Our Area Guide to San Diego is Just the Ticket

Sure, there's more to San Diego than Petco Park and the San Diego Zoo, but we love these because they're so incredibly close to our unique hotel. But in all fairness, so is the San Diego Convention Center, the famous Balboa Park, and practically endless Gaslamp dining and shopping spots. Heck, even the airport is less than 5 miles away (there's plenty of time to sleep in and still make that flight). Here are several of our staff favorites for things to do in San Diego.

    Fun and Free in San Diego

    There are also plenty of free or inexpensive things to do for families. How about some amateur stargazing with astronomers at Balboa Park? Perhaps bird-watching or taking a stroll through the local farmers' markets is more to your liking. Who says you can't please everybody?
