San Diego is one of my favorite cities to visit. It has beautiful weather all year, beautiful beaches, and lots of fun places to go. While in San Diego, I enjoy going to Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, the Hotel Del Coronado, UC San Diego, and Black's Beach. San Diego is also just a stone-throw away from Tijuana, Mexico.
The San Diego Zoo is world famous. It has a wide variety of animals from all over the world. Near the zoo is also the San Diego Wild Animal Park, which is incredible. This is a huge park containing animals in large roaming areas. A tram takes tourist through all these areas. The park also has many animal shows.
Another big attraction in San Diego is Sea World, a large aquatic theme park. One can watch numerous shows there, including a spectacular killer whale show as well as dolphin and otter shows.
While in San Diego, I enjoy visiting La Jolla. UC San Diego, a well-renowned university, is located there. From the university, one can walk down a cliff to Black's Beach, a famous nude beach. One can also watch hang gliders from the beach. The cliffs provide an ideal wind current for hang gliding.
A friend of mine from college used to live in San Diego, and I used to visit him there about once a year. While there, we'd usually take a tram down to the Mexican border, from where we'd walk across the border into Tijuana. Although Tijuana is a dump, it's interesting to see. Once you arrive there, you find a huge street market with people selling everything from blankets to posters to alabaster artifacts.
