Living The Location: San Diego Style

Living The Location San Diego | Dine X Design

There’s something about San Diego that makes you want to turn off your cell phone, throw on a pair of sandals and take off on a beach cruiser with no set plans for the day. It’s carefree, the weather is always nearly perfect, and there is never a shortage of tacos….or beer, for that matter.

Sometimes getting a bad rap, San Diego is actually on the move. The design and food scene is blossoming lately with neighborhoods turning over and exciting things coming to life (you can check out a full city guide our sister site The Cuisinerd put together for a few more of our favorite spots).
