My girlfriend and I are going to be in San Diego for 3 days next month. Looking for some ideas on what to do. Don't really want to do super touristy things like Sea World,etc. Looking more to enjoy the surroundings. We looked into Hike, Bike, Kayak in LaJolla for a kayak trip. Probably a real tourist trap, but thought it would get us some scenery. Would like to mainly be outdoors. We're staying near the airport. Also, what restaurants/bars do you recommend? I'm getting on the upper end of my partying years so we usually lean more toward a nice microbrewery or restaurant type bar. I know we're close to a lot where we're staying. Haven't really set much of a budget, so anything is wide open. We've been dating about 5 years and because of our hectic schedules this is our first real alone trip.
I know sad....
Also, I've heard that Sea World has fireworks every night. Are there any halfway quiet beaches to watch this, say on a Saturday night?
Appreciate all the comments in advance.
