Entertainment & Activities
Comfortable theaters with IMAX and RPX sound. Great place to catch a movie after dinner. There are LOTS of theaters in San Diego. I like this one because it is so close to home.

Sea World is a must if you are visiting for the summer. The park is open later and there is a firework show during closing hours. Lots to see: local marine life, shows, and amusement rides/roller coasters. It is a great way to spend the day with the family or even date night!

Parks & Nature
You can ride a bike or walk/jog along the paved path or take a stroll down alongside the hiking path close to the lake. Beautiful and peaceful...especially during sunrise or sunset! Also a good meetup location for group activities on the weekend.

Great views of San Diego! Old lighthouse with lots of hiking. Also, check your tide calendars...on the other side of Cabrillo there are tide pools galore! Don't forget your camera!

Great spot for breakfast or a Sunday Brunch. Come and see why they call this spot 'The Jem'. The seals on the beach are always entertaining, the children's pool is great for a swim with your family, and there are several places where you could rent a stand up paddle board or kayak to get a closer view of the action.

Have you ever been face to face with a lion?? You can do that here at the Wild Animal Park (AKA San Diego Zoo Safari Park). You can also take a safari ride through the park! Lots of entertainment and wild animals. Another great way to spend a day.

Museums on rainy (or sunny!) days, dining for families and adults, quiet walks on the hiking trails throughout the park or in the Japanese Friendship Garden, theater at the Old Globe, Giant Dome Theatre (at Reuben H. Fleet), and several more to list. It is a great way to spend a day or two in San Diego!

The symphony has a lot to offer. Bayside Summer Nights is a fun event and a wonderful way to spend an evening with family or friends and enjoy food, drinks, and a wide variety of music genres. Check out their summer (2016) selection: http://www.box-officetickets.com/CA/San-Diego/Embarcadero-Marina-Park-South-Tickets?&gclid=Cj0KEQjwyum6BRDQ-9jU4PSVxf8BEiQAu1AHqhniwW8vwDuErius8cepJgp6hgDeUGh4HrxmssnxlscaAs7i8P8HAQ

My favorite mall...lots of fun dining and shopping. I especially like this mall because it is not enclosed--so be aware it is not a great place to shop if it is raining...but it is a great place to shop if you want a wide variety of stores and a fun atmosphere. There also have a stage in their food court that sometimes has events and live music. Looking for ice skating? UTC has it! Arc Light Theatre is located in the mall if you would like the experience of a luxurious movie theater and bar. Currently (summer of 2016 and into the fall of 2016) there is a fair amount of construction happening in the mall. Parking is messy, but available. It is also uncharacteristically loud for this mall...

Great location in downtown San Diego. There is a huge selection of shops and dining here, with a movie theater, and local theater too (San Diego Repertory Theatre). Walking around the mall, however, is like walking through a MC Escher painting...lots of stairways that don't necessarily lead to what you would expect. The parking is a little confusing too...make sure you remember EXACTLY where you parked your car or you will spend a lot of time looking for it!
