USA: California, San Diego

TravelPage.com Rating:Four Stars

Skyline of San Diego Even though it is the second largest city in California, San Diego has a small town flavor. Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the mountains, it offers visitors a wide variety of activities and places to visit. If you have 3-4 hours to spare, we recommend driving down from Los Angeles, or if you have a direct flight into San Diego, driving up the coast to take in a the view.

When you get to San Diego, make sure you visit the beaches (best time is between May and November), the renovated Gaslamp district, Old Town, and the island of Coronado. The downtown area near the convention center and the Marriott have really been turned around and there are lots of nice restaurants, shops, and bars to visit. If you go to the Gaslamp district, make sure you stop into one of the micro-breweries to taste the local brews. If you go to Old Town, try one of the Mexican restaurants - we like the Old Town Mexican Café y Cantina (619.297.4330).

As far as hotels are concerned we really like the Hotel del Coronado (800.468.3533). It's not cheap but it's a classic (opened in 1888) and if you have the money well worth at least one night's stay. Make sure you ask for a room in the original building because the newer buildings are just like any other hotel and not necessarily worth the price. The original building has a beautiful lobby (especially around Christmas) and balconies overlooking the beach. It is also rumored to have a ghost! The outdoor pool is 50 meters and heated so you can get a workout year-round.

If you decide to stay on Coronado, make sure you take a boat across the bay to downtown and also consider renting bicycles to tour the island. If you like airplanes keep your eyes open for jets landing at the Naval Air Station on North Island. We also like the Chart House restaurant for steaks and sea food (619.435.0155)

United, American, and other airlines fly to San Diego. There are also a number of commuter flights from Los Angeles. For additional information about San Diego visit San Diego Insider or contact the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau, 1200 3rd Avenue, Suite 824, San Diego, California 92109 Telephone: 619.232.3103.
