Looking for hotels San Diego way?

My friends Jayson and Hazel recently spent a weekend in San Diego and - even better - they let me post photos from their trip!

They stayed right downtown in the Gaslamp District, at the Ramada Inn St. James Hotel, 830 6th Avenue.

Here they are up on the roof:

It's an easy walk from here to a San Diego beach, since the harbor's just on the other side of those tall buildings in the background.

Balboa Park

Balboa Park San Diego Old Globe Theater They went to Balboa Park, and here's Hazel in front of the Old Globe Theater. That's a replica of the amphitheater in London where many of Shakespeare's plays were originally performed!

Of course the weather's much nicer for watching outdoor plays in San Diego than in London. Just sayin'...

There's so much to see in Balboa Park! So many museums. Here's Hazel inside the Museum of Man:

And here's the tower from the same museum:

Where to eat in San Diego's Gaslamp District

They had dinner at The Marble Room, 535 Fifth Avenue, in the Gaslamp:
