Take in the sights and attractions

At the Kimpton Alma, inspiration is everywhere. From our spacious suites to the city just beyond our doors. Our skilled team of local experts is here to help create the perfect outing or itinerary for you. In the meantime, here are a few things to do in San Diego to get you started:

  • Walk through Balboa Park, stopping to admire the various museums, gardens and galleries hidden throughout its spacious grounds
  • Hike the steep trails to the top of Cabrillo National Monument or Cowles Mountain for 360-degree views of the city and the ocean.
  • Eat your way through lively Little Italy, home to Italian restaurants, brewpubs, delis and gelato shops galore. Our favorites include False Idol, an uber-trendy tiki bar with cocktail concoctions that pack a punch and Juniper & Ivy, a refurbished warehouse helmed by a James Beard nominated chef
  • Soak up the sun at any number of world-class beaches from Mission to Ocean to Pacific.
