San Diego over Christmas

Jump to last reply

I'm gonna be in San Diego for 1 week over Christmas and was looking for some sage advice from fellow Fodorites. Here is the background:

Been to San Diego before as a tourist, but never in December (mostly enjoyed the beaches, Shelter Island, cruises, etc. -- summertime activities). This time, I'm going on business and will be staying at the downtown Embassy Suites. However, I'll have about 4 days free to do tourist stuff. I don't have kids, and I don't want to do SeaWorld (for personal reasons).

Should I get a car? Are most places closed on Christmas? Will I have trouble finding places to eat on Christmas? What are good activities during the winter months? I'm considering the aircraft carrier tour and maritime museum because they are close to my hotel - are those interesting? Any activities my husband might enjoy? I'm trying to entice him to join me, but he'll be alone for several days while I'm in conferences. I check the Chargers, and it seems they are away that weekend.

I appreciate any and all advice on acitivities, places to eat, weather predictions, holiday closures, etc. Thank you in advance.
