The Lodge at Torrey Pines
Kilt-clad doormen greet you and open the doors to a Craftsman-style lobby that features original art, furniture, and wood paneling. Even if you’re not staying there, it’s worth stopping by to soak in the atmosphere. And since it’s San Diego, the weather’s probably beautiful.
Torrey Pines Gliderport
Watch colorful gliders fill the air like a flock of soaring birds, going where the wind takes them.
Newport Avenue, Ocean Beach
Right where the road ends and the beach begins, enjoy browsing numerous antique stores. It’s an eclectic scene and, whether you’re a surfer or a shopper, there’s plenty to do and see.
Housed in part of an old trolley station (you can see the tracks), this is a South Park gem. Everything in Progress is thoughtfully chosen, regardless of size or price. So linger on a custom sofa as you thumb through a copy of “The Manly Art of Knitting”.
