Welcome to San Diego, considered California’s birthplace, and one of the most kid-friendly cities in America
No wonder families have been coming here for 100 years. San Diego, of course, is a great bet for families all year round — sunny weather, 70 miles of coastline (take your pick of 30-plus beaches), theme parks (SeaWorld and LEGOLAND) and plenty of history
At the Hotel del Coronado’s famed Sunday Brunch there are over 100 items to choose from—freshly made ceviche and crab legs, calamari salad, fresh oysters and smoked salmon, trout, prime rib, ham and smoked turkey carved in front of us. That's just to start!
There’s no better time to visit San Diego than October when kids are free all over town — from the zoo to harbor cruises, LEGOLAND California in nearby Carlsbad, nearly 40 museums, restaurants and activities from surf lessons to speedboat rides to golf and even fishing.
San Diego famously is known for its sunny weather and beaches and the kids I interviewed for my just released Kid’s Guide to San Diego said that plus the world famous Zoo and Safari Park and other attractions make “the birthplace of California” an ideal getaway choice for families.
Zoos — besides being fun places to visit and see amazing creatures like pandas — are also ideal places to teach kids what they can do to help the environment
This month, kids can get into SeaWorld free in San Diego, Calif. Kids can also get into LEGOLAND, the San Diego Zoo, more than 30 San Diego museums and even ride free on Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner (typically one child with each adult paid admission). That’s no small thing
We all know that San Diego is home to the San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld but we may not realize there are so many museums that because they are in one urban park are so easy to visit (you can also buy a park passport that’s good for a week--$49 for adults and $27 for kids 12 and younger.
