"Family activities and great for singles as well"

I love San Diego, SeaWorld is one of my favorite places to visit because of the great activities that encompass not only family activities but for singles and couples as well. Another cool place is Balboa Park, I love going to the museums and visiting the fountains. I think this city is awesome because its close to all attractions.

We had a Harbor Cruise (Flagship), which was very informational and enjoyable. All of our activities were fun and informative. The weather was perfect, and everyone that we dealt with to arrange our activities and follow them through were most helpful and friendly. We had two college tours (UC San Diego and CSU San Marcos), and those tours were extraordinary. All in all, a very successful trip for our high school students.

People were helpful with directions and the convention center was a blast. The news about the San Diego police cracking down on the homeless right before SDCC was less than a pleasant experience. Don't disrupt people's lives just to make tourists like me feel better when we are spending money on frivolous things. Let us decide how we feel about that.

The Corvette Diner in Point Loma is the place to go for a fun rowdy crowd at dinner. Singing, dancing waitresses and waiters, a DJ playing your favorite tunes on request and amazing food. Kaminski's on on Poway Road has some of te best BBQ I've ever had. They do a 16 cook on their Carolina pulled pork, Texas style brisket and more. I had lunch there but they have bands play at night and tons of huge TV's for the sports fan.
