You can also go north a few miles when you hit the coast and spend a great day at Oceanside pier or Oceanside boat harbor.  You can go south when you reach the coast if you would like to go to Legoland, Seaworld, or catch a sporting event such as a Padree or Charger game.  There are also many things to do in the downtown San Diego area.
