The pool deck rooftop bar at the Hotel Del overlooks the beach. It has high glass walls so you can see the gorgeous views of Mexico and Point Loma without the windy sea breeze. They have fire pits and tables and a cocktail and appetizer menu available. One of the best spots for beach views.

Excellent restaurant by famous chef Javier Placenscias in the heart of the Tijuana food district. You won't be disappointed by the unique food and it's a happy surprise if you're lucky enough to have Placenscia himself cook you your birthday dinner! Excellent selections of Baja wines. And as always, Mexico is half the price (with the same or higher quality) than anything in the USA.

Voted one of the best zoos in the world right here in San Diego next to Balboa Park. 100 acres of rare and endangered animals in a lush hilly setting. 660 species, 700,000 plants, 3700 animals. Ask for a map of the plants and take your own plant tour. So many exotic species that will take your breath away. In addition, it has an interesting "bug" zoo and an area dedicated to reptiles. Recently added Africa Rocks which mimics natural habitat showcases African penguins and other species. Take the tram for the best aerial view of San Diego. Be happy knowing your entrance fee and money spent is going directly to research at ICR and the fight to save endangered animals worldwide.
