Lake Hodges

One of the only actual lakes in San Diego, Lake Hodges is a gorgeous spot in San Diego, and a rather un-touristy one too. The drive to the lake is breathtaking, as Del Dios Hwy gives some of the best views of the lake that I’ve ever seen. The drive somewhat reminds me of Big … More Lake Hodges

Swami’s Beach

Not gonna lie, this is one of my favorite places in the world. And yet, it’s not the most beautiful, spectacular, or different. But man, it sure is special. I’ve been coming to Swami’s ever since the 8th grade. My friends and I used to walk from Leucadia to here every day, always armed with … More Swami’s Beach

Anyways, this place is absolutely breathtaking. A gorgeous little nature escape in the hills of Rancho Santa Fe/Olivenhain, the creek actually runs through a serene little park, which … More Escondido Creek

Box Canyon

Home. Box Canyon was my backyard. I would make a trip here at least once a month, as all it required to get there was a stroll down a trail behind my house. The perfect place to escape the craziness of home life and relax, swim, and truly connect with nature. Box Canyon is one … More Box Canyon

Adobe Falls

Hidden in the suburbs surrounding San Diego State University is a truly amazing find: a waterfall haven that has become a canvas for local street artists, otherwise known as Adobe Falls. A mix of nature and urbanization, Adobe Falls is one of the most unique spots in San Diego that I’ve been to. The place consists … More Adobe Falls
