As a San Diego DMC, we sometimes encounter the “problem” of having too much to offer when it comes to group activity options. Often meeting planners are faced with the issue of trying to maximize the San Diego experience within a minimal time frame. That’s why we like to offer hybrid tours that provide the best of both worlds. Want to burn calories and consume them? We’ve got you. Want to see the popular tourist sites and get a feel for the local neighborhood flavor? TET to the rescue!
Last month, we had the pleasure of providing several fun hybrid activities for San Diego groups who tasted their way through town. Each tour provided a unique twist, such as exercise, specialty transportation and educational elements. Check it out!
Beer-cycling through PB:
This clever activity allows guests to chat it up, enjoy the scenery, and squeeze in some exercise between brewery visits. We can’t think of anything more San Diego. Our recent clients out of the Catamaran Resort pedaled their way to two nearby craft beer locales: PB Alehouse and Barrel Republic.
Trolley and Taps:
This group tour was developed exclusively by The Event Team! It also blends the trending craft brewery scene with more traditional San Diego sightseeing (only there’s no physical activity involved). Our recent group out of the Hotel Palomar hopped aboard one of San Diego’s famous Old Town Trolleys and visited two craft beer hot spots: Mission Brewery in the Gaslamp and Ballast Point Tasting Room in Little Italy.
Tacos, Tequila and Tombstones:
The above client also offered their guests an option to explore San Diego’s culture and heritage in beautiful Old Town. The group visited one of San Diego’s oldest graveyards as well as the famous “haunted” Whaley house. This activity also incorporated tastings only instead of craft beer, participants were treated to tacos and tequila-infused cocktails. Nothing like a little liquid courage to accompany some seriously spooky San Diego history!
