San Diego: shit to do with the family

I guess me and the family are heading there next weekend to visit my BIL. Will have Fri-Sunday to do things. Any suggestions? Will have two boys with me 9 and 5. Thinking about doing the Uss midway museum.

Iím really not that excited to visit commieville but will try and make the best out of it.

I finally went to LEGO land in Carlsbad and enjoyed it. There is an aquarium attached that was decent.

USS Midway is awesome. It's like 90% self guided, but if you want to see all of it, it takes a while. Lots of walking.

Balboa Park is cool with all the museums. The zoo is there too.

Sea World.

San Diego is a cool city once you learn to block out the homeless people.

obviously you have to surf in the AM and snow ski in the afternoon.

Probably should shovel some sunshine while you're at it

if you want to get out on the water look into renting a "duffy boat"...... family friendly easy to drive electric boats. there are a few places you can dock the the boat and go have lunch then hop back on the boat to continue site seeing from the water.

Find Gary's place and crap on his doorstep? Have some Mexican food beforehand, fun for the whole family.

You could also wander old town. Maybe hit up Dana point for some deep sea fishing. Explore bathing suit styles at the various beaches, bring sunglasses.

Old Town SD is cool. Another vote for Legoland and zoo.

Yes, because the hundreds of people in the never ending line wrapped around half the building must all be totally wrong.
Granted I like Philís, but hit up Coaster Saloon in Mission Beach to the new Delís Hideout in Del Cerro. Chef Tim makes some bitchin Q.

To the Op, there is SO much stuff to do here. Beach towns are fun for killing an afternoon. Midway is cool, and if you are there the Fish Market right next door is amazing. A bit pricey, but super good. You will also be close to the Gaslamp. And Seaport Village, though these days that is kind of a shell of its former self.

Sea world blows. The Zoo is world famous and very much worth the visit, as well as Balboa park which it resides in. Tons of museums and great outdoor spaces to wander thru.

Little Italy speaks for itself. Tons of great Italian restaurants in that area.

SeaWorld is not bad. Walk the Gaslamp district. Seaport Village is not bad at all for kids or women. Not fun for guys. Coronado is always cool. Its a really cool city. Probably the best city I know actually.

Sounds like legoland, the midway, and the zoo are locked down. Thanks for all the good tips will try and to fit as much as possible in.
