Skip the traffic and see San Diego from the sky!
Although San Diego’s traffic isn’t anything like Los Angeles, Houston, or Boston (three that I’m intimately familiar with), it still takes time to get around and see everything. Might I suggest, then, a tour by airplane?
Downtown San Diego:
San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge and downtown San Diego:
Ocean Beach in the foreground and downtown San Diego in the background:
San Diego International Airport and Harbor Island marina:
Shamu Stadium at SeaWorld San Diego. You can see one of the Shamus in the pool at center left:
Old Point Loma Lighthouse. First lighted on November 15, 1855, the lens was 462 feet above sea level, making it visible for 28 miles. Unfortunately, when the marine layer rolled in each evening, the light could not be seen, making it visible for 0 miles when it was most needed.
New Point Loma Lighthouse, built in 1891 at about 20 feet above sea level. Although you can visit the Old Point Loma Lighthouse at Cabrillo National Monument, the new lighthouse is not accessible to the public.
The end of the Ocean Beach Pier, the longest pier on the West Coast at 1,971 feet.
And a 29-second video coming in for a landing at Montgomery Field after a San Diego Sky Tour:
