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.

  • Just amazing! I was serieux o impressed by all the details! You need to see this attraction. It is free but it's a volontary donation system.  more »

  • Very cool place to see a beautifully constructed model railroad. Many very different section, all extremely well built and somewhat entertaining. The only think I didn't see is anything to purchase. I know hobby shops are dying and it's probably not all that profitable.
  • They did an excellent job. Really worth a look. It is free. Donations are welcome and should be given. This is a really nicely done setup.
  • Love the scaled town models and trains. Very realistic, creative, fun and interactive for all age groups. Really captures those with a love or curiousity about trains.
  • Very very cool! You have to go check it out plus I saw that there are some professional quilts being sold there that are hard to get your hands on anywhere else.
  • Great models of past events, such as Elvis at a theater for a showing of his picture, or a 5-alarm fire (well done) of the IRS building....All trains are done in "O" scale....GREAT for family and friends.
