I am moving to San Diego at the end of December and am looking for advice on where to stay. I am a 22 year old male from Ireland and I am a college graduate. I will be trying to find a job before I get there but I am not sure if that will happen or not. Ideally I would like somewhere affordable near the beach, close to public transport, somewhere with accessible shops, bars etc and somewhere safe as well. I know it is probably not possible to have all those but any suggestions would be great and much appreciated, thanks :)
I am visiting San Diego and Laguna Beach the first two weeks of November. Just wondering what people wear during that time period. Sandals or shoes? Capris or long pants? Jeans? For evening dining in a restaurant, a dress or slacks? I assume lightweight sweater would be needed? Thanks!
I'm in charge of planning our holiday work party this year and am looking for creative ideas on places/activities/venues/etc. Something unique and different would be great being that I work for a 12 person advertising agency. I've only lived in northern SD for about a year (moved from the midwest) and still don't know all the best places to go for stuff like this. Thanks for your help!
A friend and I are spending one night ( next Saturday) in San Diego. We arrive at the airport at 10 in the morning, and leave again Sunday at about 3pm. We want to make the most of the trip - we need recommendations for a hotel to stay and things to do. We want to have fun. We love historical places. Thanks!
Could you please recommend which area is nice to stay in for a family of 4 (2 x adults, 2 x kids, aged 4.5 and 6.5yrs).
We will be travelling there from December 17th to December 21st (4 x nights).
We want to take the kids to SeaWorld, the Zoo, Safari Park and will be hiring a car and driving from LA.
We don't mind staying in a hotel or private holiday homes/apartments that you can lease for 4 nights.
Thanks so much :)
Could you recommend one or two hotels/inn good, nice and, cheap, close to Balboa Park, Zoo San Diego, USS Midway?
How many time is necesary to spend for visit The Americas Outlet in San Isidro (San Diego - Outlet - San Diego)?
Is Tijuana worth seeing - is it safe or would I be better off not including it in a trip and doing something else From what I can see it is just a shopping trip without any real Mexican influence and possibly a load of tourist tack - all opinions greatly appreciated
If there's a better Mexican place outside of Old Town, that would be helpful, too. I'm looking for best food, not touristy.
Can anyone recommend a nice camping spot between Long Beach and San Diego? It doesn't have to be on the beach.
Thanks in advance.
Need a recommendation for a place that takes people deep sea fishing for the day?
I am planning to travel to San diego in September with my son who will be studying at UCSD . Whish is the closest hotel to the university ? Is there good enough public transport to roam around the city ?
I recently purchased an international air ticket from U.S. to Canada round trip. The first name on the ticket is the short form of my first name (the first part of my first name) on my US passport. The last names are consistent. Will this be a problem when I check in or go through the security?
My sister and I are both using power wheelchairs and wanting to get to Del Mar Horse Races on August 3rd and August 22 Is that possible and for how much money
I'm heading to San Diego for three nights in september by myself. I was wondering what would be a good area for me to stay in? As I would like to be in walking distance to shops and restaurants ect. And also if possible somewhere that is easy to use public transport as I can't hire a car (I'm only 18). My budget is about $80 - $90 a night. I would prefer a hotel to a hostel.
How much would this cost?
We will be landing in San Diego at 9am and then our flight home doesn't leave until 1pm. Is there anything we could do with an 18 month old (zoo? sea world? other?) during that length of layover. We would have to be back at the airport by noon, so not a ton of time really, but a bit too long to be hanging out at an airport with a bored toddler. We obviously won't rent a car, so would need to take some form of public transit. Sorry, if my question is ridiculous or unrealistic! Our trip is actually to Arizona, but we're flying home via San Diego and just realized the length of the layover, so we've done zero research on this city. Hoping you fine folks can help steer us in some kind of direction - even if it's recommending we stay put. Thanks!
i am going to San Diego to go to college although i am looking for a part time job at the same time. Does anyone know where i can work without a working visa? Other than the school.
Hi All - I have been scuba diving at La Jolla Cove, but what are some other areas in San Diego or surrounds? Also, any recommendations on companies to go with? We like to dive with a guide since we're still fairly new. Thanks!
We will be staying for several days near Jamul, which is inland from San Diego. Does anybody have an recommendations for things to do, places to eat, attractions, etc in that area?
I am very familiar with San Diego proper, so I know much of what there is to do there - I'm looking specifically for info on the interior region.
We are 2 adults and 2 kids, adventurous, outdoors-oriented, lovers of good food, nice parks, odd roadside attractions, etc.
Thanks in advance.

What's the best way to get from SD to LA?
I am active, enjoy walking but since this is my first visit to San Diego, need help on best location for hotel. Senior citizen, so will enjoy few day trips and need help if I decide to travel along coastline, where I can overnight to enjoy ocean. Might consider Gaslamp area for first 2 nights to visit city highlights, am thinking of staying near Oceanside/Cartbad area for next few days. Are these good choices, going north and easy to reach with public transportation? Have been to Santa Barbara and San Lluis Obispo and would like to hear of other stops enroute to San Francisco that I can enjoy. Have been to Monterey and Carmel and if that is best choice will stop over again to enjoy. Last time had a hard time finding affordable hotel in Santa Barbara so need some choices if anyone can help. Many thanks.
How easy is it to get a taxi from the Amtrak station on a Saturday morning?
Does anyone know why the trains are not going into San Diego on January 12, 2013? Will I have problems driving to the Convention Center on that morning or early afternoon?
Thank you in advance.
My wife and I along with another couple will be in San Diego in march for a 4 day week end. We want to stay near the Gas Lamp district, all walking. No zoo or other travel needed. We would like to stay near the water and the gas lamp area, to walk around, good eats and drinks. In our 50's. Where would you recommend? We just want to hang out, walk around and have fun. Thanks
Hello! So me and three of my friends will be in town December 26-29 for a bachelorette party (we are all in our lower 30s), and we are staying in the Gaslamp district.
We're looking for some fun bars/pubs to hit up... rowdier the better! Know of any place that might have some fun activities? I'm thinking wet t-shirt contest...
Our travel agent has recommended staying at the island palms hotel and marina out on shelter island dr. San Diego. This is proving difficult to get to our parks - zoo and legoland as we have no car. The public transport doesnt seem to get us there also. What is the best way to access these areas? is it best to get a car for the 4 days we there. Holiday June 21-27th 2013. Family of 4. Cheers Donna
I will be in San Diego the first week of December. I have a few questions. Is there any special event going on that week? Do i need to rent a car or can i get around town with public transportation like i did in San Francisco? Does San Diego have an equivalent Citypass like San Fran? I can't decide on where to stay....maybe downtown so i can get around easier to other tourist spots? Any suggestions on that? Are there 3 star hotels in downtown for100? I was thinking about using priceline, but not sure yet. Also, how far is it from Del Mar from downtown time wise? Sorry about all these questions. I have alot going through my mind. Thanks.
I have always been fascinated by the idea of a San Diego Vacation. Finally, I have managed to spare a week to fulfill my longtime desire. Have my calendar marked for a vacation during Thanksgiving week. Friends, those of you who have already been to San Diego, please suggest me some good budget hotels in San Diego. Also help me with some information regarding the events taking place during that very week so that I can make the most of my long overdue San Diego vacation.
