llevinso :  San Diego! But that’s my hometown, so I’m biased.

I would choose Denver because I’m not really a beach person. Plus I’m an urban planner and Denver is the hot place right now haha. Do you prefer beaches or mountains?

llevinso :  The zoo is amazing! So is the wild animal park. Arpil will be kind of cold in San Diego (like high 60s lows 70s) definetly not beach weather. But there’s so much so do. If you like historical stuff there’s Balboa Park, Old Town, the missions. There’s all kinds of hiking and sightseeing like Torrey Pines, La Jolla, Sea World, Point Loma, Sunset Cliffs, USS Midway. If you like being on the water, the bay cruises out of downtown are really neat.

llevinso :  never been to Denver but I loved San Diego! And I was only there for work so I didn’t get to fully explore the city. The weather is absolutely amazing, all the time. Like, perfect every day. The culture there is really cool too. In Old Towne you honestly feel like you could be in Mexico. I’ve heard Gas Light is amazing for nightlife but we didn’t make it. Even if you aren’t beach people, head over to Coronado and go to the beach. It’s so beautiful and the sand is so soft. The beaches are huge too so you don’t feel like you’re on top of someone else. Definitely visit La Jolla and see the sea lions if they’re there in April (not really sure of when they come in and out of the area). They’re really cool to see and you can get pretty close, although they’ll let you know when you get to close haha. I’ll warn you though, they smell horrible. I thought I’d be able to handle it because I own horses and have been around plenty of smelly farm animals but their smell is on a whole other level. But it was totally worth it!

I think it’s a bit early in the year for Denver… if you’re going outside, surely you’d like leafy trees rather than old, tired snow. San Diego

Either place is going to be fun but Denver has a lot of micro brews and resturants and theres a ton of outdoor stuff to do. And April is going to be pretty nice (they have been having a warm year).

i’ve never been to Denver, but lived in San Diego for 6 years. I still love it, and miss it too!

There’s a ton of stuff to do, particularly if you like history, Check out the Hotel Del Cornado for lunch or whatever…. take  a nice walk at the beach. Old Town is great, you can’t get bad Mexican food anywhere in the city 🙂 I’m a buger girl and there’s a well known restaurant called Hodad’s that makes great burgers. Balboa park is beautiful too.

llevinso :  Outdoors and beer = Denver. I would actually stay in Boulder (where I live). Tons of breweries (Avery is my fav and has amazing food too), super easy access to hiking, and a few neat historic hotels right downtown. There’s also the outdoor pearl street mall that has cool history. Estes Park is less than an hour away as well which has Rocky Mountain National Park and my favorite, the Stanley Hotel which was the inspiration for The Shining. They even do ghost tours at night.
