If you'd rather sip a craft beer or share a flaming cocktail bowl than dance until 4am, you'll love the laidback nightlife in San Diego. The craft beer mecca of California seemingly sports one brewery for every hundred residents, and its flourishing cocktail scene has hipsters sipping labored concoctions on rootops, in arcades and even in donut shops. Plus, the city’s tropical environs have inspired a reinvigorated tiki scene that’s lured the world’s largest gathering of Mai Tai worshippers, Tiki Oasis. After catching the sunset, stroll San Diego’s varied neighborhoods, and you’ll discover the laid-back beach town keeps humming long after the surfboards have been stowed and the kids have gone to bed.
