Dream of California, and you're halfway to San Diego already: sandy beaches and seafood bistros in La Jolla, sailors sipping craft brews along 30th St., future stars making stage debuts in University Heights, pandas at the Zoo, snorkeling in Coronado, and summer romance year-round in the mood-lit Gaslamp Quarter.
Getting Around San Diego
The best way to get around San Diego is by car. A rental car will allow you to explore the whole San Diego region. Taxis are abundant throughout downtown and can be hired for $2.80 plus $3 per mile. San Diego's public transit system is economical to reach major attractions. Fares are generally $2.25 for a one-way ticket and $5 for a day pass. $2 will be added to your first purchase of a Compass Card, a reloadable card which can be used throughout the system. Downtown, the waterfront and certain neighborhoods like Pacific Beach, La Jolla and Hillcrest are well-suited for strolling.
