San Diego, a city where cultures dance together, and do they know how to throw a party, especially when it's for Día de los Muertos! Also known as Day of the Dead, it's that special time when we fondly remember those who've left us.
San Diego's been doing this for years, and each neighborhood has its own way of bringing the day to life. The festivities literally painted in vibrant colors, echoing with stories of yesteryears, and every corner having its own twist to the tale.
Thinking of where to start? The historic vibes of Old Town San Diego are always a hit and my personal favorite!
Imagine walking streets bathed in marigolds, standing in front of beautifully adorned ofrendas, and being a part of tales that echo across time. And then there's the ever-bustling Balboa Park, where The Old Globe offers a one-day immersive experience like no other.
But hey, it's not all about the past! Día de los Muertos is also about celebrating the now. And trust me, San Diego knows how to celebrate - with Aztec dancers moving to a rhythm that speaks to the soul, music that'll make you feel, altars that touch your heart, and food... oh, the food! Every corner of the city promises to tantalize your senses.
Different places, different styles, but one common thread: a whole lotta love, memories, and togetherness.
