Saw some great sites:
*Rose Bowl [Pasadena, CA]
*San Diego skyline from Coronado Island
*San Diego Temple
In true Marchant travel fashion -- we ate....and ate....and ate.
We hit 3 Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives locations while on the road:
*Oinkster: Eagle Rock, CA
Amazing food! One of the best pulled pork sandwiches I have EVER had. Great garlic mayonnaise dip for the twice-fried french fries. Burger was awesome too. Keller loved his food so much that he stated the next morning, 'Man, I rocked that burger last night!'
*Pizzeria Luigi: San Deigo, CA
Good pizza & funny characters runnin' the joint.
*El Indio: San Diego, CA
Great Mexican food. Chips that were thick & crispy!
Also hit up Phil's BBQ in San Diego. I had no clue you could get THAT much smoke flavor into meat. Truly incredible! We were lucky to meet up with my cousin Zach & lucky to only have to wait 25 minutes -- wait times can be up to 1 hour & 25 mintues. Worth it!
And Keller's favorite part of the trip:
Luggage cart rides.
