    How about heading up to the San Gabriel Valley. Hit the Huntington Library, Art Gallery and Botanical Gardens. Go, have a nice lunch there, walk around the gardens and gallery. Then head over to Old Town Pasadena. Walk the shops, maybe stop in at the Norton Simon Museum. Then have dinner at one of the many restaurants in Old Town.
    I looked earlier at the prices for the QM and what the tours were. It is kinda pricey and the tours they offer wouldn't really appeal to our group. And looks like a lot of walking!
    I haven't been to the Huntington Library in yrs! That is a good idea too.

    I LOVE the San Diego Zoo, the polar bears were worth the price of admission for me.

    Regarding the Wild Animal Park, I thought it was all on a tram, or bus? There is a walking segment too?

    Sanks!

    Hey Max,

    It was tram only once upon a time. Now it's has a lot more options. Fortunately, the tram is a long trip around the park which is much welcomed after all the steep hills and such. Lotta walking though.

    Can I rent someone to give me a piggy back ride? Walking all over the place is over-rated? Maybe I can go in the croc pond and put a saddle on a croc? What could go wrong?

    Maybe a day trip to Catalina Island? Boats leave in the morning from Long Beach, Newport Beach, and Dana Point, and return in the late afternoon. Avalon isn't that big and if I recall -- it's been years since I have been -- they do have carts that can take you around town.

    There is lots of shopping and dining to do, and you can tour the Casino (a movie theater/concert hall -- not the gambling type) and take a glass bottom boat tour.
