Because, aviously…

One of the more popular posts from my trips is the cost of it, as it allows people to see what a similar vacation would cost them, should they take it. San Diego was the first trip that I went by plane, so the prices are more volatile, and I’ll say it not based on what …

Before I went to San Diego everyone told me that I would HAVE to visit the Hotel del Coronado. I marked it down, but had no plans of visiting it, until I ran out of things to do on the last day there. What a waste of time. Sure, the Hotel is famous, having been …

Part 1 focused on the animals, but now I’ll turn to the attractions and “Safari” part of the Safari Park. Park in the lot and walk through their long paths, but when you get to the African Plains you finally get the opportunity to hop on a safari car and head up to the animals…almost. …

The San Diego Padres, while not a great team in recent years, plays in the beautiful Petco Park, and a tour there should be on everyone’s list while visiting the city. The tour takes you through many aspects of the park, including: Press Box – See where all the writers, from the AP to MLB, …

Taking a Harbor Cruise seems like a great idea in most cities. It gives you a great view of the skyline, and generally a nice look at what a city has to offer. But in the case of San Diego, save your time and money, and head to the sites themselves for better views, for …

My final installment of the museums at Balboa Park, in addition to Natural History and the Model Railroad Museums, will be on two museums that are right next door to each other, in the corner of the park. Air & Space Museum This museum will take you in a loop around a central pavilion, going through …
