It's no real secret that I never really know what I am doing, but sometimes I manage to pull it off. This isn't one of those times. The closest I've ever been to San Diego was on a two-day road trip along I-10 in a U-HAUL to help a friend move from West Texas to Los Angeles. That is another story entirely.
Luckily, VTMers came through in spades with things to do while taking in the Holiday Bowl.
Our wreckem619 offered several suggestions via email and comments, so I am taking the lazy way out and simply posting them below.
Also, please check out all of the comments on my previous post for more ideas from JonArnold, FTWRaider, TTpilk645, RMR14, RndRckTTU, kmmoreno, and others.
Thanks to everyone!
I have lived in San Diego for 8 years now, and my wife was born and raised here, so we have a little insight.
Things to see and do:
Pacific Beach and Mission Beach I believe are the two most tourist friendly of the beaches. Mission has a roller coaster and some other games on the boardwalk. If looking for a quick bite to eat my favorite stop is Luigi's. This place has giant slices of pizza and tons of beer on tap with a large selection of San Diego Beer (SD is well known in the microbrew field). PB (Pacific Beach) is great for dive bars off the beach. One of my favorites is PB Ale House. If the weather is nice you can sit on the rooftop drinking a pint and watch the waves crashing on shore. Both places have bikes and other things you can rent to cruise along the boardwalk. There is also paddle boarding and jet ski rentals for the bay if into that sort of thing.
Coronado Beach is ranked #1 in the U.S. This is a nice beach, and it usually isn't too crowded. This time of year I don’t think you will have that problem. Hotel Del Coronado is also located on this beach and is worth walking around or at least just seeing. Also there is a ferry that will take you from downtown to Coronado.
