We will pick you and your group up at your San Diego hotel and then we’re off to San Diego’s own island paradise: Shelter Island. Along the drive, learn about the early days of the city, the Big Bay, and fishing and Navy industries. Visit several Tiki-inspired buildings such at Trader Mort’s Liquor – where Bosko carvings thrive, Bali Hai Restaurant, and Humphrey’s Half Moon Bay Resort where you will be greeted with a taste of a specialty refreshment and a personalized tour of the complex. In addition to the tiki fun, we will tour the mid-century modern architecture of The Pearl Hotel. Lemonade and water will be provided on the bus.
