Almost anything goes, I'm stying 10 days, an overnight trip to LA is planned, but otherwise nothing so far. Maybe would like to go for a motorcycle trip in the desert...beaches?? rockabilly gigs, good bars, shopping also as I have my wife ond son with me...and our hotel is quite near the harbour.

@heavygenes gave a nice list of stuff . i might add that shopping for men is not so great although your wife  might like it . Cool stuff out here for kids depending on what they are into.
As far as breweries there are a ton of good ones , might want to look into the pub crawl tour things they have going on now.
Gaslamp (downtown) in general is good for sight seeing ,bars   and food .
Los angeles is great but plan your trip wisely so you don"t fight the traffic , staying central to the location where you plan sightseeing in la is crucial as its spread out and driving alot will take the fun out of it.
Would also recommend Tijuana if your kid is older than 12.

Thanks

yup, shopping is meant for wife, son. I don't expect to find so much....for myself.

Son is 16 so daytrip to Tijuana was also in plans.  Thanks for the tip for LA.

Jack, you might want to check out Gibson & Barnes in El Cajon...They have flight jackets in both leather
and nylon, motorcycle jackets and aviation related items. I'm sure you can find something for yourself
there!  :)

Hi BH. Have to look out them. Cal-Leathers would also be nice, but I think I might not have enough greenbacks :-D

Well Cal-Leathers is in Ventura, not at all close to San Diego...Gibson & Barnes in El Cajon is right next
to San Diego, would be worth a look if you get the time and their prices aren't insane. Hope you get
the chance to check them out.  ;)
