My gf & I are travelling to SD on Thursday for a wedding and are taking a few extra days to enjoy the area. Our hotel is in Pacific Beach, I think (corner of Diamond & Ocean - I guess that's Pacific Beach?). We're renting a car, so can drive if need be, but closer is better than farther.
We have probably 4 dinners, 5 breakfasts and a handful of lunches that aren't taken up by wedding activities, and would very much appreicate any tips on what's worth the time. We'll probably visit the zoo on Monday so would appreciate any tips on food in/near balboa park.
Cuisine-wise we're up for pretty much anything. We both enjoy a hearty american breakfast, but anything is game for lunch or dinner. Budget-wise we can't spend tooo much, but one meal of $100 for two with a few drinks is fine, and under $50 for two, with drinks, for the rest would do nicely.
If there's anything walking distance from where we're staying that's better than its neighbors, we'd love to know about it, as I'm sure we'll want to have at least one drinking/non-driving evening.
Thanks in advance!
