San Diego Day Trip by Train?
Friday, May 8, 2009 10:03 AM
We have an idea that's been floated at the Organizer's meeting to generally resounding approval and that would be a group day trip down to San Diego and the surrounding environs, including the Zoo, Balboa Park, the Gaslamp District and other things I can't recall off the top of my head.
Since the traffic in and out of San Diego can get a little nuts, especially on weekends, the idea would be to meet somewhere like San Juan Capistrano and take Amtrak into the city. The train drops you downtown and it's pretty convenient to take a bus anywhere (I speak from experience). Currently the one-way fare from SJC to San Diego is $17.
I'd expect that we'd have several groups fanning out over the city and then meet back at the train station. If anyone is really, really interested (as in you wouldn't mind being the "tour guide" for part of the group), come back to the Meetup message boards and post your ideas.
Hopefully, we can get some really good ideas beyond the obvious ones I mentioned.
