San Diego For Kids

Although San Diego has many things for grown ups to

enjoy, it hasa lot of activities for kids to enjoy

as well. Custom made for families, San Diego has

plenty of public parks, nice weather year round,

several museums, and many things for children of all

ages to amuse themselves with.

For kids who love animals, there’s the well known

San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Animal Park. The zoo

is located in Balboa Park, while the park is located

a bit north of the city. If you have the time, you

should take a full day for your kids to enjoy the park

and the zoo. If the traditional zoo makes your kids

uncomfortable, the park is a great alternative.

Kids of all ages also enjoy the world famous Sea

World, which is home to Shamu the killer whale and

several other marine animals and exhibits. Sea World

has been a great attraction for kids for many years,

showing them the marine life like never before.

When it comes to the winter months, whale watching is

a very popular activity. You can watch them from

the coastline or take a cruise. Watching the gray

whale is very amusing to kids, openening their minds

to new possibilities.

Balboa Park is a great place to visit as well, as it

has a lot more than the San Diego Zoo. There are

places for kids to explore, with the children’s museum,

the Fleet Science Center, and the Natural History


Another popular park for kids is Legoland California,

which is located north of San Diego. There are a lot

of things to see in this park, with a majority of

the park being built from the popular Lego blocks.

Overall, this is one of the best and most quiet options

for younger children.

Hitting the beach is great as well, as San Diego has

many different beaches for kids of all ages. On the

beaches, kids can build sandcastles, rent boogie

boards, or just enjoy the swimming that San Diego so

proudly displays.

Older kids will enjoy the true recreation mode for

San Diego – roller skating and rollerblading. Along

Mission Bay there are great spots, along with

playgrounds and parks. You can fly kites here as

well, which is a great break from the ordinary.

Amusement Parks are a great attraction in San Diego,

with Belmont Park being very popular. There are many

rides here, amusing kids for hours on end. The

Giant Dipper and the Plunge are among the best, for

younger or older kids.
