I’ve seen them since I was a kid, those swell seagull-themed Scenic Drive signs around San Diego. I even have an old one, purchased legitimately from the City of San Diego. It’s the basic San Diego road trip. Get out and take this one if you haven’t… the San Diego Tourism Authority has the description and Google Maps has the route.
After you’re done with the Scenic Drive, there are more great places to drive in San Diego county. Pick up a copy of my best-selling driving-tour book, Joyrides Around San Diego on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble (online and in-store, check the website), or download right now from Amazon Kindle. I give you 10 drives around the county… mountains, desert and beaches. Discover San Diego county like a native.
