Description: Pacific Beach is one of the popular San Diego neighborhoods that many people go through each day. The actual beach area stretches for miles along the coast, and there is a boardwalk that runs beside it. Usually this beach is crowded along the boardwalk, especially in the afternoon and evening. There are many stores, restaurants, bars, and other establishments that can be found along this stretch of beach. There is also a public pier that can be used for fishing or just sitting and watching the sun rise or set.
Our Experiences: We spent some time enjoying the beach here, and then we strolled along the boardwalk. There are crowds but that is part of the charm of the area. We went into some of the shops and watched people as they went by. The kids enjoyed the beach and they were interested in the street performers and wide mix of people here.
Description: Seaport village is one of the popular San Diego neighborhoods and attractions that draws in large numbers of visitors each day. Situated on the waterfront this area is known for incredible shopping and dining. There are more than 70 establishments, and they are a mix of shops of all sizes, art galleries, and restaurants and informal eateries. There are around 4 miles of walking paths, and cars are not allowed within the complex.
Our Experiences: We spent several hours wandering through Seaport Village, and everyone enjoyed the afternoon considerably. There were many interesting shops that we browsed in, and a number of galleries with a wide variety of art on display. The paths were not straight like a street would be, instead it tended to meander some. We recommend this stop to anyone who enjoys shopping or exploring unusual shopping areas and malls.
Description: Take a wild zoo safari without leaving San Diego. There are many packages and safari types to choose from, and you may even find a zip line tour with incredible views of animals in their natural settings. This type of exciting experience makes a visit to a typical zoo pale in comparison.
Our Experiences: We decided to visit a local zoo and take advantage of the wild safari adventure packages that were offered after we visited the popular San Diego neighborhoods earlier. This was a very unusual experience that we all loved. There were several packages to choose from and different ways to go on safari in the park. This stop is highly recommended for families who enjoy seeing animals and who are also looking for an exciting adventure.
