San Diego Places to Go Map
by: GCS Research • 7
The “San Diego Places to Go Map” App was developed by GCS Research, an award winning geospatial technology company.
The Esri User Conference 2012: Esri, who makes the ArcGIS mapping system, holds its annual user conference in San Diego every year in the San Diego Convention Center downtown. From Rupert Essinger, Esri: “I work for Esri and if you are attending the user conference, I hope this map helps you make the most of your spare time in San Diego, and perhaps gives you some ideas of maps and presentations you can make with ArcGIS!!”. The “San Diego Places To Go” map was created by Rupert Essigner, Esri, and is hosted on ArcGIS Online.
Visit GCS Research in booth D125 at the Esri International User Conference July 23-26, 2012.
Quick San Diego tips
•The Gaslamp Quarter is the famous partying hub of San Diego, centered along Fifth Avenue between Harbor Drive to the south and C Street to the north. Historic Victorian buildings with many clubs, restaurants, bars, and shops. Very lively, fun and busy.
•Little Italy in downtown San Diego is a quieter alternative to the Gaslamp for a place to go. More relaxed and less hectic. India Street between Ash to the south and Hawthorn to the north. You can walk there from the Convention Center or take a rickshaw, and it also has its own trolley station. Some great modern architecture and many restaurants and cafes reflecting the area's Italian heritage. Caffe Italia is the unofficial community center. On Saturday mornings (9am - 1.30pm) there is a great open air street market, the Little Italy Mercato. It's a great way to spend the morning in San Diego. Just head to the intersection of Date and India. There are plenty of food vendors at the market so you can get brunch as you browse.
•La Jolla has the most beautiful coastline in San Diego and is your best bet for an afternoon or day at the beach or exploring the coast. La Jolla Shores beach is all-round the nicest beach in the area with excellent swimming, changing rooms, easy parking, harmless leopard sharks, kayak and surf/SUP board rental shops one block away, etc. You can explore the rocky La Jolla Cove with its coastal trail and sea caves, and see baby seals at Children's Pool. You can also browse the shops, galleries and restaurants in trendy upscale La Jolla Village, or visit the excellent Birch Aquarium which is part of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
•Mission Beach is the epicenter of beach culture in San Diego. It's a peninsula with the ocean and a lively boardwalk on one side, and peaceful Mission Bay Park on the other. Charming alleyways with tiny beach houses criss-cross the peninsula. Mission Bay Park has a great bike/jogging path around the lovely Sail Bay in its northwest corner. Just to the north is the busy Pacific Beach commercial area and Crystal Pier, and just north of there is the quieter Pacific Beach, with its mellow surfing scene. This area is not as swimming friendly as La Jolla Shores because of the heavy shore break. You can rent sailboats, kayaks, and SUP boards, for use on Mission Bay. SeaWorld is on the south edge of Mission Bay.
