Coming to BlogHer? See the Sights of San Diego

The blogosphere is converging in my neck of the woods later this week at the 2011 BlogHer Conference. I’ve never been before, but I’ll be attending on behalf of Mott’s [4]. It will be a whirlwind of a weekend with my mom coming down to ride herd on the kids while I head downtown each day for the conference.

I’m looking forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new friends. If you are there, please say, “Hey.” The last conference I went to produced some great friendships, so I’m hopeful for the same.

If you’re in San Diego — for BlogHer or otherwise — I encourage you to take in some of the sights of America’s Finest City. Even if you don’t have a rental car, you’ll be able to get about the downtown quite easily on foot and can roam the outskirts by taking the train. (The transit station is just a few blocks from the Convention Center, so you have the world at your fingertips.)

Here are some of the highlights of San Diego, children not included in the touring experience:

Cabrillo National Monument [5]

The USS Midway [6]

El Indio Restaurant [7] – the home of the taquito

The San Diego Zoo [8]

The SD Zoo Safari Park [9], formerly known as the Wild Animal Park

Legoland [10]
