Day trip to San Diego with teenager daughter

We are flying to S. California this summer for a family event. My daughter and I would like to make a day trip to San Diego. What are you 'must do' suggestions to get a good flavor of the area? This will be our first time to San Deigo.
We like seeing new things, enjoy history and just taking in the new area.

A day trip from where (southern CA is a big place)? For instance - if you'll be in Santa Monica -- SD would be too far for a day trip because it would be about 3 hours each way.

For one day, you can check out La Jolla Cove, Old Town, and Balboa Park.

You could spend an entire day at Balboa Park with all the museums, the gardens and the zoo. I'd say Balboa Park and Coronado which are pretty close to each other and then La Jolla if you have time. You might consider taking the trolley tour
