    +1.

    and if time doesn't permit then check it out during day time. you can see SD downtown as well as beautiful La Jolla Shores.

    After that go to http://www.yelp.com/biz/lornas-itali...chen-san-diego which is only 5 min drive from Mt. Soledad via the 52 (east bound)

    Also, if I were to walk into one of the Police Commands, do you know of they trade patches?
    You'll have access to the trolly downtown, but the route is limited.

    I would rent a car, public transportation on the west coast isn't like the east coast. And as far as getting a patch, I'm not sure about the individual commands, some guys carry extra's around and some don't. But I think the SDPD museum would definitely have some.

    If all you have is the weekend, do the zoo, not the safari park. Don't forget the sunscreen!

    I am more amazed by the guys who live in havasu and central california. I remember one guy who lived in kernville and commuted to the valley working morning watch. At 4.00+ a gallon you might as well pull a trailer into the station parking lot and set up shop.

    That's 70 miles ish one way. We have two guys that commute from Victorville and Apple Valley into the Long Beach area. 100 miles one way! Maniacs. If they have court on call in the am and don't work until nights they end up staying all day.

    Things have changed. Pretty much can't go there anymore. Risky as an American, suicide if they find out you are a cop.

    Never tried Tio Leo's. Santana's aka MXN is always a great choice. I guess I'm more particular when it comes to certain restaurants.

    Jaunberto's is a decent little taco shack across from MCAS Miramar, they have the best California Burritos. Rock Bottom Brewery in LaJolla is a good place to eat/drink. I spent alot of time in the mountains around SD. The little town of Julian is a great day trip to get out of the city; the Apple Country Restaraunt and Dudleys Bakery are out in the middle of nowhere, but the food is great.

    I lived in East County for 4 years ('04-08) and miss it alot, especially after shovelling snow all winter long. If I had gotten on the job out there, I would have stayed.

    Places to Eat: There are a few good spots. If you go down to Coronado, Village Pizzeria and Burger Lounge are pretty good. Few of the mexican places I like are Sahira's off of Miramar and Lolitas down in Claremont Mesa. Another decent burger place is Smashburger down in La Jolla.

    Asian food is so-so, nothing I've had really stands out, but they have a bunch off of Convoy street close to Claremont. The one decent sushi place I've been to is Sushi Ota which is near pacific beach.

    In downtown if you want to spend more money, Rei Do Gado is a brazilian bbq place that is pretty good.

    A pretty good indian place I like is called punjabi tandoor close off of miramar and close to the 15.

    A good breakfast place is Broken Yolk Cafe and the Mission.

    I've tried many many places and this would probably be my list of favorites in San Diego. Hope this helps.
    Don't forget Tio Leo's or Santana's good eats at both. Tio Leo is more a sit down restaurant and has entertainment on wekends. Old town for a touristy thing to do. East of San Diego there are the san dunes takes about 3 to 4 hours to get there.
    Of course there are the Indian Casinos. Just head east on I-8 to get to the indian casions and the san dunes.
    Of course there's south of the border, Tiajuana Mexico. Don't take your badge or gun!
    Then there's Little Italy, very little it's about 3 blocks long on a one way street. Some real good mom and pop italian places there.
