San Diego, California....

Whats not to love about it? It's true we are just visitors here but I was a residence of this beautiful area in the past. San Diego has a great public transportation system, which we used almost exclusively and with a little help from the PTS staff we were able to get around everywhere we wanted to go with no issues. If you decide to use a lot of public transportation buy a five day pass, or whichever will suit you the best, it's worth the money and the experience.
There are really four reasons most people visit San Diego other than a nice vacation spot. Those would be the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, the Wild Animal Park in Escondido, and the beaches. I have been to them all before but for my new wife she had never been so it was a new experience for her. Needless to say she fell in love with the area. Being lovers of the ocean we also made a trip to Scripts Mirimar over looking La Jolla Beach, beautiful view from there. On our day trip to Mirimar we took in the Sea Lions on the rocks at La Jolla Cove and took the opportunity to rent a kayak and go kayaking at the beach near  by. It was a beautiful 72 degrees and a curious seal came up to see us or keep an eye on us as we kayaked out beyond the kelp beds.
Of all our excursions I think I liked this one the best, although we didn't get to see or go everywhere we wanted to it's still at the top of my "Best Places to Visit" list. Visit in the summer if your a beach person, although it can be very nice still in January and February. Visit Hotel Del Coronado it's a beautiful and historic hotel on Coronado. If you get hungry and love real Mexican food....Las Quatros Milpas hopefuly I spelled it correctly, be ready to wait in line they are popular with the locals but seriously worth the wait. They are on the San Diego side kinda under the Coronado Bay Bridge.

There is just so much to do here, or if you want to do nothing there is no better place. I cannot wait to return here it just seems like home.
