Top 5 Free Things to Do in San Diego

Sometimes it seems as if vacations are all about spending money and going into debt.

Since “making it rain” isn’t exactly practical, we have some ideas for activities that will save you money while allowing you to have an amazing time. Actually, all of the activities listed below won’t cost you a cent! Save your pennies for the fun stuff and fill in some of your vacation hours with these things to do in San Diego for free!

Go to the Beach

It doesn’t cost a thing to pack a cooler and some supplies and head to the beach for a day of relaxation and recreation. Read your favorite book, practice your boogie boarding skills (many of our 710 Beach Rentals provide beach toys for your use), or simply take a nap. The most difficult thing about spending your day at the beach is choosing WHICH beach to visit, but with over 30 beaches in the area, we’re sure you will find one that suits you!

Get a Culture Lesson

Graffiti isn’t always a bad thing. It can be an expression of one’s culture, and the Chicano Park Murals, located underneath the San Diego-Coronado Bridge, are a colorful display of history, culture, and talent. This unique park was established in 1970 and is totally free.

Take a Living History Tour at Old Town State Historic Park

This park is considered the birthplace of California, and all 12 acres are jam-packed with history and culture. The living history tours of the park are held at 11:00 and 2:00 every day, and quite frequently, there will be live music, seasonal festivals, and other events guaranteed to make you smile without costing a cent!
