Perhaps you can write some blog entries on your experiences in the USA.

You're in San Diego, go to the beach. Comic Con will be starting this weekend, so stop by there if you'll be in San Diego this weekend. Tickets are sold out, but maybe you can get a pass from someone who's going home and will not be using their badge. Also go and visit Sea World.

eerrrmmm...San Diego is not lame duder.  The best beaches in Cali are there.  Anyway, be sure to try some authentic tacos from some greasy, hole-in-the-wall joint(always the best). Or catch a MLB game; the Padres are playing well this season and they're in 1st place in the NL West. Surfing or bodyboarding?  Have fun in the sun! 
 
EDIT: Damn! Forgot about Comic Con.  Check out the conference.  Bungie's showing off some more Reach...see it in person :).

Heh, heh.  Comic-con will have American cosplayers.  That's certain to be an eye-opener.  Also, since you are in southern California, take a trip to see an amusement park.  Disney Land and Knott's Berry Farm (better for coasters) are located between San Diego and LA.  For something in San Diego, there is Sea World and the SD Zoo.

Downtown San Diego will be a mob scene due to Comic Con.  Trying to get in will be generally futile unless you can buy a pass off of someone going home which will be unlikely for Friday or Saturday (the two most important days), I bet you could get in Sunday no problem, but there isn't much going on that day either.
 
Oceanside isn't really that close to downtown SD though anyhow.  I totally recommend checking out a shady looking mexican joint and getting the best burrito of your life.  Hit the sand and the waves for sure.
 
There are tons of trails and hiking to be done along the beaches and cliffs in La Jolla if you are into that.  Some great views and picture taking there.

Enjoy breathing the sweet air of freedom. Make sure to drink some fresh water of justice before you leave.

You should go to the Midwest. Specifically Minnesota. 
 
That's where all the action is at!

Eat a burger at In and Out - if you like pickles order it animal style!
 
Johnny Manana's is a good Mexican food joint near the pier, good grilled fish or carne asada tacos (judging by your screen name, you may have already found this place :).
 
Not sure what age you are, but downtown Carlsbad has some good night life

Throw some eggs at BP officials :P

Pick up a American red neck hooker, treat her to a chicken dinner at KFC.  Then get a BJ behind Walmart for whatever change you have left after your spent 10.  Walk her back to the corner and then call a American Taxi cab to drive you back to your place.  
 
Ask the cabby, "Where Can I get some action?"  I promise you will profit.

Great, now go bowling with your cousin.

Are you spending all of your time in California?

Just don't go to the south, Most of the awesome places in America are to the north/ western area D: plus the south has a lot of fatties :P

Get out while you still can. 
Just go back and don't look back over your shoulder. 
 
Go mess with some Rednecks or drink a Red Bull or whatever it is those people do these days

The thing with America is that there's so much shit to do that there's really no standard procedure of tourist travels like "visit the Eiffel Tower" or something.

Posted by iKANNIBAL
@Meteora:  Lol thats actualy true, you rarely hear Americans say "You should go visit the white house" most will just say get drunk and go party somewhere, it depends if OP is really a social person or not, if he sucks socially then his time will most likely suck.

Make sure you try some of them freedom fries they have. Only place on the planet you can find them.

You can't get into Comic Con unless the badge has your name on it.  The badges are like an ID card.

@tariqari: I've been to Comic Con, security just waves you in. They don't check IDs, they just glance at the badges.

I didn't realize that place is a chain.  There's one in Philly.
 
I saw a show the other day with the dude that owns Mama Testa.  Supposedly his fish tacos are really good, though I can't say for sure since I haven't been to San Diego in like 15 years.

Go North. San Diego is boring as balls unless you want to go to the zoo or something.

This thread would be better if you were talking about how you took a  crap in america.  Which I did last night.  Not a good story though, yours would probably be better.

Posted by damnboyadvance

Gosh, it's been so long since I've been to San Diego. There really isn't a huge agenda, but I recommend that you visit the beach and go to see the San Diego Padres play some baseball. Heck, if you're going to be there for a few months, maybe try and see the San Diego Chargers play some American Football.

Posted by TACOBOY

wow,wasent expecting so many replys so thanks for that,well for the bowling thing the family stuff is more on the line of sisters getting a devorce so yeah. 
well i have plenty of beaches in okinawa so the beach is not too fun,went to the rubys at the peer and had the 50-50 shake and that was awsome,i guess ill have to look for tacos then,and im 20 so cant drink in america(can in japan) but thanks for all the advice, ill get to it.

I agree with this post.

of what? the shake?
Edited by zudthespud

Weigh yourself now, and again when you leave. 
 
Also, I don't know if they have it in Japan, but Mountain Dew is amazing. You owe it to yourself to try it.

Get out of California and come to Seattle! No, but you should try to get to a baseball game if you can.
