It's my hometown. So like to giving you some tips for one day sightseeing 1) Balboa Park is beautiful can spend day alone - it's free to roam around and some museums are free depends on day you are going, San Diego Zoo is located there 2) Coronado- again can spend day alone their Google for more info 3) La Jolla cove is good to watch resting sea lions and good food



I love this city. So much to do here. I visit there often. Having said that I did nothing this time except sit at the end of one of the piers with my camera. I read my book, took pics/videos, and just enjoyed the scenery for two hours. Went back onboard to eat then did the same thing up in Skywalkers. I was a very boring traveler and that’s exactly what I wanted. I got two books done and took lots of pictures/videos to post online eventually.
