Hi there! My husband and I will be in San Diego July 31 - Aug 5. We'll have the first 3 or 4 days free to explore before my husband's conference begins on the 5th. We are staying near Petco Stadium. First question - is that a good base area for our visit? We have another possible lodging location in Bankers Hill. Which area would best? We are not planning on renting a car, we'll have to hope we can figure out public transportation. This should be interesting...we're from an area where we never ever use it.
We really have no specific plans as of now other than we want to go to the Zoo, perhaps a couple of museums and some disc golf. So probably at least a full day in Balboa Park I'd imagine. I also want to visit the beach, not sure if we should visit Mission or Coronado.
Any suggestions on MUST see or do activities for our first time would be greatly appreciated!
