I would spend the day in Balboa Park and finally visit all the museums.

If you were invisible, where would you go?

I’d hit the beach and get rid of my tan lines… can you tan when you’re invisible??

Catching a Padres game at PETCO Park, bike riding along the Pacific Beach/Mission Beach boardwalk or going to the Little Italy Mercado on Saturdays.

  1. I highly recommend kayaking through the caves in La Jolla. It really is a memorable experience…especially if you have a fun guide. Beautiful scenery and lots of marine life!
