A Really Fun Tour to Pair with a Performance

Having something to eat and drink before a performance is a popular activity for sure. I’d like to one up that a bit and suggest a tour that I really love - the Brothels, Bites & Booze Tour in Downtown San Diego.

With the tour, you’ll get food, drinks and scandalous tales.

Additional Nearby Attractions

If you’re coming into Downtown San Diego to the theater for a performance, you may be interested in what other family-friendly attractions are in the area?

I’d start by recommending the many nearby museums with The New Children's Museum in the Gaslamp Quarter being one of my family’s favorites. From there, it has to be the San Diego Zoo and The Fleet Science Center with IMAX both in Balboa Park or the Birch Aquarium at Scripps, a short ride north in La Jolla.

All these attractions can be had a discount with the advanced purchase of a Go City San Diego pass using code GVSD5OFF.
