    Three places in US to live.
    New England - Mass or NH
    Tennessee - Nashville or Memphis
    California - San Diego
    I live in one locale already and frequent the others often.
    Definitely visit La Jolla.

    I agree. Move there permanently. Once your term is up, of course.

    Coronado Island is a nice, quiet place to stay. Great, expansive beach, and the Hotel Del is neat sight, if highly overpriced (a 75-dollar breakfast buffet? I had to pass). The Midway is a must. The Zoo is an absolute requirement, but there are so many other neat museums, etc., to check out nearby. There are so many good Mexican and seafood places it's hard to pick even a handful. PETCO is worth checking out even if the team's out of town or season, as you can always access the public park in the outfield during the day.

    I can't say enough about San Diego. If the economy and topography there were more convenient, it wouldn't be what it is, which is not too big and never anything but awesome.

    We are heading to the OC and have a day or two set aside for a trip to San Diego. We are planning on hitting the USS Midway and the Padres-Giants game, can't wait to get back to one of my fave places.

    One thing I love to do in San Diego is rent a little boat to cruise around the harbor -- lots of seals and Navy ships. Last time, some military folks in helicopters were training for water rescues.

    I also like Coronado for beaching, the gaslight district is all sorts of shopping and drinking fun, there's a fish taco place near the ballpark that I enjoy, too.

    Love San Diego.

    Second several that have been mentioned: Torrey Pines hike, La Jolla afternoon (snorkeling there would be fun), Midway tour.

    The Hotel Del Coronado is a cool place to go and tour and watch the sunset on the deck with a drink. You don't need to fork over big money for dinner or $75 breakfasts.

    This thread is perfect.

    I'm going to San Diego in September. She's got a work conference there and staying at the Hyatt on the bay, maybe, but that sounds right.

    The plan is to hit a Giants-Padres game while we're there and maybe a day trip to Tijuana.

    Is it still true you don't need a passport if you cross the border on the ground?

    Serious question: Why go to Tijuana?
