  • Inside San Diego Comic-Con International 2022 | You cruised with us into the Exhibit Hall at the San Diego Convention Center — and it was colorful.
  • Outside San Diego Comic-Con International 2022 | You also loved the sights and activations all over the Gaslamp Quarter — and Michael and I went into other realms.
  • Strand Beach in Oceanside | A perfect summer sunset, need we say more?
  • Coco Maya | You were jazzed about the debut of this “Yucatan-inspired” restaurant in Little Italy.
  • Scrippshenge | The magical “starburst” alignment happens once a year beneath Scripps Pier in La Jolla, and you were there for it.
  • Shibuya Nights | We know San Diegans love a good restaurant, and this spot covered in cherry blossom petals and Japanese-inspired street art certainly caught your eye.

Honorable Mentions | That time when the first round of the San Diego Bay Parade of Lights was canceled due to a storm, and — of course — that beautiful, historic moment on Oct. 15, 2022, when the San Diego Padres beat the Los Angeles Dodgers to win the National League Division Series. What a night.
