    When you go to Coronado, take a ride over the Coronado bridge and take a wander around the Hotel del Coronado, then come back to San Diego on the ferry.

    If it's a really clear day, drive up to top of Mount Soledad. The view at sunset is to die for.

    For shopping, drift through Horton Plaza -- but when you get hungry, leave there and head out to the Gaslamp Quarter. over 10 years ago

    Hit up the Harbor (just South of the airport) and you can take in the Maritime Museum, the ferry to Coronado, tour a real aircraft carrier (The Midway), and grab lunch at the Fish Market. Then walk East on Broadway a few blocks to India, turn left and wander through Little Italy. Grab desert and coffee while taking in the culture.

    Left on Hawthorn and you're back where you parked by the harbor. Or right at the next traffic light (Laurel) and you're at the entrance to Balboa Park. If you like walking, you can take in all 3 in a day.

    +1 on eating Mexican Food. If you stay on India to Laurel, one block before Laurel is El Camino. Great Mexican food. Authentic with a touch of gourmet. about 10 years ago

    San Diego Zoo of course! I'd suggest the wildlife park where you can go on a safari. You can feed giraffes some leaves and take a picture with their head right next to yours. over 9 years ago

    Stay at the Westgate! I had a tendency to get caught up in all of the modern flare of the Gaslamp Quarter ,but i didn't feel truly at home until I stayed there. http://www.westgatehotel.com/ about 8 years ago
