I love DK books and this one is no exeption! It was everything I expected from DK and more. I bought this book for a trip to San Diego that my husband and I recently took. This book was a lifesaver! The maps in the book were clear and easy to follow, the information on different sites was great; we carried this book with us in the camera bag and refered to it often. The maps were clear enough that we used them to successfully navigate through the city (I also had seperately purchased a very expensive laminated map of the city which proved to be useless and a waste of money). If you want the basics (top 10 everything) and a really good set of maps, this is definately the book for you! The book refers to the sunsets at Point Loma - don't miss this! They were absolutely breathtaking! By talking to the locals, we found several great restaurants that were not "touristy" and therefore not listed in the book. We were pleased with all recommendations, but Fish Tacos at South Beach Bar in Ocean Beach is a must! Inexpensive ($3 & $4), fresh and delicious!

I've had this book for almost two years now. I originally started out visiting San Diego frequently, and now have lived here in SD for 2 months.

At first I used this book for the map, to learn where things are, and also to compile a list of things I wanted to do. My boyfriend and I usually set out to do one of those things on each trip that I would come to San Diego. This book was so helpful with that - for example on our visit to the zoo reading the top 10 was helpful because it gave me a sense of what the park had to offer, and what was in my own top things to see.

Now that I live here, I still use this book! I brought it with me just last week to Balboa Park, and I also use before I have friends to visit - I'll flip through and think of them and what might interest them. I even still open it up to look at the restaurants, bars, ect. And just as the other people have mentioned, I use the map all the time (And love that they have a flap so you can mark a page with them).

I highly recommend this book! It is my only San Diego guidebook!

DK Eyewittness always produce great travel guides especially there 10 ten sites. Its easy to read, small enough to carry around and has little gems of advice in there.

I like purchasing guidebooks for anyplace that I am visiting - I love this brand book. It has great photos, easy to process information and always has a pull out map that makes sense for someone like me.

There's certainly a lot of "stuff" here. My problem is that it's all very superficial. The "Top 10 list" contrivance imposes an arbitrary structure that in some cases clearly requires some filler to fill out a particular list. It also means that any particular item's coverage is frustratingly thin. Instead of a whole chapter on, say, Seaworld or the San Diego Zoo and strategies for visiting these attractions, you get... two pages. And within those two pages, the authors attempt to cover 10 discrete things, meaning nothing at all is covered well or in any detail. Adding to the frustration is that much of those two pages will be taken up with tiny photos that are themselves too small to be of any real use. I've found this book to be entirely inadequate in planning a family vacation to San Diego, so ordered the Frommer's counterpart. Frommer's San Diego 2012 (Frommer's Complete Guides)

San Diego is one of the best places to visit and this is a great guide for day to day use. The maps are excellent and the restaurant recommendations are top notch. If you are looking for a great getaway San Diego is a wonderful place. This book explains the Zoo, Wild Animal Park, gaslight district and Sea World. It goes into some of the outside areas like La Jolla. Highly recommend.

The book is dated 2005. Some of the information is no longer relevant. Will will use it for basic information, but in description does not star it is so old. DK travel books are great when they are current.

I took this guide on with me while visiting family. The descriptions and directions were invaluable! I walked and toured around on my own. It is full of helpful and interesting information. Had a great time.
