    This place is overrated. Expensive, crowded, terrible layout where I had to walk back and forth to see new things, it was like a maze. Many empty "cages" and sad looking animals.

    La Jolla Shores

    S La Jolla Ave, San Diego, California
    141 reviews

    Weathered from a 75 million year old sandstone cliff, La Jolla’s seven sister caves had once been used by pirates. Only, the cargo they smuggled was human. The Transcontinental Railroad race had lured tens of thousands Chinese who competed against the surly, hard-drinking, fast-fisted Irish swinging hammers for the Central Pacific Railroad.

    Downtown San Diego

    San Diego, CA 92101
    95 reviews

    There are so many regions/neighborhoods in Downtown San Diego, it's well worth seeing! If you are walker, it's a day-long adventure.
