America's Finest City
On the morning of the very first day in San Diego, and spend it at the San Diego Zoo, as it takes roughly a day to go or take in some of the wonderful museums, especially one or two in Old Town San Diego, and how can you forget about El Prado, it is definitely a place that you will remember long after departing from San Diego. There are the Museum of Photographic Arts, the San Diego Museum of Art, the Mingei International Museum of Folk Art, and The Timken Museum of art, all of which are excellent choices. For those who consider themselves to be truly into Architecture, then they will love stopping by the Marston House. The world renown San Diego Natural History Museum and the San Diego Museum of Man, the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, the San Diego Aerospace Museum, or even the San Diego Automotive Museum, if cars are appealing to you. After along day the beaches are a nice quite place to end the day. If a long night is what you prefer then checkout some of the clubs in the Gaslamp District.
Here you can explore a bit of Mexico's delights and its defects as well. You could start off your trip by doing some shopping, as the main streets and shopping areas are within walking distance of the border crossing.Next up, spend some time to lean a bit about Mexican culture by stopping in at the Tijuana Cultural Centre, an elaborate showcase which features in depth exhibits on the Mexican people, events, and culture, it is a definite must for the socially/culturally aware and regular tourist alike. The center's Museum of the California's offers a spectacular view of the extensive Baja Peninsula. The best way to finish such a busy day would be to stroll over to the Museum of the California's, and check out the brilliant night view, which are very beautiful.
Considering that the past two days have been rather busy, and quite extensive, full of activity, perhaps you should just try to take it easy on your last day, in San Diego. And of course what other way would best suitable than heading out to La Jolla cove, and observing the sea lions lying upon the rocks for a short while, go back inland a bit, make your way to Prospect Street, where you will immediately find the pink light gleaming, it reads La Valencia, it is a hotel, and out front, there are rows of shops, called Tony Shops. Here, is the ideal spot to enjoy both a nice meal along with an excellent view of the ocean. Take prospect going east bound, until you come to the Museum of Contemporary Art., then either hop back in your car, or catch a bus, and ride it back into the downtown area of San Diego, then hoof over to the Gaslamp Quarter, where you can take in some historic streets of San Diego, lastly but certainly not least, stop in by the Horton Plaza Shopping Centre, and get some shopping done! Later, enjoy a nice meal in one of the many trendy, up-scale restaurants in the Gaslamp, take you pick, and/or drop by one of the nightclubs and listen to some live music.
