    I'm attending a conference (ESRI) in San Diego from August 7th to the following friday (13th)...so other then the obvious Zoo what else is a must see? We'll have a rental car for the weekend for sure but not likely during the week.

    I came across these so far...


    Balboa Park
    San Diego's crown jewel and the nation's largest urban cultural park, this 1,200-acre treasure boasts 15 museums, exquisite art galleries, lush gardens, the award-winning Old Globe Theatre, fine dining and the World-Famous San Diego Zoo.

    Seaworld Adventure Park
    Shamu and his friends are making a big splash here on a daily basis. But don't forget the other amazing shows and attractions including the new "Journey to Atlantis".

    LEGOLAND California
    "Block" out some time for this interactive, imaginative family theme park that is the only one of its kind in North America. Where else can you find 1,000 models fabricated from 30 million Legos!

    The World Famous San Diego Zoo
    Who can resist our giant pandas? Or the 4,000 other rare and endangered birds, mammals and reptiles who call this 100-acre tropical paradise "home."

    The Gaslamp Quarter
    Charming Victorian-style buildings, old-fashioned gas lamps and brick walkways provide a truly stunning setting for one of San Diego's most exciting dining, shopping and entertainment districts. And it's at the Convention Center's doorstep.

    Do yourself a favor and find the Paradise Point Resort near Sea World. It's basically a resort tucked away from public view, probably the nicest in San Diego. You don't have to actually be staying there to experience it. There's a restaurant, a nice outdoor bar area with occasional live bands where you can stand on this small bridge and watch wild sea life swim past underneath(say hi to the shark!). You can rent jet-ski's, paddle boats, etc as well. Also you can stroll along an uncrowded beach area. Perfect couple thing but nice regardless. My family lives in the North County, which is nice in itself, but when we want to get away this is the default choice.

    If you play golf, try to get on Torrey Pines. If you're alone you may be able to get on as a single.

    Scott I'd love to play Torrey but there's no way I can afford those green fees! I'd like to see the club house though

    Golf in San Diego was really cheap when I was there in 1997.

    Too bad you're not in SD this week, since it's the week of the San Diego Comicon, which has turned into more of a multi-media event, where Hollywood stars show up to promote their upcoming projects/films.
