"Because we have kids, we always have to find places that are amenable for kids. But if my husband and I are going out alone, we'd go to Pacifica del Mar. Great food and a really lively atmosphere. For something quieter, Delicias in Rancho Santa Fe is wonderful. California cuisine. The best lamb and steaks."

"They have the Old Globe Theatre there, an exterior replica of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in England. They do both Shakespearean and contemporary plays, all great. There's also the La Jolla Playhouse. Plays originate there and move to Broadway. My husband did a couple of shows there, and that's how we got to know La Jolla and that whole area."


"This is the great thing about San Diego. It's just limitless. It's anything from natural physical beauty to museums and historical sites. Obviously, Balboa Park alone, you could spend days there. I'm always stunned at the beauty of it. The park has the San Diego Zoo, which is one of the best in the country. It also has the Automotive Museum, and my boys love cars. It has beautifully restored cars and motorcycles, so it's fun for parents, too. Then they have the Natural History Museum, which has everything from dinosaurs to Eskimos. And the Museum of Man, which shows the whole history of man through the ages."

"There are a lot of beaches in San Diego and La Jolla, but we love La Jolla Cove. It's very rocky and quite gorgeous and great for wading or snorkeling. You'll see the sea lions on the rocks. You can feed them, and it's just fantastic. The kids go crazy."
