While California is known for its laid-back atmosphere, that doesn’t mean there aren’t countless things to do and see, especially in San Diego. The coastal town is perfect for everyone, from solo travelers to families looking to enjoy the trip of a lifetime. Situated along the downtown waterfront, InterContinental San Diego is an ideal home base. While you can certainly explore the sights by foot, there’s another great option. For a fun way to explore San Diego, reserve your spot on a bike tour.

A Checklist of 5 San Diego Tours on Two Wheels

When staying at our San Diego hotel, you can enjoy countless guided outings, including those on the open water and dry land. Bike tours allow you to travel at a leisurely pace while exploring some of the neighborhoods and attractions that make the California town so special. 

  • Another Side of San Diego Tours has several excursions to choose from. Ride around Balboa Park or make your way through the Gaslamp Quarter. Most tours last roughly two hours.
  • For a different kind of bike tour, check out Social Cycle. Able to seat 16 people, this mode of transportation is manually powered by its riders and operated by a “captain.”
  • At We Love Tourists, your tour is made less taxing thanks to electric bikes. Reserve one of their fantastic tours, or work with an expert tour guide to create a custom route.
  • If you’re looking to explore Coronado Island, Paradise Trike Tours is an excellent option. Offering both electric bike and trike tours, there’s an adventure that works well for your itinerary.
  • When booking a tour through Unlimited Biking, you have the choice of private or public rides. The private tour will be tailored for your group, while the public option includes stops at some of San Diego's most well-known attractions.

Why Make InterContinental San Diego Your Home Away from Home

The last thing you want on vacation is to be far away from all the fun. Booking your stay at InterContinental San Diego means you’ll be in the middle of all the action. Whether exploring San Diego on a bike tour, enjoying laughs at a comedy club, or getting drinks at a rooftop bar, there’s no shortage of things to do.


Most importantly, staying at our San Diego hotel means you’ll have a luxurious yet cozy place to call home.
