Beyond The Guide Book for San Diego

Jul 20, 2008
I'm fortunate enough to have lived in San Diego much of my life. I've traveled over seas many times, but always come back. Why? Because there is so much to do. If you are going to be visiting, here are some ideas to keep you busy and happy.

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.

Bro, I wanna surf. If this sounds like a good statement to you, I have great news. San Diego is stuffed with surf schools. You can look them up online or ask around your area. There's one just about every three blocks.

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!

Looking to do a bit of dancing. From the Tango to line dancing to whatever is hot, one needs look no farther than downtown San Diego. Head over to E street and prepare to burn off dinner with some seriously fun gyrating.

Does the "Deadliest Catch" catch your fishing fancy? Why not try it out for a day. You can take day fishing trips on trollers from downtown San Diego and Oceanside in North County. It costs less than $100 and is a blast.

This represents only a tiny list of the many things you can do in San Diego. I've lived here for 30 plus years and still find new things to do. People are friendly. The place is beautiful and fun is available at just about every turn. See you soon, dude!
