They have pretty much anything you need to read stuff here. I personally prefer grabbing some coffee (that I will get for free with my $5 gift certificate for filling out this form) from the starbucks there and reading a magazine. The selection truly is amazing whenever I have to get an abstract book for school to read. I dislike reading, however I can actually manage to find many interesting books to read here.
whenever I need a gift for my mommy, I make sure to stop by Bath and Body Works. I mean who can go wrong with a cucumber melon scented scented massage oil or a aromatherapy pomagranite-ginger body wash? I know that women loves this stuff and pretty much no matter what you get, it is sure to please. Easy place to shop quickly for those ladies.
Road runner sports is just a ridiculiously huge warehouse where you can get any type of athletic shoe you could possibly dream of. The prices are fair, and the help is great. I strongly reccomend going here. They stock everything from track spikes to soccer shoes to football cleats to wrestling shoes.
Ever since the cool thing to do has been to be a punk, it seems like everybody tries to had to make it look like they are not trying. And hot topic is the palce where you can do this. From studded belts to strange gothic jewelry, you can find what you need at hot topic to be a freak.
Seaworld is a great place to go on a sunny weekend afternoon. My reccomendation would be to get a fun pass for about $45 which enables you to visit seaworld the rest of the year for free whenever you want. They have the great new ride Journey to Atlantis that gets you pretty darn wet as well as another soaking ride shipwreck rapids.
Boomers is a decent place to go if you are bored on a summer day. I would reccomend only going on 10 buck tuesday where you can get unlimited arcade, bumper boats, and mini golf for $10. I also reccomend upgrading to the go karts for $5 more.
If you want to ride a decent rollercoaster without driving 200 miles to LA, belmont park is the place to go. Although it is usually incredibly crowded in the summer, if you go on a weekday it makes a nice place to hangout on the boarwalk, beach, or in the grass. There are pretty good waves usually right there at mission beach.
I went to Jerabek Elementary School from kindergarten until fourth grade and loved it. They had a huge playground which was a lot of fun, but now most of it has turned into bungaloes. It is always rated top public school in San Diego County and I strongly reccomend it.
