A local’s rainy day guide to getting the most out of San Diego!

Howdy, fellow adventurers! Are you visiting San Diego on a rainy day? Don’t worry, there are plenty of exciting things to do! Put on your raincoat and let’s explore the best indoor activities in Little Italy, Mission Beach, and Pacific Beach.

Museums to see in Little Italy

A good place to start is Little Italy. This charming and trendy neighborhood is known for its authentic Italian cuisine and vibrant art scene. When it’s raining outside, why not spend some time exploring the unique boutiques and shops that line the streets? From vintage clothing to artisanal pottery, there’s something for everyone. And when you need a break from shopping, head to one of Little Italy’s many museums, like the Museum of Contemporary Art or the Maritime Museum of San Diego.

Fun indoor things to do in Mission Beach

Next up, Mission Beach. This lively neighborhood is home to the iconic Belmont Park, which features a variety of indoor attractions, including an arcade, laser tag, and even a classic carousel. But if you’re looking for something a bit more low-key, why not check out one of the many local breweries in the area? With a pint of your favorite craft beer in hand, you can enjoy the rainy day atmosphere from the comfort of a cozy taproom. We recommend Draft, at Belmont Park!

Rainy day activities in Pacific Beach

Finally, we have Pacific Beach, a vibrant coastal community that’s always buzzing with activity. And just because it’s raining doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! Why not head to one of the area’s many bowling alleys for a friendly game with friends? Or, for a more cultural experience, check out the La Jolla Playhouse, which features a variety of theatrical productions throughout the year.
