#SilverYearGoldenState – La Jolla & All of the Tacos

25 is a weird milestone. I’ve finished all my schooling. I’ve gotten my degree. Hell, I even own a rolodex (which I actually forgot to pack. . .). Anywho, most of my friends and I celebrated in NYC style during my going away party last month, and the whole Vegas thing is very much a 21-year-old milestone. So, my friends and I decided to take a long weekend trip to sunny San Diego!

It was my first trip over there and, per my usual self, I planned each day out to a tee in Google Docs (please tell me I’m not the only one who does this?) We had many, many tacos and lots and lots of In-n-Out

One of my favorite landmarks was La Jolla. We were able to watch the sea lions/seals (forgive the misuse of names throughout this post), play around the rocks for a little bit, and have lunch at the best seat in the house at George’s on the Cove – this wonderful restaurant that overlooks the beach and had some amazing cocktails and food.

Afterwards, my friends and I went a little tourist crazy – we had some acai bowls (I’m biased and think the ones in Hawaii are still a bit better, the acai was too liquidy for my taste), saw the views from Mount Soledad, and hung around Pacific Beach for a bit.

We also celebrated mine and my friend Alyssa’s birthday that evening and had dinner reservations at Cafe Sevilla. Family style paella valenciana + live music is always a recipe for a great dinner. We also got to experience some of the nightlife in the Gaslamp Quarter which was a really fun and exciting area to be in.

Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo are up next!
