Know about this?
This place used to be a place to view marine animals. It still is, but you have to look for them. There are lots of games which really belong in an amusement park, which SeaWorld has become. It is WAY over priced. If you want to see fish, go to an acquarium.
UPDATE: Anhauser-Busch, which owned Sea World, has been bought out by IBev, a Belgin company. No word on what will become of Sea World. However, there is no longer free beer tasting.
Unique Suggestions: Bring money. You have to pay to park (take the Number 9 bus to avoid this). You have to pay to get in. You have to pay to play games or take rides above the entry fee. If you are going to be in San Diego for awhile, get the FunPass for a one-day fee, then you can get in without paying for the remainder of the year.
Fun Alternatives: Birch Acquarium.

Sorry, but this place is a bit over-priced. For far less money, you can get an experience of BETTER quality at the San Diego Zoo.....
Unique Suggestions: Breakfast with Shamu, the 3-d movie and the seal show almost makes it worth it.
Fun Alternatives: the San Diego Zoo

The Gaslamp District is great to see once, but it's a tourist trap. Parking is scarce and expensive, and the drink and cover prices are crazy expensive.
Unique Suggestions: Occasionally great shows at 4th and B
L5, a dance club, Thievery Corporation was there, had a great time
Sushi Bar at On Broadway, never been but heard it's great
Fun Alternatives: Better alternatives for night life would be Downtown San Diego outside of the Gaslamp District, Pacific Beach, Del Mar / Solana Beach, Hillcrest, Little Italy, and North Park.
This place charges a ton of money for what it gives. Unless you are with a child under the age of 5, you will probably not enjoy it. Older kids will be thoroughly bored. There's a lot of hype about his place, but from what I've heard from everyone, it's a big disappointment.
Unique Suggestions: Do not bring children under 5 there. Most people I know feel the place isn't worth the very high price of admission, especially if you're not in that age group.
You might also want to visit the flower fields near Legoland and buy some fresh strawberries.
Fun Alternatives: Go to either the San Diego Zoo, or the Wild Animal park. Both are much cheaper and have more to do and see for all ages. Sea World is also very expensive, but has diverse activities for all ages.
I honestly don't think Horton...
I honestly don't think Horton Plaza is a waste of time, it is a beautiful mall and worth seeing but don't shop there. Get something to eat and shop for some souvenirs, but if you really need to do some serious shopping go else where, I found things 20-30 more dollars there than in any other mall and that's a shame. Forget even eating there, just snap some pictures here and there just to say you've seen it, then go out side the mall and experience the awesome restaurants on the surrounding streets of the mall. You have to try Sammy's Woodfire Pizza, absolutely awesome!
San Diego Museum of art- ...
San Diego Museum of art- Thankyou DirectoMr. Brezzo for taking all our money for a new mercedes and high sallary. Wheres the art?. .Go to the Timinkin Museum instead.
Cabrillo Point- .Another State Parks rip off $5 just to park and see a view, Good view for free elsewhere on the way. .
Don't feed the homeless coffee change. Please take them back to New York please. . There are some homeless selling a newspaper that cost 1$- these guys are ok. Currently the city emplys them to keep areas clean. .
The San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal park cost $18 dollars-. They are good animal parks. . .
Parking is a rip off (where isn't it?) $1 per hr. And the pay lots really rip you off. Look and walk one block from a free spot. Horten Plaza has free parking for 2 hours. There is also 2 hours of free parking at Seaport Village. Also Weekdays after 6 pm and all day Sunday you can park in a yellow curb loading zone for free.
Most downtown resturants on 5TH STREET charge too much.
The Torry Pines state park-. Once upon a time- ten years ago the Park Rangers decided it was best to let all the trees die of drought.. The 'let nature take its couse' philosophy stupidity that I am now accustomed too, worked to the advantage of tree eating beatles. In fact what happened is the adjacent deveopmentof the trees shifted the climatefor these trees. Instead of a few miliion gallons of water , we got dead trees that took a few years to die and hundreds to grow. .
The beatles thank the park rangers- I have other words for them. *&^%$#@)(*&%$#@
The San Diego Zoo: I used to...
The San Diego Zoo: I used to live in St. Louis, where they have an excellend, free zoo. Everyone says the San Diego Zoo is the best, and it is pretty awesome. But it's expensive, and almost too big.
All those asphault paths make it hot, too.
A friend who grew up in the area says the Wild Animal Park, just north of San Diego, is better.
San Diego Zoo. I've heard...
San Diego Zoo. I've heard that this is the best zoo in the world, but when I saw the admission prices I decided that no zoo can be worth it. I guess if you enjoy seeing animals locked in cages it's worth it, but I've got better things to waste my money on. This picture is the view of the zoo from the parking lot.
One of the liveliest and...
One of the liveliest and happening spots in all of downtown San Diego is The Gaslamp. Sadly, this section of down is also an tourist trap. If you must party here, try to check out the clubs before 9:00 pm if possible, in order to avoid paying the very high cover charges. Each club will hand stamp you which will allow you to return throughout the night. Drinks and food are very high here, so eat elsewhere if possible.
SEA WORLD I didn't go and I...
SEA WORLD I didn't go and I think that a wild animal jumping through hoops is horrible. If you want to see animals go to the wild animal park you'll get more for your money here and the animals are free to roam around as they want (however I still didn't go here it's not something I want to see).
