Food Fights and Freedom in San Diego

There’s a lot more to San Diego than meets the eye, which is good, because it’s very easy to get one of those poked out by flying marshmallows at the city’s annual 4th of July smores fight. Check out our little photo tour for an insider’s view of why this city attracts more than 30 million visitors a year, making it one of the most thriving tourism hubs we’ve hit.

Joe hangs ten at Wave House, Mission Beach’s bar with a man-made wave. Don’t bother zooming in, that’s definitely, 100% Joe.

Just north in Pacific Beach, Joe takes part in the aforementioned marshmallow fight, which commences every year as soon as the last fireworks go off.

This vet is apparently an absolute legend at the beach. His patriotism is matched only by his robot.

Back in the city, these GoCars bill themselves as “the cure for the common tour”. Very fun, and perfect for tourists who think that riding pedicabs isn’t embarrasing enough!

North of the city, Torrey Pines isn’t just for golfing.

And finally: free enterprise in action, San Diego-style.
