4 days in San Diego between 19-22.9.2013


My husband and I are attending to visit San Diego on the above mentioned dates.

We are 30 years old. It's our first time in San Diego and we would like to combined some lay back, visit the "must" site seeing in San Diego (like sea world),, going to the beach, good restaurant and maybe even some shooping..

Our budget is 250-370$ per night.

I know it's a lot to ask and to achieve in 4 days, that's why I need your help :-)

We would appreciate receiving suggestion to where to stay: beaches or downtown area (please take under consideration that after visiting San Diego we are flighing to Hawaii Honolulu, so we will have beaches there too..)

As well as what/ where we must visit in San Diego , which hotels are recommended, romantic spoots, surfing options, resturantes and shooping options with good prices (don't have to be outlets )

And if it is prefarable to be with a car if so, why..

Thank you in advances

Any help will be gratefully appreciated

There is a condo complex in PB called Capri by the Sea if you want a rental instead of a hotel room...more space but less amenities

Will Capri rent for 3 or 4 nights?

Hi Maya,

Another option is to stay in Bird Rock, La Jolla if you prefer an area that is less busy, but still very close to the nightlife, walking distance to restaurants, and boutiques such as Capricorn Boutique. Sands of La Jolla is in Bird Rock and they have great rates.Bird Rock is Central to Pacific Beach & La Jolla Village. Mission Beach starts at Pacific Beach Drive/Catamaran. You can rent bikes and be able to relax a cruise around without having to worry about a car and parking. Bird Rock, La Jolla to South Mission Beach Jetty is about a 4 mile bike ride on the boardwalk and takes about 20 Minutes each way at a steady pace.

Another option is staying in the Windansea area in La Jolla. There is the Travel Lodge & Holiday Inn that are all walking distance to the beach and a short bike to The Village where all the shopping & restaurants are. Good places to go for the scene are Prospect Bar, George's at the Cove (Bar Level), Whisknladle, Nine Ten at the Grand Colonial. A lot of locals also go to the Public House.

As for Surfing, there are plenty of places to surf. It just depends on your level. Tourmaline in Pacific Beach for Longboarding. I suggest avoiding surfing at Windansea. You are more than welcome to e-mail me about other places.


Happy Travels!
