While there are many places to visit in San Diego, CA including the Comic-Con, museums, San Diego Zoo, and lots of other fun places, there are even a lot more fun things to do. If you want to get into the action, here are a few fun things to do in San Diego, alone or with friends. 

Axe throwing

This is without any doubt one of the most memorable activities you will ever get to do. It is more like playing a game of darts only with more thrill. You can walk into an axe-throwing bar, receive expert coaching from the staff, and enjoy axe throwing for as long as you would like. If you are competitive, you’ll enjoy the tournament-style walk-ins. Whether you like playing in a league or by yourself there is something for you in an axe-throwing bar.


This is yet another exhilarating activity you can get in while in San Diego. The county has more than 70 miles of open ocean coastline. This means there is a surf spot near where you plan on staying. Some great places to catch a wave are Oceanside, Del Mar, and Black’s Beach. The best thing is there are so many shops to rent surfing gear from. 

Whale watching

If you happen to be in San Diego between December and April, you should not miss the amazing sight of California Gray Whale as they migrate to Baja California from Northern Alaska. Embarcadero has the best whale watching cruises. There will be a naturalist on board to give amazing insights about the whales. If you are lucky, you will get to see dolphins too.
