I have seen others start these threads with good success so I figured I would ask for help. My wife and I are taking a trip out to San Diego from the 6-13 of April. So far all we have set on the agenda is a game at PETCO on the 8th, checking out the SDSU campus(for me) on the 7th, and heading to look at Long Beach State(for her) on the 10th. The weekend will be spent in El Centro and the desert, unfortunately, as that is where her mother lives. We are looking for ideas on good places to eat, drink and other must see places for the week we are in the San Diego area. Any help and ideas would be appreciated. Also what would be the best area of town to stay in that would be a good mix of cost effective and centrally located to most of the fun areas. We have heard Downtown isn't bad or Old Town(I think).
