Holiday By The Bay San Diego As Captured By the Pixel 3

Ice Bumper Cars at Holiday By the Bay

San Diego is better known for palm trees and sun soaked beaches than ice and snow. Through the wonders of technology and a bit of imagination, the plaza out front of the San Diego Hilton Bayfront has been transformed into a winter wonderland this year. Holiday By The Bay is a winter festival for kids of all ages ... and there are even some tasty holiday cocktails just for adults!

All photos included in this post were taken by the Pixel 3 provided to me by Verizon. I've been using it in a few different adventures recently and I'm extremely impressed by both how the core phone operates with fast, stable, and efficient stock Android - as well as the amazing camera. These photos were all taken with automatic settings and no editing or filters other than cropping the photos. A new phone makes for a great holiday gift so you can capture all those awesome memories this year.
