    San Diego has scenic areas. The National Veterans Memorial brings back memories with great scenery around.

    The glideport between La Jolla and Del Mar is maybe my favorite place on earth. You have RC Gliders flying their planes on one end and Paragliders and Ultra-Light aircraft on the other end of this high field overlooking the ocean at Black Beach the only clothing optional beach in the San Diego area. Wow what a fun place. Do Not miss this !!

    We went to this ball park on our Old Towne trolley tour. It is a beautiful structure and it is easy to get to!

    Traveled across this bridge on our trolley tour and I was amazing! Such a beautiful structure! Coming back the other way we got to see the naval base.

    The buildings are so unique it looks futuristic. We were allowed in with a visitors pass to see the Defense. What a beautiful place to work.

    We enjoyed the Point Loma area for its less busy roads and the views. We loved being able to see across to Coronado Island

    Little Italy was great to go to. We ate at Mona Lisa's and enjoyed it immensely. The jets coming into SAN fly so close to the buildings!!! So much fun. Great wines and different places made it an enjoyable evening for all.

    Old fashioned tourist trap. Lots of fun things to do, surrounded by places selling margaritas! Fun stores to shop in and lots of sites to see.

    We stayed at the Grande Colonial, right in the heart of the village. We had no car on this trip. One in our party has walking issues, so everything we did was geared toward that. The hotel currently only has room service breakfast due to COVID so we ate breakfast at Richard Walkers right across the street. Very friendly, short wait, and good typical breakfast food. We had dinner at The Spot. Great salads and burgers, and good vibes. Gerard Street has an Indy book store, Warwick’s, a hardware store to putter around in, and lots of other shops. Lots of coffee shop choices too, with plenty of outdoor seating. Less than a mile up Gerard is a farmers market, only open on Sunday’s. Going toward the water, Seal Beach is 5 minutes away and follows along the coast to La Jolla Cove and more seals and sea lions.

    With some museums, you walk around a big building and read signs next to an artifact or two, but with this museum you walk through the historical ships. Ships range from steam powered to old sailing vessels and it gives an excellent sense of history.

    A bit of history. Can sec old original building with lots of local curious and gifts. Not that busy and a contrast to modern San Diego. Worth a visit

    Worth the visit just get there early or you’re going to be in a long line to even get in. They do charge so that’s the reason for the line
