Fun Things to Do in San Diego?

I tried posting on the Nest board, but it is pretty dead. DH and I will be visitng San Diego this weekend for a little R&R from Colorado. Looking for fun things to do, see or good places to eat. We are staying in the Gas Lamp Quarter.

Thanks!

    I am a transplant here in San Diego, and my first year was from a tourist perspective - so I LOVE telling people things I enjoy here (I also live in the Gaslamp Quarter) so I walk just about everywhere to enjoy:

    Good Eats:
    - Tin Fish (lunch or dinner in the Gaslamp Quarter)
    - Broken Yolk Cafe (great breakfast!)
    - Mary Janes (at the Hardrock hotel)
    - Rockin' Baja Cantina (Mexican)
    - D*ck's Last Resort (you gotta have a sense of humor)
    - Heavenly Cupcakes (for your sweet tooth!)
    - Smashburger
    - In and Out Burger
    - Basic Pizza

    Things to Do:
    - Hornblower Bay Cruise (1 hour or 2 hours)
    - Seaport Village/Embarcadero (great shops, touristy sites, restaurants)
    - The Midway (take a tour on a retired US Navy aircraft carrier)
    - The San Diego Zoo
    - Balboa Park (right next to the Zoo) - it's beautiful and has museums and so much to see in a day)
    - Sea World Theme Park
    - Point Loma LightHouse
    - Go to Coronado (by Ferry or drive the Silverstrand). Ride bikes or tour the beaches. Hotel Del Coronado is also there. Great history and very beautiful!
    -Mission Valley Mall or Horton Plaza Mall
    -Check out Old Town, Del Mar (if you want to drive that far) and any of the Beaches! (Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, Pacific Beach)
    -And if you are in to Bars:  Analog, Stingaree, Quality Social

    There is so much to do no matter your budget.  You should check out Visit San Diego (http://www.sandiego.org/article/Visitors/795)which gives you more detail!

    Hope you enjoy your stay!!!!
