Surfing to San Diego

Feldman, Paul, Risk Management

There are plenty of places on the Web devoted to travel to, and within, the San Diego area. A good place to start is Excite's travel page, states/california/san diego, which provides maps and information on local weather and transportation. There are links to other sites under more than 20 different headings, including "area attractions," "food and drink," "parks and gardens" and "arts and entertainment."
