We're regular visitors to US cities and we are considering coming to San Diego for an 8 night trip during our Christmas vacation. We are in our late 30's and enjoy a vibrant city with bars and restaurants. In the last couple of years we've spent our Christmas/New Years in Vegas, New York and San Francisco. We're thinking of staying near the Gaslight quarter (it looks pretty packed with eats/drinks)..
Question is is there enough in San Diego touristy-wise to keep us occupied for 8 days? I can imagine us going to maybe the Zoo, Seaworld and a day trip to Mexico. Other days may be long lunches, etc. We would be staying over new year, are there any specific celebrations?
Many thanks for any tips you can give,
