Hi there,
traveling to San Diego in February, any advice on what to do, not to do or what to see while visiting this city?

I love SAN DIEGO!!! I went there two years ago and hubby and I are taking our three kids there again in March. So much to do! Legoland, Wild Animal Park, if you go north to the LA area, make sure you visit the Queen Mary in Long Beach. Other than the chance to see the pandas, I didn't really think The San Diego Zoo was all that great, but Balboa Park is a huge city park (the San Diego Zoo is located in Balboa Park) with a lot to do in a very beautiful setting, about twenty different museums and attractions. Then there is Seaworld, of course. Tidepooling at La Jolla Cove is the best. Old Town State Park is a good way to kill an hour or so and get a relatively good dinner at a reasonable price. I could go on and on. I stayed at Paradise Point Resort, it's on its own island in the middle of Mission Bay. Beautiful (but pricey).

Great shopping in the Cedros design district in Solana Beach. Also, the Quail Botanical Gardens in Encinitas. La Jolla village is a must, as well as the park and bay you'll find there. For nightlife, there's the Gaslamp District downtown San Diego. For the younger crowd there's Pacific Beach. I'm not that crazy about the zoo either, I like the Wild Animal Park in Escondido better. Legoland is strictly for younger kids. Sea World is OK if you've never been, kids like it. There are also lots of plays and concerts going on all the time, check out signonsandiego.com web site. Have fun!!

I'll vouch for the zoo - if you like zoos, you'll like this one. Then ditto what everyone said, plus, take the ferry to Coronado with a picnic basket for eating once you're there. The view of downtown SD from Coronado alone is worth the trip. And if you like shopping, Horton Plaza mall downtown is very cool. I'd skip LA for another time.

Go to see the Hotel Del Coronado - it's worth a visit! They have tours through the hotel telling ghost stories and lots of interesting gossip and information.

Here is a link that might be useful: Hotel Del
