Beyond Beaches In San Diego

Jul 17, 2008
San Diego is touted as a tremendous vacation destination. As a local, I can tell you it is. From family events to a vibrant nightlife, there is something for everyone and you'll never get bored.

The World Famous San Diego Zoo can make the garish claim for a good reason. It is pretty amazing. Snuggled five minutes from downtown San Diego in the middle of Balboa Park, the zoo is a collection of beautiful space and animals.

Now for something completely different. You haven't lived until you've gone grunion hunting. Grunion are little fish that come up on the beach to breed in the middle of the night during full moons. You chase them. Adult beverages are recommended.

Like to play the slots? A good card game sound fun? Well, gambling is illegal in San Diego County. However, Indian reservations have no such restrictions and they surround San Diego. Sycuan's is a popular one.

Balboa Park is an excellent area for spending a day. You can just kick back and people watch or you can take in the various museums in the park. They range from historical to space museums. If all else fails, the zoo is also there.

Like the idea of a Safari? The Wild Animal Park in San Diego has animals in open spaces. You can view them by hopping on a train that scoots through the park. Wild animals not in cages, oh my!

San Diego and beaches are two terms that go together. There are lots of little beaches. If you want a beach with a bit of a hippie vibe, Ocean Beach is the place. From head shops to beer bars, OB has a little something for everyone.

Looking for something really different? How about bull fighting? They don't allow it in San Diego, but you can hop across the border and catch it in Tijuana. The bull ring is located on the coast to the west of the city.

From golfing to hang gliding to just about anything you can think of, San Diego has it. Drive, fly, take a train or walk to San Diego and you will be happy you did at the end of the trip. In fact, many people never actually go home.
