    Ocean Beach

    57 reviews

    Just south of the Ocean Beach pier is a fantastic stretch of tide pools. An accessible dry reef provides easy access for families who wish to check out of these unique salt-water habitats for marine life. The best time to view the tide pools is during a mid to low tide.

    Sunset Cliffs

    48 reviews

    This is a great place in San Diego to sit and watch the sunset, as you can imagine from the name. It is a short walk/drive from the heart of Ocean Beach, and it is well worth the visit.

    Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography

    53 reviews

    This is a rather small aquarium, but we all enjoyed ourselves. I love supporting this place rather than Sea World..but that's me. The interactive activities they have there are great for kids of all ages. Little ones will be mesmerized in the large kelp aquarium. This is also a GREAT place to hold special events!

    Little Italy Farmer's Market

    This is an amazing Farmer's Market to visit! It's located in gorgeous Little Italy, a short drive from downtown or walk to the bay front. There are a number of food vendors but you're also surrounded by wonderful restaurants. Parking can be tough but be patient! I love the feel of this farmer's market, everyone is so pleasant and the ...

    San Diego Padres

    42 reviews

    I don't like baseball (I know, I'm so un-American), so I really only pledge my loyalty to the Padres out of hometown bias. But I have been to two live games at Petco Park and I have to admit, the atmosphere is so energetic and infectious - especially when we play our arch enemies: the LA Dodgers. ;)

    Belmont Park

    45 reviews

    The park is fun for kids with the carnival rides and games including the Wave House, and for adults/teens it's an area where there are always a lot of people. There are a couple of bars/restaurants and a great beach boardwalk to walk/skate/bike/people watch.

    San Diego Museum of Art

    39 reviews

    Well, this is a world-class museum isn't it? I have seen paintings "in person" here that I thought I would only see in books. Even the building itself is worth seeing, as any art museum should be. I try to go every time I am in San Diego. There are also nice cafes, since it is in Balboa Park, and ...

    Coronado Beach

    35 reviews

    This is a really great beach for children. Hardly any waves, a lot of sand ant not very crowded. It's a semi-long walk from the sidewalk near the street to the actual shore, it certainly makes it a unique beach! Lovely homes overlooking the water!

    BEAUTIFUL beach! If you can find parking along the street you don't have to pay either. There is also a really nice walk up to the reserve, which is followed perfectly by a dip in that crisp Pacific!

    San Diego Comic Con International

    32 reviews

    I've gone for the past 6 years and 2014 was the only year I couldn't get Preview Night! /sadface The ultimate popculture event which should be experienced at least one by everyone (if you can get tickets) They give an earlier window for previous year's badgeholders to purchase the following year's tickets, so that's why my group will never (hopefully ...

    Mission Bay Beach

    37 reviews

    I love walking around and seeing the children playing on the playground. Plenty of grassy areas to have a picnic, family party, BBQ, play a game of volleyball, fly kites, whatever your heart desires. Plenty of parking, access to bathrooms, and lovely views. Kids will love this area. Also, great if you want to park your RV by the beach!
