If you’re in San Diego — for vacation or otherwise — I encourage you to take in some of the sights of America’s Finest City. Even if you don’t have a rental car, you’ll be able to get about the downtown quite easily on foot and can roam the outskirts by taking the train. (The transit station is just a few blocks from the Convention Center, so you have the world at your fingertips.)

Here are some of the highlights of San Diego, children not included in the touring experience:

Cabrillo National Monument

The USS Midway

El Indio Restaurant – the home of the taquito

The San Diego Zoo

The SD Zoo Safari Park, formerly known as the Wild Animal Park

  1. Don’t forget the Queen Bee Market is this weekend in San Diego. This is such a great place for shopping and inspiration. It is amazing!

  2. Husband and I went to Southern Cal. for honeymoon and took the Pacific Coast Highway to San Diego and went to the zoo. Loved the drive almost as much as the zoo. That was ten years ago! We need to do it again. 🙂
