Tips from locals
This is a beautiful, castle-like hotel built in 1886 and on the most haunted list for sure! It's located on the beach on Coronado Island. Not only is it a lovely trip over the bridge, but the downtown Coronado area is fun too. You can tour this old hotel and visit any of its bars and restaurants on…
Historic hotel on the beach. Some say it is a haunted hotel and there are many theories and stories behind it.
Historic and absolutely breathtaking. Ice skating rink during the holidays is magical.
One of the most famous places in the world. A must see when visiting San Diego.

“The San Diego Zoo is world famous for not only its exhibits but also for its contributions to the natural world. The Zoo, located adjacent to downtown San Diego in Balboa Park, is 100 acres in size. It is well known for its lush, naturalistic habitats and unique animal encounters and is home to more than 3,700 rare and endangered animals representing approximately 660 species and subspecies and a prominent botanical collection with more than 700,000 plants. It is viewed in several ways, first and foremost by walking along pathways, into aviaries, and through bioclimatic zones. There is a 35-minute Guided Bus Tour that gives a good overview of the Zoo.”

Theme Park Ride / Attraction
“Much to please the senses at Balboa Park! Museums are fantastic: SD Museum of Man, Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, SD Natural History Museum, SD Museum of Art, Japanese Friendship Garden, Mingei (has cool things made by people all over the world - currently closed for remodeling), Museum of Photographic Arts, Model Railroad Museum, SD Air and Space Museum (incredibly inspiring), SD History Center, SD Museum of Man (yes, listed twice!) ... and an automobile museum and more. And ... opening in 2021... Comic-Con Museum! Food and art are accessible throughout the walkable destinations. Take a self-guided tour of sculptures recently arranged outside, around the plaza leading to two art museums and a popular bistro (w/ good curry fries and talented musicians, says our 14-yr old daughter). Other choices include an elegant sit-down restaurant (inside or out) with delicious food - one in a collection of outstanding culinary contributions to San Diego County by the well known Cohn Restaurant Group, a walk-up window for snacks and quick food items near Spanish Village (find similar foods at the RH Fleet Science Museum) and one more... Above the Model Railroad Museum, there is a deli with wonderful everything to please everyone. Fresh sandwiches, salads, desserts, coffee. Great spot in the park. Order a picnic to go! SO HAPPY THEY HAVE RETURNED TO BALBOA Park!!! Rose gardens, botanical gardens, historic trees and the Zoro butterfly garden (great for kids!) provide colorful and and peaceful settings that - in my mind - collectively honor Kate Sessions: pioneering SD botanist, horticulbotanist and landscape architect named "Mother of Balboa Park". Theaters include a children's theater, a Shakespeare theater and a puppet theater, not to mention themed movies played in the museums. San Diego Natural History Museum is Denise's favorite. While she enjoys memberships at all of them, she could make this place her home. Founded in 1874, it is the oldest scientific institution/museum in southern California and the third oldest in the western U.S. (west of the Mississippi). Known officially as the San Diego Society of Natural History... "Early society members established a weather station, petitioned to create Torrey Pines State Reserve, and garnered support for the new San Diego Zoological Society." Dinosaur fossils. Marine fossils. Explore habitats that present the ecology and biological diversity that keep the natural world thriving. See what museum naturalists spend their time researching - both from San Diego and on expeditions around southern California and Baja California. OK, enough. Go. Spanish Village - See demonstrations and browse the works of wonderful resident artists in their studios spaces. And ride on the carousel.... and so much more!”

“Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is 2,000 acres of coastal state park located in the community of La Jolla, off North Torrey Pines Road. Although it is located within San Diego city limits, it remains one of the wildest stretches of land (8 km²) on the Southern California coast. The reserve consists of a plateau with cliffs that overlook Torrey Pines State Beach, and a lagoon that is vital to migrating seabirds.”
