Groceries
Just a head's up! California does not allow grocery stores to provide free plastic bags when you buy groceries. Grocery stores provide thicker re-usable bags for $0.10 each. However, previous guests often leave the reusable bags in kitchen cabinets or drawers, and I try to keep some on hand in the unit for your use! Please feel free to leave some for the next person if you happen to find yourself buying some :)
Upon check-in, you just may need a late night trip to the store! This one is open 24 hours. Also during the day you might look nearby for Whole Foods, Trader Joes, CVS Pharmacy, Western Union, Fed-Ex and several restaurants including California Pizza Kitchen, Chipotle, BJ's Restaurant and Brewery, Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery, and several other restaurants and retail stores.

Walking/Running/Hiking/Golf
San Diego has consistently wonderful weather and is great for outdoor activities. Here are several I would recommend!
For those who like a good morning walk or run, or just a stroll to get some food, etc., there are lots of beautiful walking trails in this area! This pin is the start of the trail on the map, but you can access by walking through the trails at Nobel park as well. Most of these trails are connected and are excellent for just exploring as you go!
