I was lucky enough to grow up in Encinitas – one of the most laid-back beach communities in North County San Diego. From sun up ‘til sun down the Enc. beach bums and I would lay out, wander around Highway 101 and hunt for the best Mexican food in town. Ask any local, there really is something magical about growing up in a city like San Diego. Yet I had no idea how fortunate I was until the day I left for college at UC Davis. Oh Sacramento, how I don’t miss you at all. Fast forward to three years later when I did everything in my power to graduate early and run back down south. In fall of 2006 a few crazy La Jolla boys launched a new website called DiscoverSD.com, and I happened to be at the right place at the right time, and more inspired than ever. For four and a half years now I’ve done my best to make this website into a fun lifestyle guide fit for savvy locals and curious visitors who want to live like locals. From spas to clubs and restaurants, I guide you to the best of San Diego based on the lifestyle I lead and believe in. I'm addicted to spa days. I thrive on our evolving nightlife scene. Play me hip-hop or house music. When I'm not obsessing over new restaurants and boutiques, you can find me strolling around the San Diego Harbor or hosting lifestyle event video for NBC San Diego. Feel free to e-mail me directly with ideas, feedback and invitations for reviews. Get real-time lifestyle news at twitter.com/michellescene!
