Introducing our New Travel Show - This Is Our Town!

If you've ever been on one of our tours, then you know we're all about the unique places. You know, areas that are off-the-beaten path? Living in San Diego is a perfect destination for our adventurous spirit because there's so many interesting places to check out.  From hidden walking paths to beautiful roof top lounges and fun historical landmarks, San Diego has a lot to offer. So when we were asked to create a fun Travel show focusing on hidden gems, how could we refuse? It's right up our alley!

"This is our Town" showcases secret San Diego spots and has the same fun, laid back feel as our walking, biking and custom Rent-a-Local tours. We've been creating these personalized tours since 2003 and we absolutely love taking people to these hidden areas. And let's face it. With everything that's happening in today's world, we all need a little escapism!

Our first episode focuses on one of our favorite neighborhoods - Mission Hills! We felt this was a perfect way to kick off our new series as this community is so special - and truly reflects the uniqueness of San Diego.

We want to give a Shout Out to our Publishing Partner, Seacoast Media Labs, for making this happen! Seacoast produces The Poway Eagle, Scripps Ranch News and the new Digital Magazine, Words & Pictures.  In addition to their online platforms, "This is our Town" will also be available on this blog, as well as our Facebook & Instagram pages, and YouTube Channel.

Let's head to Mission Hills!

Happy Travels!

Stay at Home Super Challenge

With most people working remotely, there's all sorts of interesting dynamics are happening.  Not to mention, schools aren't open so the kids are home and suddenly, parents are faced with being the breadwinner, Mom & Dad plus school teacher.

Given everything the world is experiencing, we started thinking about our role - and what we could do, to help. We came up with lots of ideas but one thing that stood out for us was giving the gift of "fun." So, we decided to create the Great STAY AT HOME SUPER CHALLENGE!

Since we're known for creating cool Scavenger Hunts, we felt this was the perfect answer. It is FREE, family friendly and anyone can play it, regardless of where you live.  And thanks to some very generous partners, the winning team will walk away with a fabulous San Diego Staycation prize!

The First Place team will win:

*One Night stay at Andaz San Diego + Valet Parking
*2 Jet Ski Rentals courtesy of San Diego Bay Adventures
*Movie Tickets for 2
*Urban Challenge Scavenger Hunt for up to 12 people

Entries must be received by April 22, 2020 so don't delay!
