See the city neighborhoods and local sights and establishments

This is a driving tour with six stops. We will drive through some of the local neighborhoods and stop at some iconic eating and drinking places to relax, play games, and savor the scenery. We will also meander some of the downtown and browse the local shops.

This is a good tour to get to know the city a bit if you are thinking of moving here or simply want to see more of the city than the known touristy spots. Feel free to ask about any places you have heard about and would like to see. I am totally flexible in customizing the tour to your desires.


You will be picked up at your hotel in a rented air-conditioned new car or mini van. (If you have your own vehicle see my "Have Your Own Vehicle" City Tour). From there we will drive by the bay beaches and parks and through the neighborhoods nearby to downtown. We will stop at some of the favorite local "hangouts", including an iconic sports bar, a craft beer brewery where you can watch the beer making process and play games, and a neighborhood "comfort food and tearoom" establishment from the 1920s. We will stretch our legs at the local airport to watch the small planes coming in for a landing over the bay, and see the famous Dali Museum. We will start our walk at the SunDial plaza and see where famous chefs cook and stroll through outdoor cafes. The tour will end back at your hotel.
