From Disneyland to San Diego by Train

A Beautiful Side Trip

In July of 2006 I visited Disneyland while it was celebrating its 50th anniversary. One day I decided to take a side trip to San Diego, but I didn't have a car, because I wasn't familiar with the roads and I didn't want to pay such a tremendous price for gasoline. So, I took a taxi to Angel Stadium which was less than three miles from Disneyland, then I took the Pacific Surfliner to San Diego.

The two-hour trip south offered a very breathtaking view of the Southern California shores with its miles of beautiful beaches. When it was time for me to return back to Disneyland, I simply went back the way I went and saw everything a second time.

If you're planning to visit Disneyland in the near future and you read my story, I hope that you will try to do the same thing I did. Both of us would be very proud of each other for this accomplishment.
