  • Really nice exhibit of both cars and motorcycles. I saw their Japanese steel exhibit. Very nicely done.

  • Great displays, always changing! Can't wait to put our Eloise there!

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.
