Our Fearless Leader

Meet Todd Sarouhan, our fearless leader here at GoVisitSanDiego.com! When he's not reigning supreme over his website domain, Todd is a master of the waves at Pacific Beach or the chill guru at Seascape Beach in Solana Beach. In Todd's world, life's a beach first, and everything else comes after a good surf.

But don't be fooled, Todd's not just about surfboards and sandy toes. He's also a culture connoisseur, often seen leading his family on expeditions through Balboa Park. Here, they dive into the depths of museums, explore the jungles of theaters, and brave the wilds of the San Diego Zoo. It's not just a family outing; it's the Sarouhan family's urban safari!

In the rare moments when he's not basking in the sun or being a cultural pioneer, Todd transforms into the mysterious figure in the corner of his favorite coffee shop.

Amidst the clatter of cups and the buzz of conversation, he's likely penning his next ode to San Diego or strategizing his website's global takeover, fueled by a steady stream of espresso. "Exploring San Diego is like reading a good book; each neighborhood has its own story, and I'm just here trying not to spoil the ending."

The founder and CEO of GoVisitSanDiego.com is also the ultimate cheerleader at Mission Bay, where he roots for his son's sailing prowess with unmatched enthusiasm. And let's not forget the local theaters, where he watches his daughter's ballet performances (with a blend of awe and feigned understanding), especially at prestigious venues like the California Center for the Arts, Escondido, and the Spreckels Theater.

Todd Sarouhan: part beach bum, part culture aficionado, and a full-time San Diego enthusiast. He's the man with a plan, a surfboard, and a knack for storytelling. With Todd, every day in San Diego is an adventure waiting to be told, or at least a good story to be shared over a cup of coffee!

Follow Todd for a unique, and always entertaining tour of San Diego's best and most intriguing spots.
