San Diego Listed Among Best U.S. Cities To 'Staycation': Report

Three Golden State cities ranked among the best places to "staycation," according to a new list compiled by WalletHub. San Diego snagged no. 9 out of 182 cities across the U.S.

The financial advice website used several metrics to determine how cities ranked, including the number of parks, swimming pools, ice cream shops, museums, coffee shops, beer gardens, zoos, aquariums, tennis courts, public golf courses and spas per capita in each city. It also took into account local restaraunt meal costs and entertainment.

In sunny San Diego, locals have a plethora of sandy beaches with rolling surf right at their fingertips.

Here are just a few suggestions to add to your San Diego staycation bucket list:

Balboa Park

San Diego Zoo

Hotel del Coronado Curio Collection

San Diego Natural History Museum

Maritime Museum of San Diego

La Jolla Shores Park

Windansea Beach

Sunset Cliff's Natural Park

Japanese Friendship Garden

Mingei International

San Elijo State Beach

Annie's Canyon Trail

Other California cities that ranked above no. 20 were San Francisco (no. 3) and Los Angeles (no. 15). Fremont, the Bay Area's fourth-largest city, was listed at the bottom of WalletHub's staycation list, ranking as the worst city for taking a local vacation.
