A shit load of some of the best brewpubs in California for one thing.

Not being familiar with San Diego, the only breweries I have been to are Stone Brewing (of Arrogant Bastard fame) and Lost Abbey, both in Escondido.

I stayed in a nice little resort called Paradise Point for a conference once, but didn't get out and about much because I had no transportation. They had beach fires going, restaurants, and even a huge climbing tower for the kids.

San Diego also has the little red train that shuttles people back and forth across the Mexican border into Tijuana. Fun during the day, not for the faint of heart after dark. You'll need your passport, though.

Plenty of beach. If you have a car/bike, plenty of desert.

I'd say unless you've got a lot of time/are really interested in going to Mexico, don't go. It often takes quite a while to get back into the US side, especially on the weekends.

"San Diego" is quite a big place. Where exactly are you going to be?

Breweries galore. Hang out in the Gaslamp. I lived there until recently. Drunk hot chicks galore.

While you are there, be sure to visit any restaurant with "berto" somewhere in it's name: Roberto's, Jilberto's, Philberto's, Alberto's, etc. etc. I lived in San Diego Co for a few years and the Supreme fries and 'berto's Carne Asada burrito's might be what I miss the most. We have been known to take random road trips just to get a burrito!

Speaking of that, hit up Barley Mash for the best Carne Asada fries. I'd kick someone in the shin for them.

My fault. It's the San Diego Iron Fries.
