What's not to be missed in San Diego?

I'll be in San Diego with my husband Christmas week. We have 4 full days to tour. Besides The Wild Animal Park, what touristy or nontouristy sites are on your "Not To Be Missed List"?

Here's my list:
* San Diego Zoo
* Balboa Park- if classical music fan, check Spreckels organ concerts/ used to be Sunday at 2pm.
* Gaslamp Quarter
* Drive over Coronado Bridge to Hotel del Coronado. I've been there many times but not during the Christmas season. I heard the decorations/ lights are great.

I would do the SD Zoo first if you haven't done it vs. the Wild Animal Park..
La Jolla and the coastline along with Torrey Pines State Park to hike..go to Georges at the Cove for lunch/dinner..sit on the terrace.
Balboa Park (next to the SD Zoo)
Cabrillo National Monument
Coronado and go to Hotel Del..gorgeous Christmas decorations
Gaslamp Quarter in Downtown SD
Drive up the coast from LJ to Carlsbad..
Eat a Fish Taco and visit a taco shop.

We loved strolling Balboa Park and visiting the museums and gardens.

We also thoguht the USS Midway was fascinating--we spent four hours there and felt a bit rushed.
