You can go by train for a bit less money than Amtrak by using the commuter services: take the Coaster from San Diego to Oceanside, and then take a Metrolink Orange County Line train from Oceanside to Los Angeles. The regular adult fare for the Coaster from San Diego Santa Fe Depot to Oceanside is currently $5.50, and Metrolink from Oceanside to Los Angeles ...

San Diego is located in a desert region, which means that unless it has rained recently (it is expected to rain from time to time from November through March), there will be flowers only in irrigated parks. If you have the opportunity to go look for flowers in January through March (or later if it rained a lot), then parks like the Mission Trails Regional ...

It depends on what you do. The park has a variety of "safaris" that you can take, some of which are included in admission and some of which are extra. The caravan safari gets up close and personal, but the tram safari is pretty well separated from the wildlife. There are also walking paths, which are more like a traditional zoo; you'll be between 3 and 20 ...

If you want to go shopping for memorabilia, the Seaport Village and the Horton Plaza (prepare to not easily find your way out) are pretty good bets, as well as the Gaslamp Quarter, where you'll find plenty of dining opportunities (as a meat-eater, I cannot help you with vegan options). For museums, I very much recommend you take the bus to Balboa Park, ...

Since you're all on one ticket, you don't need to worry. I wouldn't plan anything right after your scheduled San Diego arrival, but I wouldn't worry too much Finnair use the American Airlines terminal in JFK, terminal 8, which should help a little bit. When you get off the plain, look for a member of AA staff (may also be dressed as OneWorld), who'll ...

There are a number of airport shuttle companies that handle transportation to and from the airport. They cost around $15 per person. Metro bus #992 The Flyer ($2.25) travels 10 minutes to the Santa Fe Depot in downtown San Diego, where you can connect to the Coaster commuter train, the Trolley, and Amtrak to get you anywhere else.

There's no rule against it. A quick search on hertz.com revealed plenty of options left for today. I would try to secure it online rather than at the desk.

I've been to San Diego a couple of times and both times stayed in vacation rentals instead of hotels. This worked great for our family because it meant we had our own garden and felt very settled while we were there. We stayed somewhat north of the city in Del Mar and Encinitas. Both these areas were great. I'm not a surfer, but there's always lots of people ...

Sure, should be no problem. Here's a list of all the car rental companies operating near the SD airport (from the San Diego Airport website). I had no problem finding a small car at Dollar for 3:30 today at ~$50/day.

Here is an aerial view from Google The green areas with a tram around them are the open areas where animals wonder outside of cages. Its about 1000 feet across and fairly long. Often the animals will go fairly close to the tram and the tram will stop at locations for photos to be taken where the animals have gotten fairly close. There may be some animals in ...
