Downtown Running Paths - The Bristol Hotel San Diego


Downtown Running Paths

There are some great running paths within walking distance from The Bristol San Diego – A Boutique Hotel. You can run along the harbor and the embarcadero, run to the convention center, and even run to Balboa Park. If you are more like me, a light jog would be sufficient as well! Downtown San Diego is an ideal place for running and jogging.

1.       Convention Center – This is about a 4.5 mile run to and from our hotel. You can also start the run at Embarcadero Park South for a nice scenic route. Bonus challenge: Run up the 100 steps from the esplanade to the top of the Convention Center.

2.       Broadway Pier – If you are in the mood for a Bayfront run, this is a great choice and lasts about five miles. From the Broadway Pier, head south toward Seaport Village, staying close to the waterline and continuing to the end of Embarcadero Park North.

3.       Harbor Island – Another fantastic scenic route steps from our hotel. You can make this run as long or short as you want, but can go as long as 8 miles if you start from Seaport Village. You will pass a lot of San Diego attractions while on this route such as the USS Midway, Waterfront Park, and the Port of San Diego.

4.       Balboa Park - One of the most rewarding trails is the Florida Canyon Native Plant Preserve, which runs just under four miles. Our hotel is located about 1.5 miles from Balboa Park, making this a decent run!
