Thanks for the help so far! I will be traveling with my daughter and my 2 grand children. I have found a great rate from Wi. to San Diego staying at the Paradise Point resort and Spa. during Easter Sunday and the following 4 days. Any thoughts on this hotel? We will be renting a car so will be able to get around.

Great location, wonderful view of Mission Bay. I stayed there way back when it was Vacation Village and even had a 9 hole par-3 golf course on the property. Now, they have reduced it to an 18 hole putting course. The Barefoot Bar was everyone's place to go and the sail boats were there for rental to take out for a few hours each day. The small sail boats are easy to control and safety life vests are a must to protect you if an accident happened in the water. I am sure that Paradise Point has only increased the reason to stay there since I was last there. The sand beach in front of the bayside suites is great for children and there are many swimming pools, so a fresh water dip is possible without overcrowding. It is secluded from most of the tourists as it sits on the opposite side of Mission Beach and Pacific Beach on Mission Bay. I would go in a minute to Paradise Point. Relax and enjoy. :-)

Yes, I would agree with Larry's comments. Paradise Point Resort and Spa is a pretty nice place. It seems more like a complex than just a "hotel." The grounds are well maintained and tropical looking. I, of course have not stayed there but have been there for various reasons over the years and it has a good reputation.

It is located in the Mission Beach area, surrounded by Mission Bay Park, very close to SeaWorld and though near, not actually walkable to the rollercoaster amusement park at the "ocean" side of Mission Beach.

This area can become quite congested with taffic during the summer and warm holidays. Probably not so much during the Easter holiday, but you should know that this is a very popular area in general. Mission Blvd. is the coastal road and leads to La Jolla, unless you take the Freeway. Grand and Garnet are the two main roads in this community and besides businesses, including the Vons grocery store, there is a considerable residential section. Just saying that not only is Mission Beach a tourist spot, it is quite popular with the "locals as well."

Linda, O'Queen of San Diego is right about local enjoying the area. When I lived in San Diego, I use to have lunch many times across the Bay in a little park opposite Vacation Village/Paradise Point Resort, just to look out and over to the sailboats and the look of the shore across the way. See my tip on Mission Bay and the view from that picnic table across the Bay at VT webpage:

Travel Tips for San Diego

Local San Diego Color

by jumpingwithnorman

SHOPPING: For great prices, go to the outlet mall that's located at the last exit before you get to the Mexican border. Since you're staying near the airport, just get onto the 5 Freeway going South and watch for the signs. You can actually see Tijuana from the back of the outlets! Prices are 40-60%+ off dept store prices but they are from last season.
There's also Horton Plaza which is over by the Gaslamp District. Just park rt in their parking structure. Validation is free for a couple of hours with purchase at most of the stores or if you go to one of the restaurants or watch a movie.

DRIVING: The freeways do tend to get a bit congested but they're roomy and easy to navigate. Suggest you print out driving instructions on for places you want to go to before heading out. Around the beach areas, streets are kind of narrow and parking could be a bit difficult. When at a corner to make a rt turn, stop first before proceeding. If the traffic light is red, you can still make a rt turn if it is safe so long as you stop first. Make sure you stop at all stop signs for a full 3 seconds - no rolling stops. No cell phone usage while driving unless it's hands-free and make sure you're all using your seat belts.

EVENTS: The Del Mar Fair is a 3-week event that's fun to go to. It opens 6/11-7/5. Check out the website for details: You'd drive there by getting on the 5 Freeway and head North.

BEACHES: La Jolla Beach is more upscale. They have tidewater pools but they also have the annoying (to me, anyway) seals that hang out over by what should be the Childrens' Pool. Friendlier to humans is Pacific Beach which is south of La Jolla. Lots of bars, restaurants. There's a pretty good, authentic hole-in-the wall Mexican place for tacos: TACO SURF TACO SHOP (4657 Mission Blvd). Local hangout! Water is great at Pacific Beach for body surfing though probably colder than what you're used to. Between Pacific Beach and La Jolla is another local spot known as Windandsea Beach. Very picturesque with big boulders on the beach. Wilder surf-no beach services (i.e. restroom/snack bar). Lots of surfers. Ocean Beach which is North of DelMar has a nice avenue lined with lots of shops/restaurants but the area is kind of scuzzy. Drug sales abound esp at night but good to check the area out in the daytime.

GASLAMP DISTRICT: Area around Horton Plaza. Lots happening at night. Party scene on wkends and nights. Scarce parking but you can always park at Horton Plaza which is about 1-2 blocks away. Clubs/restaurants. Movie theatre and shops. Bodysurfing and playing in the water in Pacific Beach. Finding deals at the Fiesta Americana Outlet.

Actually my San Diego Trip...

by KikBkK8

Actually my San Diego Trip consisted of mainly an entire
day spent at Sea World...& that meant breakfast, lunch, &
dinner! But the best part was when my boyfriend Rick, had
me choose an oyster at the pearl shop and it had a beautiful
black pearl inside which he had made into a pendant! It was
a special gift with a priceless memory behind it. What I think of and miss the most is gazing at the huge
ships at anchor in the harbor. Their size is awesome and
I feel like I have missed an important piece of the city
if I leave without seeing them.

This photo is of the boats near SeaWorld.

Agave shawii

by Yaqui

Agave shawii is a very unique yucca. That is how I recognize it. It is a very rare plant only found in San Diego County along Baja California. It consist of green ovate leaves that has little needles or teeth that surround the leaves. It blossoms with beautiful yellowish or reddish flowers. Some may think it is an ugly plant and think it may be a hardy plant, but is very sensitive, since it takes it sometime to grow, so it cannot recoup too fast from pollution or damage from contact.

Old Town

by vigi

After dinner, very full, we walked around the old town a bit to help digestion. There are many nice old houses and handicraft shops. Unfortunately, I found out that those old houses are actually not original, they are re-build, fake. Anyway, nice walking around though.

Old Town Cigar Store

by Pawtuxet

The cigar store, amongst the reproduction buildings of Old Town, is a fascinating place to browse. You can find pipes, cigars, cigarettes, cigarette lighters....and the like. In fact, my husband spotted an old ZIPPO lighter which was priced at $80 and $90...depending on the age and the insignias. Wow...just in his lifetime! There was a costumed clerk at the desk, however, he barely raised his head when I spoke to him. Quite unlilke the costumed guides and clerks at Williamsburg, Plimoth Plantation, or Sturbridge Village.
