    Hi Becky! I'm a native of San Diego so Come To San Diego! Dec. - Redwoods are wet and cold, SD may have some rain in Dec. but your chances of having sun are pretty good. We have the SD Zoo and Wild Animal Park, Sea World, Legoland, Disneyland is about 2 hours drive north, SD has MILES of beaches. Forest experience? We have forests in Julian (which is about a 1 hour drive from downtown SD) AND has the best apple pie anywhere. Where to stay? Mission Valley has the highest concentration of hotels and motels and is centrally located to just about everything. It's close to 3 major freeways. Lots of museums - Midway Aircraft Carrier with lots of cool planes and areas to explore & Balboa Park which is also where the SD Zoo is located. Avoid Mexico, you need a passport, and you have to know your way around. I wouldn't take small children there if you are a "first timer". All in all, if you are looking for something for everyone...San Diego is it! :)

    There are a lot of romantic dates you and your husband could go on. You could ride a gondola as you sip wine. (Contact The Gondola Company for more information). San Diego is known for its sunsets so why not check one out? A few restaurants that offer spectacular views are Bertrand at Mister A's, George's Outdoor Terrace Bistro, Forever Fondue, and Marine Room. Lastly, go on a dinner cruise!

    San Diego is pretty much a year-round destination, meaning the prices don't really fluctuate all that much. That said, summer is definitely the busiest season, so few bargains then. November to February is the quietest time, so you might score some good deals then, though the water might get a little chilly for swimming (ie, no dolphin swimming). Perhaps look to March or April before the worst of the crowds, so you can hit the beach with some slightly warmer air and water temps.

    You should check out Mission Beach, La Jolla Cove Beach, and Silver Strand State Beach. If you only have time for one, Mission is probably the best for families--there's a boardwalk nearby with shops and restaurants.
