Tijuana Mexico Map

David asks…

fun things that are free to do during the summer in san diego?

I live in SanDiego, and I don’t have much planned.
I want to go to a lot of places or atleast not be at home.

Is there any cool events happening or free concerts? Something like that

Tijuana answers:

1. Head to San Diego’s many beaches, all free to the public, to swim, body surf or hang-ten. Play in the sand, collect seashells or just bask in the sun.

2. Visit La Jolla Cove and see the magnificent sunset on the ocean. La Jolla Cove is one of the most spectacular natural settings in the world.

3. Visit downtown San Diego’s Seaport Village for hours of free entertainment, leisurely strolling and window-shopping. Enjoy a laid-back day of hanging out in the grass and watching the many passing yachts and ships on picturesque San Diego Bay, or take in the sights from one of the many bay-view eateries.

4. Stroll through the 16½-block historic Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego and view the renovated turn-of-the-century Victorian architecture, home to boutiques, art galleries, specialty shops and more.

5. Fly a kite along the grassy field in the Tecolote Shores of Mission Bay Park, a 4,600-acre aquatic park. Here, away from trees and overhead wires, friends and family gather to launch colorful kites into the bay breezes.

6. Enjoy free organ concerts at 2 p.m. On Sundays at the Spreckels Organ Pavillion in Balboa Park. The Organ Pavillion features one of world’s largest outdoor pipe organs, a San Diego landmark since 1914, where organists play traditional favorites, waltzes and show tunes on enormous 32-foot pipes.

7. Visit Old Town and witness the living legacy of San Diego history. Guests are also invited to wander free through Old Town’s historic buildings, including the blacksmith shop, Seeley Stables, Stewart House, Estudillo House and the oldest schoolhouse in San Diego.

8. Bike or jog along Mission Bay Park’s many trails. Joggers and walkers share more than 20 miles of scenic running paths that wind through sunlight and shade near the shoreline and feature workout courses at planned stations along the route.

9. Visit the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista for a free tour of the 150-acre facility, including training fields and tracks, athlete dorms and the Otay Lake Reservoir. Tours are offered daily from the Copley Visitor Center between 10 a.m.-3 p.m. On Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m-3 p.m. On Sunday.

10. Stargaze outside the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park on the first Wednesday of every month. The San Diego Astronomy Association sets up huge telescopes to offer guests a great view of all the stars in the night sky.

11. Take a scenic, one-hour drive to Mt. Laguna. Once there, hop out for an invigorating hike and enjoy the fresh mountain air whispering through the pines.

12. Step back in time with a stop in Julian, a century-old gold mining town in the Cuyamaca Mountains. Pick up a free map at the Chamber of Commerce for a self-guided walking tour of the area’s historic sites and later enjoy a slice of homemade apple pie – a Julian specialty!

13. Grab your picnic basket and head to Torrey Pines State Park where you can watch talented and daring hang-gliders do tricks in the strong winds that sweep along the coastline cliffs.

14. Cross the border into colorful and exciting Tijuana, Mexico. Entrance is free, the people are friendly, and the shops offer unique gifts and apparel as well as great window-shopping.

15. Rollerblade, skateboard or bicycle along the Mission Beach Boardwalk, a scenic 3-mile boardwalk along picturesque Mission and Pacific Beaches.

16. Visit Mission Trails Regional Park to explore the cultural, historical and recreational aspects of San Diego. Stop at the Visitor’s Center and learn about the wonders of nature and the people who once lived on the land. Or, roam through the park’s 40 miles of natural and developed hiking and biking trails.

17. Go scuba diving or snorkeling off San Diego’s shores and see spectacular creatures of the sea. La Jolla Cove offers some of the clearest waters on the California coast, as well as miles of protected underwater preserves to explore.

18. Go bird watching at the Torrey Pines State Reserve. Located high above Torrey Pines State Beach, the area is home of the rare and ancient Torrey Pine as well as a beautiful protected habitat for swifts, thrashers, woodpeckers and wrentits.

20. Visit other museums around town that offer similar free days. In its La Jolla facility, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego is free on the third Tuesday of each month; the downtown facility is free daily.

Sandra asks…

How can i get to cancun without flying?

I wana go to cancun for spring break but i dont want to fly..is there a way i can catch a greyhound or some sort of bus there

Tijuana answers:

You did not say where you are from.
For North America, Central America, South America. All these options will not be included in all locations.
Drive.
Take a train.
Take the bus.
Walk.
Take a cruise ship.
From other places, you will be limited to a ship or a ship and the above options.
All you have to do is get to the American, Belize, Guatemala border then you will have buses. Remember you will need a passport and will have to buy your FMM.
If you are coming from North America the bus ride in Mexico is about 2 days and more each way. That is up to 8 days on a bus round trip, just in Mexico alone.

Please pick a “Best Answer”, even if it is not mine.
That way we can tell if we really do help people.

When you enter Mexico from the United States by land it is various distances. Tijuana is just south of San Diego, California. McAllen and Brownsville, Texas are south east of there, and they are on the border with Reynosa and Matamoros. Cancun is directly south of Tallahassee, Florida and is closer to Miami than it is to any of the norther Mexican cities.
It would help if you would look at a map of Mexico.
Sorry, I did not give you an answer that you wanted.

Daniel asks…

What’s the best way to travel to tijuana? Should I rent a car drive to there or should I rent a car t?

Going to Tijuana

Tijuana answers:

I agree with Hearty.

Your U.S. Auto insurance is no good in Mexico so prepare to purchase Mexican auto insurance. The last thing you want to happen is an accident, etc. And not have MX insurance.

Lately there are reports that Tijuana is a less than favourable location to visit, Please Please Please be sure you know where you are headed to and have a decent map.

Better yet like Hearty says, park on the U.S. Side and walk through and yes, be sure you have a valid passport.
