USA: California, 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
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
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
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
United, American, and other airlines fly to San Diego. There are also a
number of commuter flights from Los Angeles. For additional information about
