Get the door, it's the liquor store
San Diego is, “the greatest city in the history of mankind” according to the fabled news anchor Ron Burgundy. Lakeside... takes that greatness, cooks it medium, slaps some bacon on it and serves it at Happy Hour prices. Flanked by the Cuyamaca Mountains, Lakeside views the city and the Pacific beyond it and a vast, natural playground at its back. Lakeside got its name from the small, natural Lindo Lake that sits at its center. However, it’s now a freshwater oasis — it’s loaded with reservoirs including Lake Jennings, San Vicente Reservoir and El Capitan Reservoir. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife stocks these bodies of water with rainbow trout, catfish, largemouth bass and other species to make this little town of 20,000 a fisher’s paradise. There are also tons of horseback riding, biking, hiking and views of El Cajon Mountain. It’s always awesome to be 20 minutes from downtown and not have to deal with the commotion of the city — and that, friends, is what Lakeside is. Drizly also serves it with on-demand alcohol. All you have to do is pick your favorites from our app and they’ll appear at your door within an hour.
