San Diego NSFL/CORE - "HIDDEN GEMS OF SAN DIEGO" (Oct 2021)

It was so great to share these Hidden Gems of San Diego with all who attended the Navy Services FamilyLine/CORE presentation on Thursday October 21, 2021! Below you'll find the slides from my presentation and in a few days I'll come back here to add in links and other information that will be helpful for searching these places and finding out all you need to know to get there.


(Here's the link to my presentation for May 2022)


If you have any questions about these slides, please reach out to me via email (famdiego@yahoo.com), website 'contact me' or send me a DM through my Instagram @famdiego.


I hope you all discovered some new places to go and things to do. And more importantly, I hope you all choose at least one of these special places to take your family and make some new memories together. Enjoy!

Bathrooms, lots of parking, playground, mostly shaded, hiking trail (about 40 minutes long).

Chollas Lake

Easy parking up close, walk onto the docks and see all the ducks, walk around the entire lake (about 30-40 minutes), it's an easy flat wide trail. At the end you'll find a Boy Scout Nature Trail (about 10-15 walk). There's a wooden house play structure and some workout/exercise bars. Bathrooms here too.


Strollers: This is stroller friendly if you have an all-terrain stroller. The upper trail is dirt, but it's compact and wide and flat all around.
