Sand and sunshine make San Diego a year-round outdoor playground for the kids. Here are some of the best San Diego kids attractions and activities.
There are 70 miles of coastline with sandy shores and coves just waiting to be explored. Head to the beach for a day of sun in the surf. Combine the beach with other fun when you visit the Belmont Park amusement park here in Mission Bay.
Be sure to take time searching for nature's wonders in and along the water. The seals in La Jolla are unmissable, but you'll find smaller, quieter creatures in the Point Loma tide pools. The Birch Aquarium is another great place to meet fish. At Sea World San Diego, animal attractions and thrill rides mean all kinds of fun.
To find nature's wonders on land, head to the San Diego Zoo or the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Book a special experience or safari to get an insider's up-close look at the animals. Also on land, kids can ride on a carousel or miniature railroad in Balboa Park or take control behind the wheel at Legoland.
Hitting the attractions is great family fun, but you don't have to go far to find kids attractions when you stay at The Dana on Mission Bay. Just hang with the kids at our pools, stroll or bike along the waterfront, or take advantage of on-site water sports rentals to experience the thrill of a jet ski or the ease of a pedal boat. Our kid-friendly San Diego hotel makes it easy to make family vacation memories.
