  • Tractor Room with an award winning collection of mixed drinks! AND, if you get hungry….you must try the Mac n Cheese and Cornbread.

  • You need to try Tipsy Crow. It’s a great bar with three floors, each with a separate vibe.

  • Wavehouse, San Diego, is the largest man-made wave in North America. A true taste of the surf lifestyle.

  • Golf at Torrey Pines. There may not be a more scenic course. Don’t go left on The North Course #7, unless you bring your surfboard.
