Hello. My Name is Local Wally.
How do you find the BEST of San Diego? You ask a local....but not just any local. You ask Local Wally, the local guy who's been giving straight insider's advice to San Diego tourists and locals alike since 1996. I'm not a big corporation, I'm just a local guy who loves San Diego and wants to make sure you have a great time in my hometown. From finding the best hotel in San Diego to the best restaurants to avoiding the tourist traps, that's that Local Wally is all about.
Whether you're a local looking for things to do or a tourist planning a trip, it's all here - including the things that everyone from Fodors to The Travel Channel misses, and trust me, they miss a lot. But how could they know? They're not locals!
Do you know what parts of town to stay in, and what parts to avoid? Or what Summer month is famous for vacation ruining overcast skies? Where do locals eat and what tourist traps are actually worth visiting? You don't know? Well Local Wally does!
Stick with me and I'll guide you to the best restaurants, the best attractions, the best sunsets, the best places to stay, everything that makes San Diego the perfect spot for vacations and fun. There's no sales pitch, no hidden agenda, just good stuff about San Diego from me to you. If it's good, it's here. If it's not, it's not.
