San Diego - where to stay, where to eat, what to do?

Jump to last reply

Thinking of week vacation to San Diego in mid September. Looking at Coronado Island because of beach, how is the Marriott as a resort? Or is the Del Coronado better choice? Understand there is a water taxi directly across to downtown SD, would we need to rent a car? Is there any decent public transportation? It's been about 10 years since last visited SD, have been to La Jolla, Laguna Beach, etc. so no need to rent car just for that.

Besides the famous zoo, Sea World and other kid type stuff we did as a family back 10 years ago, what else do you recommend? Heard Tijuana isn't worth it either. Looking for sunshine, good weather, a couple beach days, some shopping, cultural activities (are the museums good?). Love seafood, Mexican, Italian, other types of food. Any restaurant/beach shack/diner/ suggestions? Please share any tips you might have. Thanks in advance for your help!
