For many people, a taste of San Diego entertainment would not be complete without seeing a local play – and that means venturing to The Old Globe or perhaps the Balboa Theatre. If San Diego entertainment means treating the tongue to great local food and music, on the other hand, you might want to visit Anthology. For parents with kids in tow in San Diego, The New Children’s Museum might be a good place to amuse the young ones (and the kids at heart.) Other museums in the area are the USS Midway Museum and the Maritime Museum of San Diego.
It is easy to get dizzy trying to visit all the San Diego music spots in a short span of time. If you’re into jazz, you might find Dizzy’s (located at the San Diego Wine and Culinary Center) to be just the thing. For those who wish to purchase music CDs and DVDs, the music store Sam Goody could hold the goodies to tickle your eardrums when you get home. People who are especially inspired to venture into guitar playing can try out musical instrument store elRayo as well, not just for the instruments but also to talk music shop with the knowledgeable staff.
A jaunt into the Tipsy Crow sounds like the perfect way to start out San Diego nightlife visits. The Tipsy Crow offers great music, tasty drinks and simple food at one location. Though garnering mixed reviews, the Whiskey Girl might be an interesting place to visit, if only to prove naysayers wrong. Then, go downtown to soak in the shows and rock music at the Casbah (a nightclub and music venue.) If that isn’t to your liking, you can choose to slip into the Onyx Room instead which is said to be the haunt of the young and upwardly mobile crowd.
The Gaslamp Quarter Association should head your list of San Diego dining spots to visit.
