Answer by Ruby Osiris
Over the Line might be going on in August, on Fiesta Island – it’s really cool
Old Town has old missions/history of SD stuff
Ocean Beach is my favorite beach here
LA sucks, I went there for a day & hated it
Sea World is cool
Wild Animal Park is different than the zoo, but affilliated with it – the animals run free there
There’s wine tasting at various vineyards (especially in Temecula)
Gaslamp district for nightlife

One of the weirdest sights at the Burning Man Festival is the presence of hundreds of art cars or mutant vehicles gliding across the desert. Order the DVD of festivals at www.festtrek.com

I suggest going to Coronado Island. It is a small town and it is in San Diego. If you have heard of Hotel Del Coronado, it is on Coronado Island. There are theaters, ice cream parlors and a magnificent beach with tide pools and it is pretty large.

Hope this helps

I might plan one day trip to LA for Disneyland, but in all frankness, the rest isn’t worth a lot of time. It’s stuff you might drive by if you’re already in LA, but I wouldn’t normally go out of your way for it. You’re likely to spend most of your day just sitting in traffic on the freeway and looking for parking anyway.

At most I’d venture out of San Diego for Disneyland and Magic Mountain and leave it at that.

Depending on your age, interests, and whether kids will be with you, Legoland (1/2 an hour away in Carlsbad) is a lot of fun. I am 41 and we took our 6 yr old and 8 yr old sons for 2.5 days in June and I could easily have stayed there longer. The Lego creations are amazing, and the rides are fun (there are rides for every age).

It sounds like you have a busy vacation planned! Have a great time!

Mission and Pacific Beach are your best bet for fun in the sun. Belmont Park has a vintage wooden roller coaster (one of two remaining seaside coasters on the west coast) as well as other rides. There is a boardwalk that runs the entire 3 mile length of both beaches. It’s a great place to rent a bike or skates.

Balboa Park is the largest urban cultural park in the country. You can get a park passport which allows you entry to a dozen museums as well as the zoo.

My favorite museum in the park is the San Diego Model Railroad Museum. It has some of the largest model layouts in the world. It is really awesome and a real hidden gem. Kids get in free.

North County San Diego is home to the Zoo’s Wild Animal Park. There are multi acre enclosures where herds of wild animals roam plus lots of hiking trails.

La Jolla offers great views, great surfing, great food, and great shopping.
Check out the surfers at historic Windansea Beach. At low tide you can walk out onto the tide pools. Walk along the Cove and check out the caves. Visit the Museum of Contemporary Art. Take a stroll on Prospect St and check out the shops, galleries, and have some authentic Mexican food at Alfonso’s. Then head to the Birch Aquarium at The Scripps Institution of Oceanography. It has a spectacular view of the bluffs over the Pacific Ocean.

Take the trolley from Downtown to Old Town. There is a state park there that recreates life in the Mexican and early American periods of 1821 to 1872. There are also a lot of restaurants in the area. Pizza Bella has the best pizza in town as well as homemade Italian food.

The Old Point Loma Lighthouse at the Cabrillo National Monument offers great views of the downtown skyline, San Diego Harbor and the Pacific Ocean. On a clear day you can see all the way to Mexico.

The USS Midway is an aircraft carrier turned into a museum

For nightlife, the Gaslamp Quarter offers dining, drinking and dancing. It’s also the home of Petco Park and the San Diego Padres major league baseball team.

Pacific Beach also has some great nightlife.
