Tour of Southern California: Day 4

It was our last day in Southern California! What should we do? Ummm....haven't we done enough? I'm 40 now...I get tired easily. LOL! So, we hit the spa. The spa at the Ritz Carlton Los Angeles is really nice. The facility is beautiful,the customer service is top notch, and the massages were very good. I can definitely see why the Ritz Carlton is rated highly in LA for their spa.

Our stay at the Ritz Carlton came to an end and we were on our way to rent a car so that we could drive to San Diego, California. We ended up staying a little longer getting the car rental than expected..... (take a look):

When we arrived in San Diego, California we checked into The US Grant Hotel. Please take a look at our review of the hotel below.

Once we were settled in the room, our stomachs were growling so loud that we knew that it was time to eat. I was ready....I had my list. I couldn't wait to try all of "the best" restaurants in San Diego. Anthony and I are obsessed with Mexican food, so we couldn't wait to try "El Agave."

When we arrived at the restaurant, I was hesitant. Okay, I'll be honest, I was quickly having second thoughts. The restaurant was on the second floor of an older building and there was very little parking available. I looked at Anthony and he looked at me. I am sure he could read my thoughts. I promise you....we've been married long enough where he can take one look at my face and know everything. He said, "Don't worry, maybe it looks nicer inside. Plus, the parking lot is full...that's always a good sign." I took a deep breath and got out of the car. As I walked up the stairs, I saw someone walking ahead of me. I asked him, "Hi, have you been here before?" He responded flatly, "No, this is my first time. I saw this restaurant on TripAdvisor and it has high reviews." Ugh...another person going in blindly.

When we reached the top of the stairs, we were greeted by the manager. He greeted us with a smile and took us to our seats. The restaurant was cozy and clean; it was 50% full and it was only the afternoon. As I walked to my seat, I peeked at the drinks and food on the tables and my anxiety lifted with each step. The craft cocktails looked beautiful and the dishes looked even better. A lovely couple sat beside us and we immediately began to chat it up. El Agave is one of their favorite restaurants in San Diego, so the assured us that we made the right choice. Our experience was getting better by the minute; the drinks were so unique and creative. The food (excuse me while I drool as I think about it)....the food was INCREDIBLE! It was easily the best Mexican food that I have ever had.... and I will definitely go back the next time that I am in San Diego.

That evening, we left with content tummies and explored San Diego from our rental car. We drove up and down the streets, while we tried to see as much as we could until the sun set. Come back to see what we did on Day 5!
