BTW Jon...Southwest does fly to San Diego while ATA doesn't, ATA only flies into L.A. which is about 2 hours away drivin'. San Diego's airport is wild, it's right smack dab in the downtown area
When you do get to San Diego, check out Seaport Village, cute shops by the ocean (if you're into that) and also the Gas Lamp district where all the bars are at
If ya gotta chance to rent a bike out there (not sure where though) check out Mulholland drive by the Hollywood sign in L.A. When Shane and I were there we took our rent-a-car on it and it was pretty fun
Oh, also make sure you make it down to PB (Pacific Beach) and also take a drive onto Pacific Coast Highway...very fun! There's also Del Mar on the other side of the Coronado Bridge. There are signs on the bridge for seeking counseling if anyone was thinking of jumping off. Apparently according to my cousin they have about at least a few jumpers a year
(I know it's not funny but it kinda is).
Have a good time. I love San Diego! If I had more family there that's where we would really be!!!
Damned the parental units for stopping in Chicago and not going straight to California when we decided to immigrate here from the Philippines 18 years ago
