

Best of all, the prices and reliability of staying with a local are competitive with hotels and hostels. So why not?
