I'll be flying into San Diego on Wed. evening for a business trip and while I'll be in meeting for a good part of Thursday and Friday, I'll have both of those evenings as well as Saturday and Sunday to do some exploring. I was wondering if there are any hidden gems I should visit, places to eat, interesting locales, etc? I'll be renting a car so transportation isn't an issue and I'll be staying at the Hotel Del Coronado.

Thanks in advance!

I know of all the touristy destinations, I'm looking for some local areas that aren't dominated by visitors. I'd like to soak up a little San Diego flair; I'd like to try some of the hidden gems that locals enjoy that aren't in all of the travel brochures. Any recommendations on places to eat and things to see that are a hidden gem in the city?

Lunch or dinner (time it for sunset) at the Roberto's that overlooks the wildlife preserve at Los Penasquitos Lagoon. 2206 Carmel Valley Road, San Diego

Lunch or dinner at Bernard O's. As elegant as the best places, but tucked away in RB. 12457 Rancho Bernardo Road, San Diego, CA

Take a walk at Kit Carson park in Escondido and visit Queen Califia's Magic Circle. Queen Califia's Magical Circle Garden

Coast Walk
Sunset Cliffs
Farmer's Market in Little Italy
South Park (gotta give my own sweet 'hood some props) Alchemy, Hamilton's, The Station, Whistle Stop are all fun places, especially if you are walking from one place to the other.
Torrey Pines State Park
Mission Trails- might be a little hot and dried up this time of year though.
Cafe Chloe (East Village)

I recently visited San Diego. I went to La Jolla Cove and had a lovely time. The cove is a beautiful ecological reserve to sea lions, seals, Giribaldi fish and other marine life. A "must see" place, in my humble opinion. Enjoy your visit to SD!
