You can’t remember the last time you took a vacation, and it's definitely not gonna happen anytime soon. But who ever said you have to leave the city when you take time off? Let's reexamine what’s going on in our own backyard. San Diego attracts droves of tourists looking to escape their own personal hells known as "the Midwest" and "the East Coast." Living smack dab in the middle of paradise, it’s easy to take all we have for granted.

Why should tourists get to have all the fun? Treat yo self.
