This place has one of the most extensive selections of motorcycles than any dealer in the area. It is family owned so the salespeople are generally pretty friendly. They also stock ATVs and small watercraft. The only problem is their prices can be outrageously high! Especially if youre a first time buyer, take the time to shop around before buying anything.
I really like the televisions that they have throughout some of the hallways. They televise other sporting events just in case the one youre watching at the stadium loses your interest. I also really like how there is a trolley stop right in front of the stadium. Definitely a great way to go to avoid the Qualcomm parking lot with its high parking fees and crowds.
This golf course has changed names so many times in the past year Ive lost count. It seems to now be called The Grand Golf Club. Actually, thats no exaggeration either. You get a country club atmosphere with great service and a well-manicured, challenging golf course. Range balls, towels, water, golf cartthe works are included. Unfortunately the green fees are also grand. But what do you expect, this is high-end golf. If you can afford it enjoy it!
PROS: Top notch facilities, great service, great golf course.
Highly suggest making a tee time at this popular executive 18 hole course. The course itself is challenging and not necessarily good for beginners due to hazards and tight fairways. It gets very crowded on weekends. It is also located in a valley which always seems to be 5-10 degrees warmer than surrounding areas. I would love this place except for the crowds and the tight layout.
For a public course, Coronado is tough to beat. Golfers are treated to views of the San Diego Bay and the beautiful Coronado Bay Bridge. The course itself is kept in decent condition. The entire course is flat which can make it a bit mundane and unchallenging. Its definitely a place you should try at least once, the views alone are worth it whether you come back or not is up to you.
PROS: Great views, good condition.
CONS: The whole course is flat as a pancake.
Beginners might get some use out of this 18 hole pitch and putt golf course, but anyone else will probably feel that they are wasting their time. The course isnt all that well maintained and theres a good chance of getting stuck behind a really slow group on the weekends. The teeny weeny unkept greens also arent very good practice for your short game or putting. On the plus side you dont need to make tee times.
PROS: Good for beginners.
CONS: Bad for everyone else.
As zoos go this one is probably the best in the country. The great thing is that they are constantly adding new exhibits to the place. Each year something new pops up, and hopefully the trend will continue (at least until they run out of land to develop). Many people think of the San Diego Zoo as one of those cant miss attractions. That certainly explains the weekend crowds during the summer. If you go I would highly recommend trying to go on a weekday. Also, do your feet a favor and buy a bus tour ticket its a great way to see the zoo without having to walk on foot, and you can keep riding the shuttle bus around the zoo the rest of the day.
PROS: So much to see.
CONS: Crowded on summer weekends.
This little repair shop located in a non-descript strip mall fixes just about any make of digital or film camera. I took my digital Canon here after the shutter broke and they repaired it no problem. They provide free estimates, and the price I got beat other repair shops in San Diego. They warranty their work and are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. You wouldnt believe the amount of business this little shop gets its because they are really good at what they do.
I prefer this place over the Zoo because the animals and the setting are much more natural and similar to what you might find in the wild. It also feels less crowded than the zoo because the park is so spacious. Go on a weekday and see what its like to have the whole place to yourself. Dont miss the obligatory train ride around the entire park, and check the website for new exhibits because they pop up all the time.
PROS: Spacious with natural settings.
CONS: Might be a bit far for some. They charge for parking.
What's all the hype about? This is a mass market chain of restaurants that sells ordinary food (pizza, salads, pasta, ribs). Most of the food probably comes frozen from a giant factory and requires little preparation. The food is also very salty for all of you watching your blood pressure. Granted, if I could put a Pat and Oscar's in my living room it would be great for watching Sunday football. But the food they serve is unremarkable and frankly not that good.
