San Diego is a wonderful place for a vacation. It is one of my favorite places to visit. It has fantastic weather, lots of interesting places to visit, a rich history, and lots of beach attractions. It is also on the border with Mexico which makes for a great day out. As well as lots of outdoor attractions there is also lots of shopping opportunities along with great bars and restaurants.
Two world famous attractions are the San Diego Zoo and Sea World. The zoo has many attractions with opportunities to see some rare animals. Sea World is ideal for children and includes lots of exciting rides and extravagant aquatic shows. Both these attractions can take a whole day to discover. Another wildlife oriented attraction is the San Diego Wild Animal Park where you can view many exotic animals.
For some of the premier dining in the area visit the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego. There are many dining options as well as great shopping and other entertainment options. This is a historic area that you can roam around in and well worth a visit.
Balboa Park is one of the main cultural centers in San Diego. There are many museums to visit along with many other cultural and art centers. Balboa Park is also home of the San Diego Zoo. Nearby is the birthplace of California – Old Town.
For beach lovers – well what can you say? There are miles and miles of fabulous beaches. Visit the island of Coronado home to one of the oldest and most famous hotels the Del or Hotel Del Coronado. The beach here is one of the best in the country.
San Diego is known as “America’s Finest City.” And rightly so. There are so many thing to see and do – for people of all age groups. And the perfect weather make it just so much more special.
