Congratulations, you two will have a lot of fun! I love Disneyland; it’s probably a little bit unhealthy! You guys absolutely have to eat at the Carthay Circle Restaurant in California Adventure while you’re there; it’s absolutely lovely. It’s a little fancier than the Blue Bayou, but a ton of fun; it feels like you’ve stepped back into the 1930’s. I’d also recommend taking an evening to watch World of Color at California Adventure park. It’s worth trying to get the priority seating through either purchasing the box lunch or through buying a “qualifying meal” (one entree and either an appetizer or a dessert per adult) at one of the participating restaurants (Carthay Circle counts!), because the view is so much better than the seating you get just from the Fast Pass seating. Have fun!

Hi! Congrats on your super fun honeymoon! I live in San Diego county and actually just discovered my favorite new neighborhood. It’s called North Park and it’s located along University Ave off of the 805 freeway, not far from SDSU. It has all the funky charm of the Gaslamp district but not as crowded and not as expensive (parking etc.) There is a really fun wine bar called Splash which is basically a self serve wine tasting place. So fun. All along that street are TONS of really fun and unique bars and restaurants.

If you do go to the Gaslamp district you should check out the Shout House. It’s a dualing piano bar within walking distance to everything (which everything is in the Gaslamp). So much fun!!

Also check out Living Social or Groupon for deals on activities. I think February is still whale watching season!

Check out Little Italy. It is hands down my favorite neighborhood in San Diego – I lived there for 3 years and still go down there frequently. If you’re in town on a Saturday morning there’s a farmers market on Date Street running from about Union to Kettner. It’s always a fun vibe – great food, floral, craft, farm vendors and live music at two different spots. Try Joe’s on the Nose for coffee and grab a Panini at Seb’s, or if you’re looking for a good brunch, try Prep Kitchen at the corner of Date and India or wander over to The Waterfront on Kettner for good greasy bar brunch. There’s a view of the harbor from the market and you’ll often see sailboats out all over the place on a nice day. It’s an easy walk down to the water to see the Star of India, Midway Museum, and a huge sculpture of The Kiss (the sailor kissing the nurse) and from there it’s not much further of a walk to the convention center and Seaport Village – though be warned, Seaport Village is uber touristy but I suppose that’s ok since you’ll be a tourist ;). Little Italy is very close to the flight path for planes landing at SAN, so if you want a close up view of a fly over, head to the corner of Ivy and Albatross. That’s also a good area to park in (for free!) and walk over to the market – if you don’t mind a bit of a stroll.

Other good places to eat in that area include: Extraordinary Desserts (as PP mentioned the Hillcrest location is adorable!), Bankers Hill Bar and Restaurant, Burger Lounge, Mona Lisa (I can only vouch for the deli counter, not the actual restaurant), Buon Appetito or Sogno Davino, Enoteca Style for a generous pour of wine, and finally Papalecco is a very Italian coffee shop in the area. I also like Caffe Italia (cash only). One more thing, if you’re into craft beer, then you know that San Diego is heaven for that. Definitely check out Bottlecraft.

So clearly I’m a fan of Little Italy, but RiverBride13 is right that North Park is pretty awesome too! It’s a more artsy vibe. It is home to my favorite chocolate chip cookie at Claire de Lune. And very good french toast at The Mission.

Have a blast at Disney and I hope you enjoy San Diego! Congrats, too 🙂
