To really convince you of San Diego’s charms, we’ve turned to two experts: Archana Ram and Erin Jackson.
Archana is a senior editor at San Diego Magazine and has more than a decade of experience covering travel, food and style for outlets including Travel + Leisure, AFAR, Sunset and Vogue. She also contributed to the 2017 edition of the Fodor’s San Diego guidebook.
Erin Jackson is a food writer and photographer who has been on a mission to discover the best chefs and restaurants in San Diego since 2010. She is also the founder of Friendly Feast, a nonprofit organization that produces food and drink events to benefit the local community.
We asked both for a local-eyed view of the city, and they were kind enough to share their secrets.
