San Diego Travel Guide: 3,389 reviews and 7,744 photos


There is so much to do in San Diego - luckily it is only a couple of hours drive away from Los Angeles and we can go there for short weekend trips.

So what is there to see in San Diego?

Probably the most famous things-to-do in S.D. is a visit to Sea World, one of the worlds biggest "marine adventure parks". Definitely worth a visit, but it requires a minimum of one full day to see most of it.
If Sea World is too wet for you, then the S.D. Zoo might be an option. It is home to over 4,000 animals (800+ species), and offers a guided tour-bus, a gondola, and amultitude of exhibits.
And if that is too tame, but you still want to see animals, then go to the S.D. Wild Animal Park, which houses wild and endangered species from all over the world.

What else is there to do?

- Old Town S. D.
- El Prado (Museum Square)
- Balboa Park

Take a short drive

- Coronado Island
- Mexican Border (Tijuana)
- La Jolla

These are just a few, but they'll keep you busy. Definitely make time to stop by if you happen to be in Southern California
