Nothing lets you experience the SoCal lifestyle quite like staying by the beach.  You can surf with seals in La Jolla. You can drink in sunsets on Coronado Island. You might even enjoy the old-fashioned boardwalk at Mission Beach. Sure, San Diego ensures a great time regardless of where you slumber. But, choosing a beach-front home is the best way to maximize your stay here. These homes are some of the best for visitors hoping to explore San Diego’s charming Little Italy (while catching a few waves):
