San Diego for 6 days, not much time, what to do?I am travelling to San Diego for work (my first time there). I will generally only have the nights available to go out and 1 full day (Saturday). Any recommendations on the best places to see/visit at night?
I am staying at the Holiday Inn:
9888 Mira Mesa Blvd, San Diego, CA, 92131
Thanks in advance for the help

1Will you have a car?
Until September 2. the San Diego Zoo is open until 9 PM.
The plural of anecdote is not data.

2If staying in Mira Mesa-- a car will be mandatory. That area is suburban San Diego with not a lot going on in
the midst of the tract homes. You can hop on Interstate 15 and be in downtown San Diego in about 15-20 minutes
which means you can hit the nightlife of the Gaslamp district (5th Avenue) or see Old Town San Diego State Historic
Park just 3 miles north of downtown off I-5. The embarcadero(waterfront) is definietely something to check out with
great views of San Diego's skyline, the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier (now a museum with aircraft on deck as well)
and the Star of India metal-hulled ship from the 1800's. Then there's Balboa Park with its many museums and
the world-class San Diego Zoo. The beaches are great too. You got tons to do for your free Saturday!

5For a great view of San Diego at night, and good food, have dinner at C Level (not Island Prime, it's more expensive).
Go to the Blarney Stone at Balboa and Genessee.
Take a 2 hour harbor cruise, have lunch at Anthony's Fishette. You could spend all day walking the waterfront
For the best view of San Diego go to the Cabrillo monument on Point Loma, stop and see the tide pools on the way out.
For another great view of San Diego, drive up Mt. Soledad.
