  • This is a memorial to Bob Hope's USO shows during WWII, Korea, and Vietnam for US troops. It's not big, just a life-size ring of bronze statuary near the USS Midway and Fish Market restaurant with an audio loop playing Bob Hope jokes, such as, "This is Bob 'command performance' Hope reminding every Nazi in Russia that Crimea doesn't pay." It's a nice little photo op and tribute. Bonus round for 'Family Guy' fans: yep, the look of Glen Quagmire is based on Bob Hope. Giggity.
  • Well maintained. Well received by everyone who walked through.
  • They put his recording in a speaker phone telling the jokes Bob said to the crew that actually made me laugh.
  • It is a fantastic place to spend with the family!

Where to stay in San Diego

Offering accommodations at a wide range of price levels, San Diego is one of the easiest cities to stay in, regardless of whether you're simply passing through or hanging around for a long vacation. If you don't mind splurging, book your stay at a luxury downtown hotel or a lavish bayside resort. You can also rent a spacious private cottage within walking distance of the city's popular beaches. For a more affordable alternative, try a family-friendly hostel or quaint inn in a quiet residential area.
