Spotlight on San Diego



At Costco Travel, we’re dreaming right along with you about future getaways, graduation celebrations, you name it! We thought it might be fun to explore San Diego from the comfort of your home – who knows, maybe even a jumping-off point for a real-life adventure down the road! Here’s to keeping those dreams alive!



San Diego is renowned for its laid-back beach culture, Cali-Baja cuisine, wines, craft beers, golf, spas and of course the San Diego Zoo. Skateboard legend Tony Hawk, Olympic medalist Shaun White and surfers Rob Machado and Jen Smith call it home. Musician Jason Mraz even has a coffee plantation here! But San Diego’s glorious beaches are usually first to come to mind.

So, let’s start by getting into the San Diego spirit. Download a San Diego background. Maybe use it for a Zoom or Microsoft Teams meeting. Now that you can visualize San Diego, consider surrounding yourself with the sounds of San Diego. Spotify offers a San Diego Symphony - Opens a dialog channel or listen to a San Diego podcast. Here are few to consider: Masterpiece Minute (art), Voice of San Diego (culture, politics) or San Diego Magazine's Happy Half-Hour (food news, restaurant reviews).
