This urban park, just minutes away from downtown San Diego, is also renowned for its brilliant displays of seasonal flowers, shady groves of trees, and meandering paths through rolling lawns.

  7. Old Town San Diego
    Although San Diego boasts many attractions, perhaps the most colorful is Old Town. Dating back to the time of the early Spaniards in California, Old Town reflects the rich and colorful history of early California. Daily shows, monthly festivals, haunted houses, dining, artisans, and a wealth of beautiful shops give Old Town its festive air. It's the one place you won't want to miss!

  8. Wild Animal Park
    Journey to the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park. Take an African safari adventure, where rare and exotic creatures roam in herds and flocks much like they would in the wild. Hop aboard the Wgasa Bush Line Railway, a 5-mile (8-kilometer) journey, and encounter herds of giraffes and elephants, crashes of rhinos, and a pride of lions. Legoland

  9. LegoLand
    Imagine a whole park constructed out of Legos and decked out in its primary colors. Everything is kid-sized and Legoland accommodates even the youngest children. Most of the attractions are hands-on and "kid-powered," and allow kids as young as three to ride solo while some allow parents to take infants aboard. Legoland is a great place to take your kids for a day they will always remember.

  10. Mission Bay
    The West Coast's largest aquatic man-made park covers over 4,000 acres and offers a wide range of recreational activities.

Public restrooms and showers are available and life guard station are located in designated areas.

  11. La Jolla
    La Jolla is located 15 minutes from downtown San Diego. It has wonderful beaches, cultural activities and fine restaurants. La Jolla is an exquisite combination of a southern European resort atmosphere and Southern California fun. While La Jolla is known to be one of the most affluent communities in the United States, it has a down to earth sense due to the beautiful natural scenery and the helpfulness of its residents. So during your San Diego trip, plan at least one day to experience everything that La Jolla has to offer.
