Hello bees! My fiance and I decided we would take a short honeymoon after all. We were going to wait until Jan-Feb since we have a very busy summer filled with training. I’m doing my 3rd Ironman in Sept and we will be in primetime training mode by wedding time. BUT we decided to just go. We both love CALI almost more than each other…….ok just kidding, but we do just love it there. I went to school at Berkeley and lived in Albany. So, we’re headed back to SD instead of SF this time. I’ve only been to SD once, with my brother’s marine graduation SO, please:
Tell me your favorite thing to do in San Diego !!!!!!
We’re staying at the Hilton Spa and Resort on Mission Bay!!!! Eekkkkkkkk 🙂
We have the zoo on our list now let’s hear your favorite things!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Bees! 🙂

We’re heading there for part of our honeymoon as well!
My roommate is from San Diego so I’ve been picking her brain about what she suggests, among them: The Civic Theatre, Museum of Man, Natural History Museum (though she says it’s not as good as it used to be since they remodled), the Zoo… basically Balboa Park in all ( I don’t expect to really go anywhere else as we’ll only be in the city for 2.5 days)

DH and I are foodies. If you love good food make sure you head to the Gaslamp Quarter. There are some amazing places to dine there. We loved Searsucker as well as Nobu. Lots of great little shops for momentos and things as well.
The Zoo really is the best! The shopping and galleries in La Jolla are fantastic and you must take a visit into Old Town.
Balboa Park is a must see.

My fiance is from SD and although I have only been there once to meet some of his family there is SO much to do and see!
Definetly take the ferry from dowtown SD over to Coronado (visit the beach and Hotel Del) and back. It’s very cheap. Go to a Padres game. Visit La Jolla beaches. The Zool. I could name so many things 🙂

NOT Seaworld! Waste of a hundred bucks in my opinion!

I heart the ZOO and La Jolla Cove. It’s so awesome to see the seals in the wild! I know that someone said “no” to Sea World, but if you’ve never been I would go!

I grew up in SD, La Jolla is beautiful. The Coronado beach is a must see, the gold glittery sand is what insipred the yellow brick road in The Wizard of Oz. As previously stated the tide pools are awesome if you guys are into that kind of thing. Sea Port Village is a fun little place to grab lunch do a some shopping and look out onto the ocean. The zoo and wild animal park are really fun too!

I love the gaslamp district for dinner and night time entertainment. The marriott gaslamp has a great rooftop bar that also has a great view of Padres stadium games. Old town has great mexican food and history

we went to SD two summer ago for a week. We rented a house a block from the beach in Pacific Beach. Some of my favorites that week:
heading out onto crystal pier everynight to watch the sufers in the water, going to the different bars and restaurants in PB, walking down from PB to mission beach for the amusement park. We only spent one day in downtown area and it was a PACKED day. we went to the zoo, took the ferry out to coronado island and went to Coronado brewing company, walked down to Hotel Coronado hotel. Went into Old Town for some great mexican food and tequilla! We also rented a car one day and drove up the coast a bit to visit Oceanside and some of the other bars/restaurants up there. There’s a lot of breweries along the coast too (Whcih we’re in to) so we went to Stone Brewery in Escondido. BUt, really, most of our time was spent lounging on the beach and watching the sunset. I LOVE san diego.
