San Diego is a cool place but it feels like Brisbane tbh - big country town with not much to do. Best selling point is its close to a good zoo and the beaches. For some reason they have really good sushi though. Weird.
Pretty much this, from my experiences.
I was in La Jolla in October last year for a wedding, which is a town on the northern coast of San Diego. Super chill, really liked the vibe there. Good little bars, friendly people.
We hired a car (hire a Mustang, heaps of fun) for 4 days for coming back from Vegas back to San Diego. Drove out through Death Valley, really cool scenery, up to Santa Barbaba, another chilled out beach town. I enjoy driving, so I guess it depends. People say driving through LA is a nightmare, but I like doing that kind of shit. Get a good feel for the city that way.
