    Fishing!

    by lmkluque Updated Oct 2, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some of my fondest memories as a child are days my dad took us fishing. I got to be pretty good at it, but have forgotten much of what I knew, except that it's a relaxing way to spend a day.

    There are two types of fishing in San Diego, salt water and fresh water.

    Salt water fishing can be done from a boat or off one of the various piers found along the coast of San Diego. H & M Landing is a company located near Shelter Island and offers fishing trips for local and long range fishing.

    Their fleet of ships for rent include luxury yachts, private charters as well as open party tickets, which is the most economical.
    Albacore, tuna, yellowtail, Reds, Rockfish, Sand Bass, Perch and Sheephead are just a few names of fish that can be caught.

    Fresh water fishing can be done from the shore, or from a row/motor boat at one of our many lakes. Usually, the yeild would be bass, trout or the bottom feeder, catfish.

    Equipment: If you haven't your own fishing pole or boat, they can be rented and be sure to find out if a license is required. At some of the lakes an extra fee is charged, so check it out before beginning to fish.

    This photo is of Lake Dixon, a small man-made lake in Escondido. The whole county of San Diego is spotted with lakes of all sizes and at some, fishing is not all that is offered.

    H & M Landing's address and phone number are given here as well as their website. If it is fresh water fishing that interests you, take a look at the City, County or State "Parks & Recreation" websites for more info.

    Mission Trails Regional Park

    by Jim_Eliason Written Jun 3, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the largest park in San Diego and offers countless miles of hiking through low scrub desert and low mountains. All this literally in SD's backyard (it's about 6 blocks from my home). The Cowles Mountain loop is one of the more challenging hikes in the park but the reward is a fantastic view over San Diego.

    Golf

    San Diego is one of the best golfing areas in the country with many public courses throughout the county. Probably the best known course is Torrey Pines, which is a PGA stop. Believe it or not, it's a public course, but you might have to arrange a tee time a month or two in advance.

    Balboa Park

    by acemj Updated Jan 28, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Balboa Park has some fields that are great for relaxing with a picnic basket or for something more intense like a game of football. Here we are posing for the camera. We picked up a game against some 12 year olds last time I was there and crushed them! ;-)

    There are usually soccer games going on and people playing volleyball or ultimate frisbee.

    The Gliderport

    by acemj Updated Jan 28, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're up for an adventure or are just a nutty thrillseeker like me, I'd suggest visiting the Torrey Pines Gliderport where you can take a leap from the cliffs in a paraglider or hang glider. It's $150 for a tandem (with instructor) jump on a paraglider (a parachute strapped to your back) or $175 for a hang glider.

    If you don't want to take that kind of leap of faith, you could just come here to watch others having all the fun. There is a snack stand and some viewing chairs and it's really a beautiful spot overlooking the ocean and would be worthwhile for the view alone.

  • Horse Racing at Del Mar

    by kcbrit Written May 14, 2005

    Spend a day at the races July- September . Nice track, next to the beach. Trains run to the town of Del Mar on regular basis - Surfliner I believe. Approx 20 mins north of San Diego by car. Well worth the trip.

    Padres Baseball @ PETCO Park

    by Phalaenopsis03 Written May 29, 2006

    Admittedly, I'm not much of a baseball fan, but since I frequent San Diego enough, I thought it might be fun to catch a game at the fledgling PETCO Park during Memorial weekend. Cool thing I caught the game that I did too (Padres vs. Cardinals) since I got to witness the three longest home runs in PETCO Park history (see last photo). Albeit, the stadium is only two years old.

    PETCO Park (5.28.06) Padres vs. Cardinals (5.28.06) Another home run! Witnessing PETCO history

    Cycle to the Point Loma Lighthouse

    by atufft Written Apr 13, 2015

    San Diego has a well developed bicycle lane and trail system. It's now without it's glitches, but the good weather and smooth pavement bring out the best in cyclists--both commuter and sports oriented. San Diego's mesa tops and canyons provide good climbs and descents. One exceptional trip beginning in downtown skirts along the harbor, airport, and Shelter Island areas toward Ocean Beach, Point Loma, and Cabrillo National Monument. Use Google Maps or follow scenic Hwy 209 to it's end. A great descent bottoms at some tide pools on the Pacific Ocean side. The climb back up to the lighthouse will burn your thighs but be a great accomplishment.

    Equipment: This isn't a great place to bring the single speed or three speed beach cruiser. Better stick with a fully geared road bicycle to climb these hills.

    Cycling to San Diego State University

    by atufft Written Apr 13, 2015

    From Downtown, take Park Avenue, up and through Balboa Park, perhaps over to 5th Avenue, and ultimately to University Avenue. Then, go east until you cross Hwy 163, then proceed north along any of a number of streets you may choose to Adams Avenue. Follow Adams Avenue through Normal Heights and Kensington Communities. At Fairmont, descent down and then up into the State College Community, and meander your way along El Cajon Blvd or other routes to College Avenue, and then go north toward the entrance to SDSU. If you still have plenty of energy, continue on Montezuma Avenue and El Cajon Blvd toward La Mesa. La Mesa has a pleasant small downtown. Return to downtown by way of University. Some parts of University Avenue are narrow and busy, but this route is basically OK.

    Equipment: This is not a beach cruiser trip. Take a multi-geared road bike.

    Cycling the Silver Strand and Harbor Bike Trail

    by atufft Written Apr 13, 2015

    Since the Coronado Bridge is off limits to pedestrians and cyclists, go to the bottom of Broadway to the Ferry port and pay $4.75 to ride the ferry to Coronado Island. This ferry ride is worth the trip even if you are only on foot. From the Coronado side port, the bicycle route along the coastline is fairly easy to follow, being a bit windy and crowded with baby carriages and joggers at first. But, south of the town of Coronado, the trail opens up for about 12 miles of scenic and fast pedaling. Don't go on a windy day. Try to go in the morning. At Imperial Beach, you might be tempted to return back the way you came, but the Harbor side bicycle trail is complete, as it courses through Chula Vista and National City in route to downtown San Diego.

    Equipment: This is not a beach cruiser trip. This is a 24 mile road bike trip that takes about 2 hours.
