Ideas for two days in San Diego this spring

We'll be in San Diego for two full days with teenage boys -- love tide pools, thought we'd check those out on separate days in La Jolla and Point Loma - does that make sense? Love ethnic, culture, walking along the ocean shore and investigating beaches (for adventure, not for sunbathing.) Any suggestions to send our way?

Hi,

Where will you be staying and will you have a car??

You might also enjoy renting bikes and riding through Mission Bay Park and/or on the cement path along the oceanfront in Pacific Beach/Mission Beach.

You might enjoy walking/hiking in Torrey Pines State Park.

Depending on weather you could also rent kayaks or take a kayak tour from La Jolla Shores.

Not enough time for everything in only 2 days!! Balboa Park would also give you the flavor of the city with its small museums, gardens and trails through the canyons.

Also, depending on which days of the week, the International Cottages have lawn programs every Sunday at 2pm. Each country hosts different days...with music, dance and food. http://www.sdhpr.org/lp.html

For tidepooling:

It sounds like you'd like to walk the beach and go to the piers in both Ocean Beach and Pacific Beach.
