SAN DIEGO  - SeaWorld? Check. Balboa Park? Check. The zoo? Check. Most folks heading here for a vacation visit the usual tourist spots. Those are great, but there's more to the self-styled America's Finest City than a famous theme park, museums, and lions and tigers and bears, oh my. Why not add the city's outdoor art to the checklist? San Diego has a treasure-trove of dynamic, free outdoor art installations that the casual visitor might easily overlook. These pieces, by big-name artists as well as lesser-known talents, are easily reachable and, in some cases, just steps from tourist spots.

Four-year-old plans for the $50-million expansion of Seaport Village have suffered another setback, caused by objections to a parking garage, the director of the San Diego Unified Port District said Wednesday. Opponents of the expansion project complained at Tuesday's meeting of the Board of Port Commissioners that the 1,300-car parking structure would block views of the harbor, said Port Director Don Nay.

Just in time for prime shopping season, San Diego's longtime police station has been reborn as an upscall mall known as the Headquarters at Seaport District. It opened Nov. 18 near the downtown waterfront. The complex, a mix of Spanish and Mission Revival styles, was built in 1939 with a jail, five courtrooms, an indoor shooting range, a law library and a big garage. The police moved out in the late 1980s, and the site stood idle for years while the tourists flocked to the tourist-friendly Seaport Village shopping area next door.

Seaport Village will begin charging parking fees Monday to discourage non-shoppers from using its parking lot. The shopping plaza, which has had free parking since it opened in 1980, increasingly has been used by motorists who do not shop at the center, officials said. "We deeply regret having to make this move after 10 years of free parking," said Robert Matuszewski, Seaport Village's general manager.

Seaport Village, a small waterfront shopping complex that has been plagued in recent years by financial woes, could have a new owner on tap by late August, according to a court-appointed bankruptcy trustee. The cluster of specialty shops and restaurants adjacent to the Long Beach Marina on the eastern edge of Alamitos Bay filed for protection from its creditors in a Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding in late May.

Port commissioners approved a revised $50-million conceptual plan Tuesday to more than double the size of Seaport Village. The San Diego Unified Port District accepted, almost to the letter, a resolution proposed by Seaport Village attorney Richard Burt, in which the developer agreed to delete a proposed Ferris wheel and plant more trees and landscaping around a five-story parking garage to hide it.

The San Diego Unified Port District granted unanimous approval Tuesday to conceptual plans for a major expansion of Seaport Village, but postponed a decision on some elements of the proposal, including a five-story parking garage, a Ferris wheel and a multi-screen movie theater. The port commissioners expressed their willingness to get the ball rolling on the long-awaited $50-million expansion, which will use the old police station on Market Street.

Despite objections that it "will mar the integrity of the landscape," the Board of Port Commissioners on Tuesday unanimously approved a revised proposal for a new Seaport Village parking garage. Richard Alexander Burt, the attorney for Seaport Village, said he hoped construction on the facility could begin by next spring. Don Wood, a spokesman for Citizens Coordinate-Century III, a local urban planning group that is the leading critic of the project, conceded that Tuesday's 6-0 vote was "a setback" and "a bitter disappointment" but not the final action.

RESIDENTS OF San Diego's East Village, just a pop fly from the Padres' Petco Park, don't have to go to the ballgame to be part of the action. Festive crowds fill the streets on game days, and some condos have balconies and decks with views of the field. Home mostly to young professionals, the area has a collegiate feel to go with its hip urban setting. Beginnings The history of the East Village is intertwined with that of San Diego, incorporated in 1850. Downtown became the heart of the city, with banks, shopping and theaters, while the adjacent East Village went industrial, with warehouses and a power facility.

More than 40 firefighters fought the blaze, which caused an estimated $400,000 damage, not including the movie memorabilia. The restaurant, across from Seaport Village and near the city's waterfront convention center, is a tourist attraction. -- -- Tony Perry

Crowds milled through the novelty shops at Seaport Village at a pace more befitting a snail race on a lazy Sunday than a world-class yacht race on a busy Saturday. Yet it didn't take this cross-section of people long to discover that America's Finest City can be America's Most Surprising City as well. In the midst of their fun and frolic, a yacht race had broken out. Shhh. Don't tell. It's a secret. Well, almost.

San Diego is gearing up for the first International America's Cup Class World Championship, which begins today and runs through May 11, acting as somewhat of a trial run to America's Cup '92.

Seaport Village, the ailing retail center at the Redondo Beach Pier, is being revitalized as beachfront office space. Stockton-based American Savings & Loan Assn., which foreclosed on its loan to Safren Development Co. in August and took over ownership and management of the facility, has renamed it Pier Plaza and hopes that attorneys, architects and accountants will fill the space largely ignored by jewelers, clothiers and other merchants.

Daletta Gary wrote a different kind of letter Monday to her boyfriend,Gary Cantrell, who left for the Persian Gulf on the aircraft carrier Ranger three months ago. Instead of an account of the day's events, Gary wrote about a unique festival at Seaport Village dedicated to wishing U.S. military personnel a happy New Year. The stationary she sealed and addressed as she sat on the sun-drenched grass was donated by a sponsor of the half-day celebration.
