Travel Announcement: Journey to the West Coast - San Diego!


In a few weeks, I'll journey cross country to San Diego for a work conference. The conference lasts five days, but I'll arrive two days early to explore the area. I've been to San Diego several times, but usually stay in the Old Town area with family, eating Mexican food and sipping margaritas. This time, I'll rent a car for two days and explore the region in more detail, with a lot of freedom of movement and time. Where should I go? I've already done all the typical tourist stuff during prior visits - the San Diego Zoo, sitting like a vegetable on the nice beaches, etc. I'm thinking about taking a day trip to Joshua Tree National Park, about three hours away. Has anyone been there? Not sure I can survive the brutal desert heat. :( And finally....Collapse )
