The Ultimate Guide to San Diego Murals

Murals are all the rage right now, and unless you've been living under a rock you know that they've taken over our Instagram feeds. San Diego is one of the best places in the country to take photos with fun murals, second only to Los Angeles. When I first went on the hunt for fun and colorful San Diego murals, I found it very hard to get the info I needed to actually go visit them. So I did all the legwork for you guys and complied this list complete with addresses you can put straight into your GPS. Have fun and snap away Instagrammers!
