I went to school here and it's a nice campus although I can't imagine why a tourist would come here unless you're an architecture buff in which case there are a few interesting buildings.

Taking a stroll around the University of California San Diego (UCCD!) Is a surprising relaxing trip. The lush greenery and modern architecture is eerie nestled in between the tall Euclalyptus trees.

The campus is slightly older but it is a great environment and interesting to get the feel of life in campus. Several places to pick from when it comes to eating, and really affordable.

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.
