I am going to San Diego next Thursday for couple days. What would you recommend to visit/take photo of?

Balboa park has many photo op areas.
The gaslamp district at night is busy with youthful nightlife.
The view across the harbor from shelter island is a good bet too.

Maybe the Zoo or the Wild Animal park? I would definitely recommend to visit the Zoo. Not sure what are the rules about taking stock pictures there.

Oh yes, the Old Town is nice as well, some great margaritas and fried ice cream there too :D

I spent a couple of months there last year. San Diego is rich with things to do. It depends a little on what sort of photography you like to do. Balboa Park as others have mentioned is good. Gaslamp Quarter and Convention Center down to Seaport Village and beyond to the aircraft carrier and tall ships is all good. Old Town. Of the Zoo and Wild Animal Park I preferred the Wild Animal Park by a fair amount. Both seemed to have no problems with any kind of photography. Coronado Island has some nice features and beaches. Try out the glider park, great soaring images to be had. Take an extra $150 for a tandem ride. I did and well worth the money if you have any interest in flying or soaring sports.

Two days though, hmmph. Not very much time. Plan on no or little sleep.

Just remember that photos taken in the theme parks and zoos can not be sold, perhaps not even as RM.  Of course, if the animal shot is generic enough, without anything that indicates its location, nobody can tell.

But the animals nevertheless are great to photograph.  Keep an eye on the feeding schedules, it's great to capture that.
