We spent two weeks in sunny Oceanside, Ca. We visited Universal Studios, the UC San Diego Aquarium, the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, the Hotel Del Coronado, the Gas Lamp District, the Oceanside pier and beaches, and many other out-of-the-way places that we really enjoyed. Our favorite restaurant was Gringos in San Diego. It is a gourmet Mexican food place that we randomly picked out of our guide book. It was a fun and romantic getaway and we didn't want to leave.
