10 Frugal Ways to Have Fun in San Diego


The vibrant waterfront city of San Diego is located mere miles from the US border with Mexico. Being a technology powerhouse, San Diego is the fifth richest city in the US. While you might at first think that a city this wealthy wouldn’t possibly have anything for those without a bundle to spend, San Diego certainly comes through with great style in this area. Here are several ideas to get you started.

1. Visit the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

The half-million acre park offers a stark desert landscape that you are likely to have ever seen if you don’t live in the Southwest.

It’s a fascinating place to enjoy solitude and get closer to nature without spending a dime.
