Taste Your Way Through Rancho Bernardo and San Diego

Trip Time: 1-2 days

Though more resort town than urban neighborhood, Rancho Bernardo is officially part of San Diego. Base yourself here, then hit spots popular with local cyclists.

Treat yourself to a stay at the Rancho Bernardo Inn . Warm up over breakfast beneath the morning sun on the (what else?) veranda, at its aptly named restaurant, Veranda.
