I know some of it is tourist stuff. But San Diego is an expensive place to visit if you have to fit hotel bills, rental cars etc... This is not the "off season" for hotels, so I was trying to think fun on a budget. Your right about the zoo, I almost pied my pants thinking the giraffs were going to storm pass the electronic barrier. And again while feeding them at the wild animal park. My boyfriend never let that one go:pissed:.
