The Silvercar San Diego location is off-site from San Diego International Airport. On the Pacific Coast, San Diego is the southernmost city in California. Temperatures usually stay well above freezing without getting too hot or humid. This warm climate makes the beaches and parks a year-round destination. You can have your toes in the sand in just a few minutes because Silvercar’s easy reservation process means no lines and no paperwork when you pick up your Audi rental car.
The city’s flagship Balboa Park is home to the renowned San Diego Zoo as well as art galleries, museums, and gardens. The zoo is one of only four in the US where you can see giant pandas, and the hilly terrain means the enclosures for different animals are able to mimic natural habitats. Travelers with young kids should check out The New Children’s Museum as well as the Fleet Science Center. Remember to reserve one of the free Peg Perego car seats when you make your Silvercar reservation. San Diego is also convenient to Legoland California, in nearby Carlsbad.
The deep harbor is home to a large U.S. Navy fleet as well as the USS Midway, a decommissioned aircraft carrier that is now a museum open to the public. Across San Diego Bay, Hotel Del Coronado and beaches are popular destinations.
If you’re planning a picnic, or staying in an Airbnb residence, you might need some groceries to make a meal. Use the free GPS to find your way to one of the weekly farmers’ markets in Encinitas, Hillcrest, La Jolla, Liberty Station, Little Italy, Ocean Beach, or Pacific Beach, among other areas. California growers supply food across the country, and the markets give you the best picks of seasonal food. The drive along the Pacific Coast Highway will take you through charming beach communities and offer stunning views of the ocean and sunset.
If a restaurant is more your speed, check out one of the waterfront restaurants throughout metro San Diego. Or stop at one of the many stands for the freshest fish tacos around.
