During my stay in Riverside, LA, my friends suggested a short visit to San Diego. Since it was only two hours drive, we went there and enjoyed our trip.

I recently attended for a conference, and the Convention Center is a pretty typical Convention Center. That said, there is no seating set up between rooms, so if you're early for a session or have time to kill between sessions you're on your own.

I attended NAFSA 2014 conferences in San Diego. The venue is only 2 minutes away from Gaslamp Area where there are over 150 restaurants

Was recently here for a medical conference lasting 5 days. The view from the outside was awesome and pleasing to the eye. The rooms, auditorium and exhibit halls were well laid out. There was food and coffee outlets available at convenient points. Overall a really good convention center.

Nice venue, well supported, clean, and closer to good resturants than some large convention centers. The Gaslight Quarter across the trolly tracks from the center has some personality.

I've been at the Convention Center for a conference and found it very well organized, spacious, with a wonderful view. The conference rooms are great and the area for posters and exhibitors is very large. Very well located.

We were there this past weekend and the Convention Center is just gorgeous! Spacious. We attended Encore Cheer Competition and there were three other events going on yet we did not filled cramped or squeezed in. I was able to even get in a small workout while waiting for our daughters teams to perform. Every restaurant shopping and entertainment was... More
