There are paces to eat and plenty of opportunities for a bit of people watching.

Sometime history is a worthy thing to do… but a little dull. Not so at Old Town San Diego . It’s near downtown and recreates ‘old’ San Diego and recreates the Mexican and early American period of the mid-1800s. The walk-through is free as are many of the exhibits and sites. Come down in the early evening and finish your stroll at one of the many restaurants.

Speaking of restaurants, San Diego is known for its seafood, and what better way to celebrate all the fresh, sea air than a visit to a pretty good seafood restaurant? The one to visit is The Oceanaire in J Street, close to the waterfront. You have to try the oysters, they’re freshly shucked and the tip is to have them raw, no sauce, no cooked toppings.

The San Diego Zoo is a world-class facility. Informative as well as spectacular, it’s a must see on your San Diego trip. The facility caters for tourists and for the animals – with ground-breaking research and breeding and care programs undertaken by the staff. This is a big, rambling place so pack your comfortable shoes and take plenty of snacks and water. The tigers, elephants and polar bear exhibits are worth catching and don’t forget to learn a little about the rare animal breeding programs.

If you have limited time in San Diego, your must see is the USS Midway museum. Set on a real-life aircraft carrier, this naval history museum is something else. The size alone is impressive but the interactive displays , the artefacts and the informative tours are excellent. There are real jet fighters, real ‘as it was’ tours below decks and informative guides – many of whom are ex-servicemen.
