I haven’t talked much about it on here but a month and a half ago I started a new job! For my second week, the company flew everyone out to San Diego for a packed week of face-to-face time and team building — and it was absolutely incredible.
In a last minute decision Phil decided to buy a plane ticket and come along with me! Although I didn’t get a chance to explore much, he was out and about eating good food and taking in the sights. Here’s a quick recap of what we did!
We stayed at the Intercontinental San Diego which was a beautiful property. There was a large outdoor balcony and bar that overlooks the ocean. A great, central location if you’re visiting San Diego.
Our first night, Phil and I explored Little Italy and grabbed dinner at Farmers Table. Little Italy was filled with cute restaurants and lots of people. A spot we’d definitely visit again and a spot we’d recommend visiting while you’re in San Diego!
On the second day my coworkers and I did some team building and ventured down to Belmont Park which feels like a carnival on the beach. There’s restaurants and bars sitting alongside rollercoasters, rides and bright games. It was crowded and buzzing with energy.
During one of my breaks Phil and I took a quick drive over to Coronado beach so I could see the Pacific Ocean!
While I was with my team Phil visited Balboa Park, Torrey Pines Golf Course, La Jolla, In-N-Out and Petco Park for a MLB game. He recommends The Taco Stand for the best tacos in the city! He cautions that “protein style” doesn’t mean you’re getting more meat like he thought — it means it’s coming in a lettuce wrap. While In-N-Out continues to be a California staple, he didn’t think it lived up to the hype. Seeing the seals sunning themselves in La Jolla was a highlight for him and he notes it as a must-do while you’re in town.
And then on our final day before our flight Phil took me to his favorite lunch spot he had found, Beach Hut Deli, which has delicious sandwiches and acai bowls.
