Kelly's Korners Show Us Your Life: Favorite Vacation Spots

Kelly's Korners Show Us Your Life topic is Favorite Vacation Spots! While we actually lived in San Diego for 12 years it was still like being on vacation due to the amazing sites, weather, events and things to do every weekend!

Now that we live in Las Vegas, we would love to head back to San Diego for a summer vacation someday soon. (to cool off from the hot temps)

Here's just a few of our favorite San Diego spots, photos courtesy of Pinterest!

Old Town, San Diego is a beautiful area. You can see and tour historical buildings, enjoy lunch at your choice of restaurants, shop and entertainment!

Old Town Mexican Cafe has the best homemade tortillas! We always took out-of-town guests there!

One of our family favorite places is Balboa Park. It's full of museums, gardens, restaurants, shopping, theaters and so much more! We used to spend every Sunday at the park, walking and unwinding before starting our week! There are so many weekend activities and things to see that it's possible to hang out there all day!

When Marcus was little he loved taking a tour of the San Diego Natural History Museum. The museum features traveling exhibits and a 3-D Dolby theater. It's a hit with kids of all ages.

You may want to consider purchasing a Park Pass if you want to get the best price for entry fees for the museums and gardens. check the website for details!

The Harbor House Restaurant, Seaport Village, was where we celebrated our 5th year anniversary dinner. I would love to have a romantic dinner there on our visit!

Seaport Village is a waterfront shopping and dining complex adjacent to San Diego Bay. It's car-free, lots of windy walking paths and gorgeous views!

This statue has since been removed. Thanks Along A Widowed Road for the update!

Hey Rona,
Thank you for showcasing my hometown San Diego. I should share that the statue of the military man in uniform and the nurse embracing was taken down. There has been talk of them replacing it with something smaller. I think it was just beautiful and they should of left it.

Have a great weekend.
