Pack the Sunscreen and Head to the Beach 

San Diego is known and loved for its endless sunshine, making it a great place to plan a beach-focused getaway with the kids. The city is home to no less than 70 miles of coastline to explore so you’ll have plenty of choices when it comes to what type of beach day you’re looking for. Consider packing layers, hats, sunglasses, and beach toys to make more of the experience. Destinations like Mission Bay Park, La Jolla Shores, Mission Beach, and Coronado Beach are great options to pairing your time on the sand with time exploring scenic trails, bike paths, and even small amusement parks too! 

Incorporate Learning into Your Adventures 

When you travel to San Diego with children in tow, there are plenty of opportunities to add stops to the itinerary that are equal parts engaging and educational. The city is rich in history and some of the historical sites are sure to captivate the attention of young minds and adults alike! Balboa Park is a great example of a destination where you can access everything from the iconic San Diego Zoo, a carousel and museums while exploring one of the oldest areas in the entire city. Head to Old Town to check out tasty restaurants and shops that are built around a historical center. A visit to the USS Midway Museum is always inspiring and if you’re looking to make your historical visits more comprehensive, consider purchasing a multi-day Go Cit San Diego multi-attraction pass to cut down costs and keep the fun going for the entire family. 

Make Time for On-the-Water Fun 

For all of the land-based options for fun you can enjoy with the kids in San Diego, getting out on the water is equally appealing! From the Pacific Ocean to Mission Bay, the options are vast and varied for adventures on the waves. Many families opt to make it a day of paddleboarding with older kids.
