Entertainment & Activities
Amazing zoo and botanical garden! A must see if you come to San Diego. If you plan to go to both the zoo and the safari park and think you might want to go more than one day each, it is cheaper to buy a year's pass.

Popular beach with grassy areas, children's play ground and gently sloping beach. If you go snorkeling in the south part of the beach (in front of the hotels) you may find yourself snorkeling with sharks (non aggressive) and guitar fish. I did it once.

Lots of museums in close proximity (as well as near the zoo). There are art, train, natural history, science, aeronautical,... museums. There is a Japanese garden and a botanical center.

Most of the rest of the museums are free one Tues of a month. Check out the website of the one/s you want to go to and find out which Tues is their free day.

They don't have everything but what they do have is significantly less expensive. We like their organic milk, eggs, yogurt and meats (although they don't always have much selection of organic meats). They have a great selection of gluten free stuff. And their chocolate is better than Trader Joe's.

If you have never been to Trader Joe's I urge you to go. At first glance it is not impressive - a small, specialty type grocery store. But their products & prices grow on you and before you know it you are driving 3 hours to go to one (if you live in Alabama)! All their products (with the TJ label) are non-GMO and they have fresh baked Gluten Free as well as regular things.
