But the warm-weather locale's expansive landscape means you're going to want a reliable car to get around. Choose from one of Dollar Rent A Car's luxurious and economical San Diego rental cars, and be sure to take advantage of budget-friendly San Diego discounts. After you pick up your vehicle, pack up the kids and head out to these free SoCal attractions:
You won't need your San Diego car rental once you reach the historic neighborhood of Old Town. Walk the streets to explore the interesting past of the area - it was inhabited by the Kumeyaay people more than 9,000 years ago, though many withdrew to the surrounding hills when the Spanish settled here in the late 18th century. Along with chic cafes and galleries, you can expect to see a blacksmith shop and the city's oldest schoolhouse as well as homes and churches that date back to the 1700s.
Mission Trails Regional Park
When you step out of your San Diego car rental and enter the Mission Trails Regional Park, you'll be greeted by an expansive landscape of lush nature coupled with historic and cultural features. Spanning nearly 6,000 acres, this park is among the biggest in the U.S. Start your excursion at the visitors center, where you can watch education videos about the park and tag along with a guided tour of the area. If you're looking to take the family on a camping trip, this is the perfect spot in San Diego - it's home to the popular Kumeyaay Lake Campground. At Mission Trails, you will also find the Equestrian Staging Area, which is the entry point to the park's East Fortuna region as well as the complex system of trails that can be traversed by foot, bike or horseback.
