Your 72 Hour Guide to a Waterfront Vacation in Downtown San Diego

Pack Your Perfect Trip With Great Food, Sites, Shopping and More

For tourists and first-time visitors, America’s Finest City is known for a lot of things, mainly attractions like Balboa Park, Petco Park and the famous San Diego Zoo. But frequent travelers and locals both know that San Diego is so much more than that—it’s a city booming with delicious food, vibrant nightlife, exciting things to do and plenty of fun to go around. Whether you’re a sun chaser, a foodie, a thrill-seeker or a family looking for a new favorite vacation spot, downtown San Diego is the place to be, particularly if you want to fill your three-day trip with waterfront views and activities. Ready, set, pack! Here’s your complete guide to a waterfront vacation in downtown San Diego.

DAY 1

4 p.m. Check-in at Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina

Start off your three-day downtown San Diego vacation by checking in to the bayfront Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina, where panoramic views just don’t quit. Those seeking some adventure will love taking advantage of the Seaforth Boat Rentals to explore the bay or Wheel Fun bike rentals to tour nearby attractions like Seaport Village and the Gaslamp Quarter. Other fun on-site activities include the Topgolf Swing Suites and the two free-form pools. And those who are really in need of serious TLC will love soaking up some sun on the hotel’s poolside daybeds or treating themselves to a massage at the Hideaway Spa. But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves! After getting settled in your luxurious, recently redesigned room and freshening up or taking a quick dip in the pool, we recommend staying on-site for dinner so you can explore and enjoy everything this stunning waterfront hotel has to offer. You may even catch some live music at Tequila Bar (Friday and Saturday from 3-6 p.m.) or Marina Kitchen (Friday and Saturday from 7-10 p.m.). It’s safe to say this is one of the chicest and happening hotels in downtown San Diego.

Wheel Fun Rentals has 3 locations in downtown San Diego – Marriott Marquis Marina, Manchester Grand Hyatt, and the Wyndham Bayside!
