Kobey's Swap Meet

3500 Sports Arena Blvd
Since 1976, this gigantic open-air market positioned at the west end of the Valley View Casino Center (formerly the San Diego Sports Arena) parking lot has been a bargain-hunter's dream come true. Some 1,000 vendors fill row after row with new and used clothing, jewelry, electronics, hardware, appliances, furniture, collectibles, crafts, antiques, auto accessories, toys, and books.

Balboa Park Municipal Golf Course

Tel:619/570-1234 (automated reservation system)
2600 Golf Course Dr
Everybody has a humble municipal course like this at home, with a bare-bones 1920s clubhouse where old guys hold down lunch-counter stools for hours after the game and players take a few more mulligans than they would elsewhere. Surrounded by the beauty of Balboa Park, this 18-hole course features fairways sprinkled with eucalyptus leaves and distractingly nice views of the  Read More>


Firehouse Museum

1572 Columbia St
Housed in San Diego's oldest firehouse, the museum features shiny fire engines, including hand-drawn and horse-drawn models, a 1903 steam pumper, and memorabilia such as antique alarms, fire hats, and foundry molds for fire hydrants. There's also a small gift shop. Allow about half an hour for your visit.  Read More>

Heritage Park

2450 Heritage Park Row
There are big changes afoot at this 7.8-acre park, dedicated to preservation of Victorian architecture. There are seven original 19th-century structures moved here from other parts of the city and given new leases on life, including San Diego's first synagogue, Temple Beth Israel, built in 1889. The park will soon see the development of new buildings, done in vintage style,  Read More>


Hornblower Cruises

1066 N. Harbor Dr
These 1- or 2-hour narrated tours lead passengers through San Diego harbor on tours that highlight dozens of San Diego landmarks. You'll see the Star of India, cruise under the San Diego-Coronado Bridge, and swing by a submarine base and an aircraft carrier or two.
