San Diego, California

Headed into San Diego from the Temecula area. The weather had other plans for a day at the San Diego Zoo, so headed over to Coronado. Checked out the Hotel Del Coronado – beautiful resort with a pristine beach. Walked around Coronado for a bit and checked out a local grocery store deli for some lunch to go. Had lunch by Mission Bay at a local park close to the hotel we would be staying at. After some lunch went and checked out Mission Beach before checking in at the hotel. Later on we went and checked out Pacific Beach and the Pier – that pier moves when the waves hit – perfect place to be as the sun was setting for the evening.

Stayed at The Dana on Mission Bay. There were two pool areas – one facing the bay and the other tucked in with tropical plants. The hotel offers robes and beach towels to guests for the pool – really nice touch. We ate at the Firefly Restaurant for dinner one evening and then checked out the other restaurant The Blue Pearl for breakfast. Check out the hotel’s Special Packages – the package we choose offered free parking, free wireless internet and a $20 food credit per day – plus rooms have a microwave and small fridge. Also, our room had a small patio.

The next day turned out to be the day for the Zoo and arrived a little early to grab a parking spot and check out Balboa Park. Spent a good day at the Zoo so went back to the hotel for some rest and relaxation by the pool. Checked out the World Famous Restaurant in Pacific Beach for dinner and this place was hopping for a Tuesday night. Paid $5 to valet park – worth it when you cannot locate a place to park and are hungry. While we waited for our table we watched the sun set in San Diego – gorgeous and a perfect ending to our stay in San Diego.

Great to go back and check out other areas of San Diego that we missed on this trip, like more of Balboa Park, Little Italy or the Gaslamp area.
