San Diego is a city close to my heart, with a handful of sandy beaches, myriad historic quarters, and the endless Balboa Park. Most importantly though, the weather stays beautiful year-round, meaning you can take a trip to this sunny city any time. With frequent deals on San Diego hotels and Airbnbs outside of high season, you won’t break the bank with these downtown accommodations.
Anaheim is most well-known for beloved Disneyland, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to do beyond the theme park adventures. Sports lovers will enjoy taking in a baseball game down at Angel Stadium or a hockey match across the street at the Honda Center. Those who prefer a more low-key visit will be pleasantly surprised by the downtown Farmer’s Market and Packing District and nearby Anaheim Brewery. For a day enjoying the great outdoors, Yorba Park offers up plenty of space and lush foliage for barbecuing, relaxing, or throwing around a frisbee. So book your downtown Anaheim hotel and check out these unique local attractions.
