San Diego

I am going to San Diego tomorrow!! I don't even know where I'm staying, I just know I have to be on the bus at 11 AM. I'm in the basketball pep band and we have to leave at the same time as the team so the Athletics Department doesn't have to charter two long flights. Anyways, our game is not until Thursday, so what can I do in San Diego before that? I mean, I know the San Diego Zoo, and I'd like to at least see the Pacific Ocean. Is there anything else that's a "must-do" while I'm there? I'm really excited; this is my first trip to California and my first cross-country flight.
And if you follow the NCAA tournament, please pull for Alabama Thursday night (unless you're a Marquette fan, in which case we'll have to agree to disagree)! Thanks!

I think you'll love S. California! The weather is wonderful. Have a great trip! What instrument do you play? You could take a train up to Disneyland, if that's allowed. Perhaps a group and a chaperone could go.

SeaWorld

If you have never seen the Pacific you should really check out SeaWorld.

I haven't been there for about ten years. I really enjoyed feeding the dolphins and checking out the sharks.

Go Bama!

It'll take you two days to go through the zoo alone. Also, if you get around to Long Beach you can stop by http://www.westcoastchoppers.com/ and see Jessie James.

The zoo and SeaWorld are good things - I prefer Seaworld a lot more. But there are more places I would highly recommend over those. And you prob aren't going to have the time or transportation to get up to D-Land or Long Beach - 2-3 hours with no traffic, which never happens btw! lol

Anyways, here are my suggestions of places you just can't miss:

La Jolla - beautiful beach!!! tide pools, etc.... you can go snorkeling in the tide pools at La Jolla Cove. It is awesome!!!
Shops that you can walk around and great restaurants.

Scripps Insitute of Oceanography is there on the bluffs as well and you can take a tour..

Hotel del Coronado (Hotel Del)- located on the beach. Awesome hotel you can walk around at. Great for pics.
http://www.hoteldel.com/

Seaport Village - located on the water - great shopping and restaurants. Fun place to hang.

Gaslamp Quarter - esp for nighttime partying after you BEAT MARQUETTE!

And don't forget Tijuana. San Diego is very very close to the mexican border. I live in San Diego so who knows. We might see each other and not even know it. You might also consider the San Diego Wild Animal Park where the animals have more freedom than the zoo. You'll feel like you're in Africa. Do take advantage of all San Diego has to offer and you'll have fun.

If you go shopping in Tia Juana, don't pay full price! It's traditional to dicker, so it's expected. I don't like dickering myself, but I have spoken to people who have shopped there. The first price is not the expected price!

Come to think of it, I AM Tia Juana! It means Aunt Jean. Of course Tia Juanita would be more accurate, but there is no city by that name....
