San Diego’s Most Instagrammable Locations

May 30, 2017

I’ve lived in San Diego for 2.5 years, and I wasted no time Instagramming my heart away throughout my time here. As I prepare to leave, I can’t believe how iconic and unique this city really is, and makes me love it all the more.

 

Check out these amazing San Diego finds, and don’t forget to Instagram them. 🙂

 

1. Communal Coffee

Google Maps

 

 

Even if you don’t drink coffee, you won’t regret a visit to Communal Coffee. The giant “coffee + flowers” wall drew me in, but the interior décor is simply drool worthy. @communalcoffee

 

2. Balboa Park Lily Pond

Google Maps

 

 

Balboa Park by itself is stunning to explore, with a plethora of museums, parks, and beautiful architecture, everywhere. But the views of the lily pond and lagoon is extremely popular and worth an Insta snap. @balboapark

 

3. Pigment

Google Maps

 

 

Pigment is a beautiful decorated shop located in San Diego’s trendy North Park neighborhood. Everything in it is instagrammable and also purchasable…good luck getting out without buying something! @shoppigment

 

There are many great photo op spots here, but the California Dreamin’ sign is my fav!

 

 

4. “Greetings from San Diego” Mural

Quickly becoming a San Diego landmark, the Greetings from SD wall mural in North Park just screams Instagram me! #greetingsfromsandiego

 

5. Holy Matcha

Holy Matcha is the stuff Instagram dreams are made of. This ridiculously chic and trendy green tea café is located in North Park. The interior décor is simply gorgeous, complete with tropical pink and green wall paper, pink sofas, and white marble table tops. @holymatchaa

7. Scripps Pier

Taking a photo underneath the Scripps Pier in La Jolla is one of the most popular “postcard perfect” photos from San Diego. It’s best to come at sunset to take a snap of this beauty! #scrippspier

 

8. Better Buzz

Brighten up your day and come take a photo in front of this fun “Favorite Color” wall mural in La Jolla by designer, architect, and furniture maker, Roy McMakin. #favoritecolor

 

10. Hotel Del Coronado

Not only is this stunning and iconic beachfront hotel a beautiful representation of wooden Victorian architecture, it’s a Hollywood favorite as well! Many movies were filmed at the Hotel del Coronado, but my favorite being Some Like It Hot starring the one and only, Marilyn Monroe. @delcoronado

 

11. James Coffee Co.

Located in Downtown’s Little Italy, James Coffee Co. is the brainchild of former guitarist and band member David Kennedy from Angels and Airwaves. @jamescoffeeco

Good luck walking past Baked Bear, located near the Mission Beach boardwalk, without stopping for a treat. This place is where your dessert fantasies can come to life! Create your own cookie or brownie ice cream sandwich and top it off with fun sprinkles, fruity pebbles, or caramel drizzle! @thebakedbear

 

14. Sunset Cliffs

It’s an absolute must that you head over to Sunset Cliffs at sunset. Witness one of the most beautiful sunsets you’ve ever seen as the sun dips below the ocean. Bring a blanket or jacket though, it can get windy and chilly! #sunsetcliff

  • Rise and grind! 🌟
✧⠀
Good morning world. 🌎 Is anyone else feeling that Monday struggle? Here's some thoughts to start you off on the right foot.⠀
✧⠀
Do you believe that God has bigger plans for you than you have for yourself?⠀
✧⠀
"God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we can even ask or imagine."⠀
Ephesians 3:20⠀
✧⠀
This is one of my favorite verses. Why? Because I can imagine quite a bit. And to think, God has even MORE in store for us, then our brains can even comprehend. That is truly unbelievable.⠀
✧⠀
So start dreaming guys. Because whatever you can come up with, rest in knowing that God wants to bless you even more than you can ask of him. 💫
✧⠀
NEW POST today! A few of you have asked about my stay at Tipi Village, so I've put together a post on where it is, what to expect, etc. Check it out, link in bio! 💋 www.lavendervines.com

  • "Keep your eyes on the one who is invisible."⠀
Hebrew 11:27⠀
✧⠀
I read this verse the other day and it stopped me in my tracks. It's not exactly mind-blowing advice, but for some reason, it caught me off guard. It's crazy to me how much of our faith is unseen. ⠀
✧⠀
When we are unsure of the chaos around us. Or when we become discouraged from the struggles in our life. Find strength in knowing that we live by faith, and not by sight. ⠀
✧⠀
Also - I'm excited to share a NEW POST from this gorgeous Navajo-land, The Ultimate Guide to Monument Valley. Love to know what you think! (link in bio!) 💋 www.lavendervines.com⠀
