Well to me, I'd say the USS Midway....., but that is me. it might not interest you.

SeaWorld would not be a must for me, but theme parks are for some people.

Coronado & La Jolla would be musts for me, for others the museums of Balboa Park might be,

Who is visiting (ages)? What types of sights interest you normally? I am guessing you are not flying in from PA for just two days, where are you going before or after SD so we don't recommend duplicate experiences.

Flying into LAX and staying in Anaheim for the week. Plan on going to the game on 8/2 so we are renting a car. But thought we would spend an additional day or 2 in San Diego. We love sight seeing, harbors, museums, monuments, shopping. We are in our mid 30's so we really are game for anything :-) . Plus I love taking pictures of scenic areas.

Then definitely go to our Downtown Bayfront. You can take a Harbor cruise either by Flagship or Hornblower. I prefer the more scenic 1 hr North cruise. The South cruise is mostly seeing shipyards with ships in drydock being repaired.

Balboa Park has several museums and has lovely grounds. Make for some great photos.

If it's a clear day you can see for miles at Cabrillo National Monument and many great photo ops.

On the drive to / from SD you will pass Carlsbad Premium Outlet mall. In SD there is the Fashion Valley Mall and Mission Valley mall (where there are some discount stores like Nordstrom's Rach, Saks Off Fifth).

If you want beautiful scenery go to La jolla for sure...Calif coastal scenery is spectacular you won't find it on the east coast...you should try to stop at some coastal towns like newport or Laguna beach along the way...or Malibu while you are near LA
