    When there's a big convention, it can be tough getting a seat for lunch. Plan to eat at off-times like 11am or 2pm and you'll have a much easier time.

    This place is such a beautiful venue for a conference. The view of the ocean is incredible and the yachts make it even better.

    Went for the International Car Show. Great way to kill a few hours and shop every local type of car in one stop, and see some fancy old ones.

    San Diego Convention Center has been my mecca for almost 2 decades. But with the large influx of people... perhaps ARTERY style quick pace LANES ought to be created for traffic to flow better. Read more

    This place is huge! Grab a coffee and a protein-packed snack to help you navigate. Then refuel with fish tacos at Tin Fish, just across the street.

    It is a nice place but the food is terrible. Everything was overpriced and most of it was deep fried and/or loaded with cheese. NOT healthy.
