We did our morning walk around the campus and this is a large campus with many architectural buildings. We stopped for our breakfast at one of the restaurants, Bella Vista Restaurant, and it has all the conveniences with parkings, washrooms, seatings, views.

We go here every time we have visitors. The campus is amazing. The Geisel library is a must, go inside to the top. The engineering building has a house hanging off the tall building, quite a feat of engineering.Children love the enormous stone teddy bear.

Confused some people think this is an attraction! University campuses are asways pleasant places to visit, vibrant and peaceful at the same time, there are also usually cheap places to eat. UCSD was no different however as with all universities parking was at a premium.

Nestled in the hills north of San Diego, this school displayed some ultra modern buildings and facilities. Ate in the student dining hall, which was great. They even have earthquake containers spread about the grounds.
