It may not seem like it now, but Friday is just around the corner. To help you plan, here are our top things to do in San Diego this weekend.
Winter is peak season for catching the magnificent sight of gray whales breaching the water during its annual migration. Whale watchers might even be lucky enough to see something else amazing…like last week’s sighting of thousands of dolphins swimming together to form a super-pod![youtube http://youtu.be/uZFa-OdyU84]
