Answer by John
jit, gave a lot of nice links. I’m going this weekend to go surfing, rent a jet ski & hopefully sailing a small 16′ boat.
I love the water. The bay is fairly warm, but the Pacific is cold. Try surfing. Remember to rent a wetsuit at a local surf shop.
You can rent a board & wetsuits for $ 30 ish. If it’s your 1st time hire an instructor for about $ 20-
I can only get up & the board & I just love it. Have fun!

Ocean beach has a lot to see http://obhotel.com/
I’m not necessarily recommending this hotel, it’s just to let you see what’s there.

    San Diego is one of the nicest cities in the country. It’s a major tourist destination and there are tons of things to do. With 70 miles of beautiful beaches, countless parks and gardens, major league sports, dozens of golf courses, world class museums, Tony Award winning theater, great cuisine, best weather in the country, high tech industry, major universities, and the best zoo in the world, it’s my choice as THE place to live and play in the USA.

    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 strand (boardwalk) that runs the entire 3 mile length of both beaches. It’s a great place to walk, run, sun, rent a bike or skates.

    Some must see attractions are the world famous Zoo, Sea World, and Balboa Park. Known as the “Smithsonian of the West” 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.

    Other attractions in the park are the Air and Space Museum, Ruben H. Fleet Science Center and IMAX theater, the Natural History Museum, the Museum of Man, the Automotive Museum, the Old Globe Theatre, the Hall of Champions, the Botanical Gardens, and the largest outdoor pipe organ in the world (free concerts on Sunday).

    North County San Diego is home to the Zoo’s Safari Park. There are multi acre enclosures where herds of wild animals roam plus lots of hiking trails. It’s worth the visit and is a different experience from the zoo. You can ride a zip line, tour the park on a Segway, or take a photo caravan into the enclosures and feed the giraffes.

    La Jolla offers great views, great surfing, great food, great theater, 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. The Tony award winning La Jolla Playhouse is located nearby on the campus of UCSD. For a few laughs at night, The Comedy Store is on Pearl St.

    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.

    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. It’s a great place to go whale watching as they migrate along the coast.

    The USS Midway is an aircraft carrier turned into a museum

    The Maritime Museum offers a hands-on look at San Diego’s days as a bustling seaport. You can tour the Star of India, the world’s oldest active merchant sailing ship.

    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.

    SEAL tours offer a 90-minute, narrated ride in an amphibious vehicle. Tours leave from Seaport Village and takes you past the Maritime Museum, Shelter Island, and other attractions before entering San Diego Bay for the second part of you tour.

    You might want to try hot air ballooning. You can enjoy a ride with unique views of the mountains, Pacific Ocean, or the coastline.
    For options see: http://www.san-diego-attractions.net/san-diego-outdoor-activities.html

    If you like shopping, I recommend Seaport Village. It is a shopping mall with more than 50 stores and is located downtown on San Diego Bay at Kettner Blvd. and West Harbor Drive. It is my favorite place to shop in San Diego.

    The city is covered by beach on the west coast, bordered with Mexico to the south, and only about two hours north is LA.

    I think San Diego would be an awesome place to visit!

    The places you can go here are: Disneyland, SeaWorld, Legoland, Balboa Park, Old Town and there is a little historic park up north called Julian.

    Julian is town about an hour north that has all the old 1800’s buildings, a nice amount of snow in the winter, a cool cornfield maze, fresh apple picking year-round, a pumpkin patch through all of October and the best pie you’ve ever tasted! 😀
