QHow much will it cost for a 10 day holiday in San Diego?

I am traveling from Darwin to San Diego . I have budgeted $ 2,000 for flights and accommodation . But now I'm not sure how much you need to eat , move , etc. I 'm not big on theme parks , very happy to go shopping and go light on the beach , so it is not necessary to consider the touristy things if not necessary.
Someone can give me a rough estimate ? I was thinking about an extra $ 1000, will it be enough ?

Budget of about $ 60 per day for food (if you like higher priced restaurants). So $ 40 for incidentals is fine. $ 1000 is in the same ballpark (if you do not do the theme parks). Discounts are available for Balboa Park (see below) I suggest you see what it has to offer. It is free to walk the grounds and trails. The facades of the buildings were used in the film Citizen Kane as support instead of Xanadu (Hearst Castle). The trolley pass costs $ 5 per day and are available in vending machines in the tram. Sometimes the credit card reader is flaky so it's a good idea to have cash for the machine. The tram takes you to most of the city (Balboa Park, Zoo, Seaport Village) and Mission Valley locations. There are two major commercial centers of the tram line in Mission Valley and downtown Horton Plaza shopping center only. Horton Plaza's architecture is very unusual and worth a look. To reach the beach you have to take a bus. Depending on where you are in the city, if you are near the tram line, the transfer in the center of Old Town Transit bus number 8 in Mission Beach and Pacific Beach. It takes you right past the Sea World and in the heart of Mission and Pacific Beach, one block from the ocean. Mission Beach and Pacific Beach are your best bet for fun in the sun. Belmont Park has a wooden coaster period (one of the two remaining mountains by the sea on the west coast) and other rides. There is a strand (boardwalk) that runs the entire length of 3 kilometers from both beaches. It's a great place to walk, run, sun, rent a bike or skates. Pacific Beach is also ideal for nightlife and has a variety of places to eat and drink. It is much more relaxed then downtown Gaslamp and has fewer tourists and more local. http://www.belmontpark.com/ Some must see attractions are the world famous Zoo, Sea World and Balboa Park. Balboa Park is the largest urban cultural park in the country. You can get a park passport allows entry to a dozen museums and the zoo. http://www.balboapark.org/info/passport .... Other attractions in the park include the Air and Space Museum, Ruben H. Fleet Science Center, the Natural History Museum, the Museum of Man, Museum of the Automobile, the Old Globe Theatre, the Hall of Champions, the Botanical Garden and the largest pipe organ outside world ( free concerts on Sundays). La Jolla offers great views, great surfing, great food, great theater, and shopping. Check out the surfers at historic Windansea Beach. During low tide you can go in the tide pools. Walk along the Cove and check out the caves. Visit the Museum of Contemporary Art. Take a stroll on Prospect St and check out the shops, galleries, and have some authentic Mexican food at Alfonso. Then head to the Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. It has a spectacular view of the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The Tony Award-winning La Jolla Playhouse is located near the campus of UCSD. For a few laughs in the night, The Comedy Store is on Pearl Street http://aquarium.ucsd.edu/ Take the tram from the center of the old town. There is a state park there that recreates life in Mexico and Latin periods from 1821 to early 1872. The Old Point Loma Lighthouse at the Cabrillo National Monument offers great views of the city skyline, San Diego Harbor and the Pacific Ocean. On a clear day you can see all the way to Mexico. Spring is a good time to go see whales migrating along the coast. The USS Midway is an aircraft carrier converted into a museum http://www.midway.org/ La Jolla offers some great places to eat. For Mexican food, is Alfonso. More down to earth is Sala José where locals hang out to drink and eat. The Spot offers Chicago style food with both deep dish and thin crust pizza. For the gourmet kitchen, George is in the cove. The Mandarin House in La Jolla offers homemade noodles and some of the best Chinese food in town. Located one block from the famous Windansea Beach. Check out the Internet and take a walk at sunset. After dinner. Close to downtown and one of my favorites is El Indio. Serving Mexican food since 1940, is a short walk from the tram stop St. Washington. It's where the missile was invented. http://www.el-indio.com/ Kansas City Barbeque is located at Seaport Village trolley stop. Best BBQ in town, cheap, and is where they filmed the bar scene in Top Gun. Lots of interesting memorabilia on the walls and also has outdoor dining. Old Town is one of the best Italian restaurants in the city. Pizza Bella home features Italian food made with recipes from Bella Mama. During the day your patio is open for dining al fresco. It is one block from the tram stop Old City. Check out these sites for discount coupons and other information
