Fireworks over San Diego Bay

July 2:

Last chance to get your fill of “Out of this World” food at the San Diego County Fair, at the Del Mar Fairgrounds through July 4. $13.

July 5:

The Prado Restaurant in Balboa Park piggybacks on MOPA’s West Coast debut of The Jazz Loft Project photography exhibition with a Thursday night three-course dinner series featuring jazz-inspired menu selections, a bottle of wine, and two tickets to the exhibit. $79.95 per couple.

July 6:

In need of a little exercise inspiration? Head to the three-day IDEA World Fitness Convention and surround yourself with 6,000-plus fitness professionals, getting pumped about the latest trends.

July 7:

Once you experience the midnight roar of a nearby lion at the Safari Park’s unique Roar and Snore overnight campout, your partner’s snoring will seem like child’s play. $182 and up.

Tacos, tortas, and tamales, oh my! Let your inner glutton indulge on budget-friendly eats at the Old Town Grub Sprawl. $5 per sample.

July 11

Get to Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens early enough to grab a seat for its free outdoor movies, every Wednesday night through August 29.

July 12:

You know it’s time for Comic-Con when you see more superheroes than stilettos on the streets of downtown.

July 14:

South Park’s feelin’ groovy at its Summer of Love walkabout and Beech Street BBQ.

Get fancy in French foodie style at the Westgate Hotel’s Bastille Day four-course wine pairing dinner. $59.
