Hi Paul - Welcome to San Diego!

When is this trip planned? If it's the summer I would not recommend going to the Safari Park. It is not in San Diego. It's about a 45 min drive away and it's in the desert. It can be 90 - over 100 degrees out there. The park has little shade. So can be very uncomfortable.

Where are you staying? With a car you can easily drive to the Zoo and parking is Free. Drive to Old Town. Parking is Free. The Gaslamp Quarter is a place with restaurants, bars & nightlife. You can drive there. Sunday's parking is free otherwise you pay parking meters or pay for a parking lot.

I agree with Ellizzie.

My favorite area is also the seaport village, the harbour (especially the US Midway, you can also visit it inside), I would also go to Balboa Park and possibly to one beach (La Jolla even though it's not very close, otherwise Pacific Beach and Mission Bay).

Have fun!
