Summer vacation is almost here, and where better to spend your time than in sunny, vibrant San Diego? When you stay at the Bed & Breakfast Inn in La Jolla, you’re just a short drive away from everything San Diego has to offer — and right around the corner from some of the most beautiful beaches in the area. But there’s more to San Diego than beaches. The question isn’t whether you should spend your summer vacation here, but how you’d like to spend your summer vacation. Here are just a few attractions you might consider while you’re here for the summer.
SeaWorld is one of the biggest attractions in San Diego, and it’s perfect for a summer splash. There’s something for everyone: a waterpark with thrilling rides, a chance to swim with dolphins, and beloved shows involving dolphins, orca, and sea lions. You can visit the aquarium to explore a wide variety of wildlife or get up close and personal with “killer whales,” who, in actuality, aren’t very dangerous at all.
San Diego Zoo
The San Diego Zoo is an exciting place to be all year long, but in the summer, it can be especially exciting with the opening of Night Time Zoo. Night Time Zoo includes longer zoo hours, lingering after dark, with live music and exciting guest entertainment. However, the zoo is still worth exploring during the day, whether you’re here to see the leopards, arctic foxes, Chinese alligators, or a wide selection of plants. You can even take your trip a step further into the adventure by checking out the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
Balboa Park is a sprawling cultural park that actually hosts the San Diego Zoo, as well as nineteen museums, a number of performing arts institutions, and lush gardens. It can be a great place to walk around and get a sense of San Diego, and if you plan your trip correctly, it could be the best place to get dinner or go on a date. For instance, if you visit on Food Truck Friday, you can find over a dozen food trucks to choose from. These nights have become quite an attraction, and now include free entertainment such as professional DJs and space for children to play.
Birch Aquarium at Scripps
If you stay in La Jolla, the Birch Aquarium at Scripps is the closest attraction on this list to you, and well worth checking out. The Birch Aquarium is an extension of the Scripps Institute of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego, a world-renowned program. And with more than 60 marine habitats and 5,000+ fish, the aquarium well lives up to the Scripps Institute reputation. You can watch the inhabitants of Birch Aquarium during feeding time or check out unique exhibits such as the Infinity Cube or the R/V Sally Ride Gallery.
