Sometimes the most difficult part of a vacation is determining how you are going to get around while you are there. Should you walk or take a cab? Should you utilize the transit system or rent a car?

Rent a Car
As in most major cities, renting a car may be your best means of transportation in San Diego. This is a large city, and although many of our vacation rentals will be located near many of San Diego’s most exciting tourist attractions, there will still be plenty of places you want to visit best reached by car. Car rental companies will often provide GPS systems for an extra charge to help direct you to where you want to go, but its also likely that you have the same service on your phone for free.
Travel by Trolley
The Old Town Trolley is a fun and informative way to travel some areas of San Diego. Offering tours that take you to our most popular tourist sites, the trolley guides are fountains of information, allowing you to decide which spots are worth stopping at and which ones you want to pass right by!
Ride the Coaster
The North County Transit’s Coaster train offers a scenic way to tour downtown San Diego, Old Town, and many of the charming coastal communities that can be found throughout the county. In the summer, the “Summer Night Train” stays open later, allowing visitors to enjoy the San Diego nightlife without having to worry about finding an open cab on a busy Saturday night.
The light rail has become the West’s most favored mode of transport, and San Diego is no exception. The Sprinter is a 22-mile long system that has 15 stations and runs every 30 minutes. Connecting into smaller towns like Escondido, Oceanside, and San Marcos, this is an inexpensive and fast way of getting around San Diego.
