Not saying you're incorrect, but what kind of soul and character are you looking for. I don't check this sub forum often, so feel free to send me a pm I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Good idea. I spent one night there and liked the town for bike riding.

Do you ever use your bicycle as a tool to get out and view some of the places in the history of nationalism? I use mine to view places of settlement-era history in the Great Lakes region of the U.S. (www.spokesrider.com)

Welcome to Bike Forums, James!

Check out the Southern California regional forum, we can point you to the areas of San Diego with character.
