Picnic at Presidio Park

I recently discovered how amazing Presidio Park is.  After hiking around a hidden hillside trail, I understood why the Spaniards chose this place to be their military fortress. Forget spending two hours at a restaurant in Old Town*. Grab some food to-go and have a picnic at Presidio Park, so you can enjoy the wonderful views, history, and calmness that surround these sacred grounds.

Here are some suggestions on nearby places for yummy grub: El Indio or Lucha Libre for Mexican Food; In-N-Out Burger in Mission Valley (you must stop at an In-N-Out when you’re in CA); Saffron for Thai; Bronx Pizza for NY Style Pizza (for non-New Yorkers).

If you just want to sip on espresso or tea while experiencing Presidio Park, check out Espresso Mio in Mission Hills, Pappalecco or Chocolat in Hillcrest; all three cafes also offer delicious sandwiches and paninis. I also suggest Extraordinary Desserts on 5th Avenue in Hillcrest. Presidio Park is well worth your time if you’re looking for a place that defines a huge part of San Diego history.  Enjoy!

Feel free to contact me if you’d like additional tips.  I’m more than happy to help 🙂

*Old Town is neat. I love the historical houses and haunted houses. I appreciate slice of San Diego History it offers.  It’s just a location that most locals avoid for dining.
