Fun Things to Do in San Diego for Children of All Ages
If your travels land you in San Diego, you will not be disappointed. My kids span a wide age range, and we all had a blast during our recent vacation in San Diego. There was never a dull moment there and we all hated to leave. There are plenty of fun things to do in San Diego for children of all ages!
One of first places we enjoyed was Seaport Village. This spot has everything for everyone. I’m a self-proclaimed foodie, so when I saw the restaurants, the shopping and entertainment, all by the water, I fell in love. My daughter even got a chance to be a part of an act. She was a natural! If you are a souvenir person, this is a great spot, too — many shops to choose from!
San Diego Zoo
Who goes to San Diego and doesn’t make it to the world-renowned San Diego Zoo? I could not have lived with myself if I hadn’t visited. Thank goodness the weather was awesome, and all of the animals seems to be on their best behavior. The hippos were really hamming it up on our behalf, as they entertained us with games like “follow the hippo” and “jump the rocks.” My toddler was in awe, as were we all. We also enjoyed the pandas, which had the longest line. But for this family of animal lovers, it was well worth it!
Since we live on the East Coast, we couldn’t travel that far across the country without stopping at Disneyland. Luckily for us, Anaheim was just a short drive away. Needless to say, none of us could say that we didn’t have a blast with Mickey, the Princesses and the gang! That place really is magical!
We had the pleasure of staying at Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa located just minutes from the San Diego Airport. Conveniently located along the beach and close to all things shopping! The resort amenities were amazing and the staff is incredibly kid-friendly.
