The app includes the latest info on the region’s major attractions – Sea World, Balboa Park and its Museums, Legoland, the Zoo and Safari Park – plus loads of other fun things to see and do, from whale-watching and paragliding to bar-hopping. Discover what locals enjoy most about this vibrant, diverse city – favorite beaches, hikes, neighborhoods, special-occasion restaurants and hole-in-the-wall gems.
More than 3,300 photos show you what to expect at everything from secret underground speakeasies to 99-cent fish taco trucks. Each entry has a description, map, directions, hours and prices. Many have links to Twitter and Facebook pages.
The app is easy to use. There’s an alphabetical listing of the 265 entries – so if you know what you’re looking for, just scroll the main list. You can also sort by neighborhood, cost and category. Looking for kid-friendly locales? Reliable eats? Nightlife? Freebies? The app points you in the right direction. Our maps show you where the action is around your present location – or around the places you’ll visit later in the day.
There's even a companion Website to keep users in the know between updates.
