Full day in San Diego -- please help

Jump to last reply

We are flying into San Diego on a Saturday at the end of October and have all day Sunday to enjoy the area before the conference starts Monday. We are staying at the Del Coronado (conference rate, thank you). So, my question is: which would be possible and more feasible to do:
1. Ferry over to Balboa Park as early as possible, bike around, eat lunch at a nice restaurant, tour one of the museums, see a play at the theater at 7:00pm, and ferry back after the performance?
OR
2.Rent bikes in Coronado then take the ferry to the Fish Market for lunch, tour the USS Midway/museum, see a museum in Balboa Park, then see the play?
FYI:
We visited San Diego once before for a short visit and really enjoyed Old Town and the San Diego Zoo. After reading all of the suggestions on this site and remembering how much we loved the San Diego Zoo, maybe I should include the Wild Animal Park instead.
Any thoughts?
