Many places are spread out 15-20 minutes in various locations. A car would certainly be helpful.

San Diego was nice and very easy to get around in. The beaches are beautiful, and there is a lot to do - LEGOLAND, USS Midway, and SeaWorld.

We had a great vacation in San Diego. Since we are from the Midwest, we spent a considerable amount of our time on the coast. Making our way from Point Loma to La Jolla, to Torrey Pines, to Carlsbad, to Oceanside. 75 and sunny every day. We did devote an entire day to Balboa Park. We checked out the Japanese Friendship Gardens, the Museum of Man, and the San Diego Art Institute. We probably should have set aside more time to explore more. The Nationally-Ranked San Diego Zoo is on the grounds as well. Also, if you're looking for some tasty seafood for a great price - check out MITCH'S SEAFOOD!
