So I posted this picture a while back and then I started getting a bunch of questions asking where to find the secret swings. Well my friends, today you’re in luck. I’m going to let you in on a little secret, and it’s a good one. The secret swings can be found in La Jolla over at the UCSD area.
About the secret swings
The swings get switched out by the locals every so often and there’s someone that paints the seat with artwork or messages. We went on a plain seat day. Next time I guess…. It’s a quick little trail walk and ends with a beautiful view. We took the long way because we were searching for it, but eventually found it. The walk became a little adventure for us so that was nice.
Where to find it
So I’m sure you’re wondering where the heck is it exactly?!?!?! Well I’m glad you asked and stuck around.
There are 2 ways to get there. One is down the wood plank steps by the Birch Aquarium parking lot, and the other is by the UCSD Coastal Apartments off Discovery Way and Redwood Drive. When you’re finally there, be sure to take it all in and appreciate the beauty all around you, because guess what? You did it. You found the secret swings! LOL, was that zen enough?
San Diego is known for May gray and June gloom, so once the June gloom clears up, I’m sure there will be some spectacular views. Let me know if you’ve ever been or plan on doing so, and make sure to tag me (@spousesproutsme) in your pictures when you do, so I can see which secret swings you got.
