San Diego, CA, June 30, 2017 - FunGig is an exciting new way for people to find cheap things to do in San Diego. Creator Steve Young recently explained why he started the company and how he came up with the idea.

Steve is a big snowboarder who realized a couple of years ago that the best times he had on a new mountain were when he teamed up with locals who could point out the best lines and where to find the freshest powder. Since then he had been trying build on those experiences and to think of ways to pair locals with tourists or newcomers to help them find fun things to do in San Diego.

It occurred to him that many people, including himself, fall into ruts where they are simply working and coming home just to sit in front of the TV or cell phones, tablets, or computer screens. An easy way to break free from these ruts is to connect with other locals who are “in the know” and can provide insight into cheap things to do in San Diego.

Steve created FunGig so people can simply look at their phone and find something to do in their area at a certain time and within their budget. A quick look at FunGig provides Funseekers with awesome activities that they might not have otherwise thought of and that can be enjoyed with a local expert.

FunGig believes that life is for living, not passively sitting around staring at a screen. Visit to sign up as a Funseeker to find great things to do in San Diego or as a Funbassador to share a skill while earning some extra spending money.
