Another San Diego landmark. Hopefully soon vehicle traffic will cease--not a hazard as much as an eyesore.

El Prado is a good dining choice in San Diego. I've had many lunches and dinners there. The food is not excellent, but it is very good. The service sometimes lags because of the tremendous amount of business that they do; however, it is always correct. I appreciate a restaurant that obviously understands what good service entails and that is not just a chatty waiter or waitress. I've never been disappointed and often surprisingly pleased. It's a class act.

Fun place to walk around and hang out with friends from out of town. Museums are abit pricey. Macy's has a deal in the spring that gets one in a reasonable cost and I think, there is a month where on certain weekdays, museums are free.

Take a rest and escape to the Casa del Prado. If it's Saturday, you will hear some fabulous music floating from the second floor. It's the musicians of San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory learning and rehearsing. With ages from five on up, there something for all ages to enjoy and the rehearsals are open to the public. But be polite as you slip into an empty seat. These students value their focused learning environment.
