UNPLUGGED EXPERIENCES

Unfortunately, Covid has really made it challenging to get out and about and away from our tech devices.  Check out the activities below to see if any peak your interest and still allow for social distancing.   

Explore new areas - You can follow along with a group like Hidden San Diego for some off the beaten path areas to explore.  You can also check out the many Little Free Libraries around town (there are over 270  in San Diego alone!).  The one pictured above is in Claremont. Check out the map to find ones near you.  We had several scavenger hunts for National Day of Unplugging, and may have more in months to come, so check back!

Start a Wishing Tree 

Wishing Trees can be set up anywhere at anytime and can serve as a time of support and comfort in trying times. Learn more about the one pictured we set up in my neighborhood for a woman battling cancer, the La Mesa Wishing Tree located at La Mesa Floral Shoppe and the stands placed in the La Mesa Village so passersby can leave a card for a business to show their support in these trying times.

Go on a Gnome Hunt - The Ramona and Escondido wineries are open again!  Wherever you spot a gnome...that is a great place to unplug, relax and re-connect.  There are over 39 wineries in the area and most have outdoor dining areas and let you bring your own picnic along.  Some offer hands on socially distant activities from jewelry making to crafting or painting.

 

In May, Clues will be placed at each of the participating wineries. Try to solve them all and get a chance to win prizes. 

 

Go HERE to sign up for this free event and get your first clue and more details!

 WHEN WE GET BACK TO NORMAL (Post Pandemic) - Hit a comedy night, work your way out of an escape room, charge up your brain at trivia night or refocus your energy doing beachfront yoga.  Here are just a few experiences to explore!
