Save some room for the beer; San Diego International Beer Festival is the biggest of its kind in California.

- Where? Del Mar Fairgrounds, San Diego
- Price: from $55, see the official website for more details.
If your flight home is the day after the San Diego International Beer Festival, maybe you should reschedule. California's biggest beer festival features over 200 international breweries and a number of speciality craft brews, especially for those hardcore beer lovers.
Across a weekend in June, thousands of people attend this great event which is packed with vendors selling beverages and products such as craft beer art and brewed beer bones. Breweries also enter a huge competition in hope of being given the prize of best beer. In 2016, 1374 entries were received from 254 breweries and if their beer is of a competition standard then it's certainly good enough for us, right?
Activities, games and educational demonstrations will also be present, although we'd recommend enjoying these before sinking a few too many. Plus you'll find an array of tasty food stalls to help line your stomach.
Just remember to purchase a ticket before you attend; then all you'll need to worry about is making it home - after all, you might have a flight to catch the next morning.
- Get there: Fly into San Diego then use the shuttle service to reach the city centre.
- Stay: Find a hotel by the beach in Del Mar.
