#07/SDCC 2014: Take a Break and Get Outside and Visit San Diego!

If you’re reading this, you are undoubtedly coming to San Diego specifically for Comic-Con. But there’s a whole, big, beautiful city out there beyond the walls of the Convention Center, and we whole-heartedly recommend you see at least some of it. In addition to the Gaslamp Quarter, Seaport Village, Balboa Park, the world-famous San Diego Zoo, and attractions farther afield, such as Sea World, the Wild Animal Park, and LEGO Land, there’s beautiful Coronado, featuring the stately Hotel del Coronado, just a short water taxi ride across the bay. There are also a number of new areas within walking distance of the Convention Center, as we mentioned in our special “Since You’ve Been Gone” post here on Toucan. Comic-Con can often overwhelm attendees with all the visual stimulation in the Exhibit Hall and panel rooms; get outside for a break, get some fresh air, and explore one of the most beautiful cities in the country!

Remember your first, best, and most accurate source for information—including our daily Toucan Tip—is right here on the Comic-Con website and Toucan, the only OFFICIAL SDCC blog. Bookmark Toucan and the Comic-Con Front Page for the latest updates for the big show!
