Transportation Issues, San Diego: 4 reviews and 2 photos

  "Please return for me in five hours!"

There are few things in any town or country that I would consider a tourist trap.

Especially in San Diego, where most of the renovations are geared towards "resident's" use, as much as tourist's use. I might concede that the parking lot at Horton Plaza may be a bit of a trap. The multi-level facility is not a straight forward set of levels, more like half levels. It makes for a better chance of parking close to the stores, but confuses the heck out of people parking their cars on one of these levels.

Everytime I'm in Horton Plaza I hear people saying, "Honey, do you know where we parked our car?"

The photos is The Lyceum Theatre entrance where you can have someone drop you off so you won't have to park your car anywhere.

Unique Suggestions: When you park in Horton Plaza, take note of the Fruit level you are on and remember the shop names on either side as you pass from the parking lot to the shopping area. This should really help you find your car later on.

Fun Alternatives: Another way of finding your car is to look very pathetic and ask one of the security guys to drive you around in their little cart until you find your car. They are quite nice about the request and will help you out in good humor.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
