Aging Expectations

San Diego Trip Plan

San Diego is in our future!

In a few weeks, we arrive for a five day trip. That is a long trip for us 🙂 For the last few trips, I haven’t had to do a lot of planning. But, this trip required some research. Major research.

So, here’s what I have planned:

gulfossfamilythumbPlease note, I couldn’t have done any of this without the tons of expert help from Mary at The World Is A Book. She lives in San Diego and I think has experienced EVERY part of it with her kids! Check out just some of her suggestions here, and here, and here.

  1. Wow, Ronnie…you are organized. I’m impressed you’ve even got the food places picked out and with some great choices too 🙂 It looks like a fun-filled few days here. Your itinerary looks great so far. Maybe you can add Seaport Village while in the downtown area. if you like desserts, there is Extraordinary Desserts near Balboa Park. I wrote a Budget Travel guide for a fellow blogger, pls remind me to send you the link if I hadn’t done already. Thank you for the shout-out!

    1. Thanks for the additional suggestions! Yes, you sent me that link too – because you’re the best!!

      I always try to pick places to eat before-hand because we’ve been stuck before just driving around, hungry, which NEVER goes well 🙂
