Need a spring break? A San Diego vacation is the perfect way to recover from the winter blues. The flowers are blooming, there are attractions for everyone, and the weather's perfect for spending time on our beaches. Here are some of the best ways to enjoy San Diego during the spring.
• Meet animals of every size in every habitat. You can go on a whale watching cruise in search of the giants of the deep, or have guaranteed encounters with sea creatures at SeaWorld or Birch Aquarium. Giant land-based mammals live at the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The safari park also has a seasonal Butterfly Jungle, where you can appreciate the delicate beauty of these tiny creatures.
• Enjoy springtime sports. Baseball's back, and the San Diego Padres play their home games at Petco Park. Or head to the beach and learn San Diego's favorite sport, surfing. You can also swim, snorkel, or kayak, or just walk along the shore. Want to stick to land? Take a hike in Torrey Pines State Park.
• Explore distinctive neighborhoods. The weather's perfect for a walk on the streets exploring our distinctive neighborhoods. La Jolla is elegant with cliffs above the sea; Old Town preserves adobe and our Mexican heritage; the Gaslamp Quarter's decorated Victorian buildings delight the eye; and Little Italy retains the flavors of the Old Country.
