    The tabs are a little too light for my liking, kind of faint. The tabs also take a while to load, with the 'requesting content' text. It seems that every time they are clicked they have to be loaded. Could you get this to load with the whole page?

    Clicking accommodations (which I believe is spelled incorrectly on your page) results in a page with " /> at the top. You can delete this and change the meta tag just before it to:

    Code:
    <meta name="Description" content="Complete San Diego vacation planning guide including details on events, attractions, clubs, restaurants, hotels and more!" />
    You were missing the slash. Do you use WYSIWYG in the design view?

    Regards

    and do i have to many links in the left and right nav?

    Like it.

    There should be a site title or something in the picture though -
    some sort of identification

    Love the google ads - sweden maps: very relevant..
    I would question the placement of the ads on site.

    I know this is what they advise and lots of people do this,
    but I would maybe visit 55 San Diego Attractions before getting to the main part of your page..

    Good luck.

    Cheers,
    Jamie

    side note-- i do have a page title
    "San Diego Attractions, San Diego Activities And things to check out"

    I know, it was loading for me as well :S.

    The tabs are fine, I can just hardly see them on my laptop. You could put an outline or whatever or change them to light blue if you wanted to make them clearer.

    I get a 404 w/ the link provided but when I go to the root dir I think you have some bugs and when first coming to the page I don't really know what this site is about the header is just a picture.
