Question by AnnalynneR: Where should I go during the 10 days I’m spending in San Diego this August?
I am planning on the following:
Balboa Park
Astronaut Museum
Beach!
San Diego Zoo

Day trips to Los Angeles
Disney Land
Chinese Theater
Hollywood
Museum of Modern Art

What am I missing? Any specific cool activites/ festivals/ must sees in San Diego??

Thanks!!

Best answer:

Answer by Ruby Osiris
Over the Line might be going on in August, on Fiesta Island – it’s really cool
Old Town has old missions/history of SD stuff
Ocean Beach is my favorite beach here
LA sucks, I went there for a day & hated it
Sea World is cool
Wild Animal Park is different than the zoo, but affilliated with it – the animals run free there
There’s wine tasting at various vineyards (especially in Temecula)
Gaslamp district for nightlife
