California-San Diego

Tell me about San Diego

We're planning a trip in late March and were considering San Diego, because of the zoo and Sea World.  What else can you tell me about the area?  Any beaches?  I'm California clueless.  TIA.

    A few things to get you started (I'm by no means an expert yet on San Diego):
    • I recommended the Zoo's Safari Park (formlery called the San Diego Wild Animal Park). The San Diego Zoo is good too, but the Safari Park is better
    • Balboa Park, where the zoo is located, has a lot to do--museums, gardens, restaurants (the Prado is tasty), etc..
    • San Diego has many beaches. La Jolla Shores, La Jolla Cove, and Del Mar are all gorgeous. Get there early in weekends in summer for parking.
    • If you like beer, there's the Stone Brewery in Escondido (not too far from the Safari Park). Drink the beer, take a tour, avoid the food.
