Things to Do Outside of San Diego

I apologize for not including more posts in the last week or so. Seems like my busy life has gotten busier, and I have been traveling, too. But that is not a good excuse. Being without Internet access for days at a time, however, really puts a crimp in my writing - and blogging from my Blackberry is just not doable.
Anyhow...I spent some time in Santa Barbara for a business meeting last Thursday. So for those of you who have not visited, I highly recommend it. I wrote a post about my visit and included some photos, and it's only a 3.5 hour drive (without traffic). Absolutely worth a visit.

I also spent the weekend in Los Angeles, just 2 hours north of us. Such a change from San Diego, and so much to do there as well.

I spent a good part of a day at the Getty Museum, which I highly recommend. I also visited the Santa Monica pier, Bergamot Center where all the art galleries are, and the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica (more on all that later).

Yep, the traffic is worse now that summer is here and the tourists are around, but if you plan your time it's not bad. I love all there is to do here, but having the option to visit another great city is wonderful.

More later - Jeff
