Just goofing around

For anyone who might be considering taking a short trip to San Diego, this is the itinerary we came up with as we went along:

Day 1:
  • Arrived in SD at 1pm, picked up rental car (convertible a must!), and checked into hotel
  • Drove to Ocean Beach (where the opening sequence of Almost Famous was filmed)
  • Visited Old Town San Diego for some overly touristy ambience
  • Spent our night in the Gaslamp District and had dinner at and had this and this
Day 2:
  • Woke up early, walked through Balboa Park, and made sure to allot several hours for the San Diego Zoo (bring your walking shoes!)
  • Had lunch at and ate this
  • Drove up the coast through Pacific Beach, Del Mar, and Encinitas to take in that Pacific breeze
  • Cruised through the mountains to Escondido
  • Had good & cheap Mexican food at JV's and had the best mole ever
  • Went down to Coronado to visit the lovely historic Hotel del Coronado
  • Returned to the Gaslamp District for a nightcap at The Lincoln Room

All in all, I felt like we got a lot out of our trip even though it was a mere 2 days. If I had more days to spend, I would have seen Coronado during the day, stopped at all the coastal towns we passed through, and visited the museums in Balboa Park. Just a warning though, it's absolutely gorgeous there so you might get hooked.
