The San Diego Tourism Authority mentioned dozens upon dozens of outdoor attractions and one of it is hanging out by the beach. One of the beaches they named is Imperial Beach.

“Imperial Beach is just five miles north of the Mexico border, and includes a 4-mile stretch of beach offering a host of activities including great surfing, sport fishing, beach volleyball and horseback riding along the coast. The Imperial Beach pier provides sweeping views of the Los Coronados Islands and is a popular spot for strolling, pier fishing and watching the sunset. Imperial Beach is connected to Coronado by way of the Silver Strand, a narrow, 7 mile long isthmus, popular for camping, bird watching and bicycling.”

USA Today’s 10 Best meanwhile shared ten attractions families should not miss when visiting San Diego. Topping their list is the San Diego Zoo.

“Located in Balboa Park on 100 acres, the Zoo is home to more than 4,000 animals and 800 species, many of them rare or endangered. Wander through the lush landscaping of over 700,000 exotic plants. Combined, the backdrop makes the Zoo a perfect place for a morning walk. Most of the exhibits are designed around particular habitats. Malaysian tiger families can be seen roaming their grassy canyons in Tiger River, playful polar bears live in Polar Bear Plunge while giant pandas sleep (and occasionally move around) in the Panda Trek exhibit.”

Field of Flowers

Another outdoor attraction that should not be missed by families is Carlsbad’s Flower Fields. Travelmamas.com recommends this place as this allows children and adults as well to enjoy the sights of colorful flowers that should definitely be a treat to their senses.

“Here, you can tiptoe through a maze made of sweet peas and ride a tractor-pulled wagon through more than 50 acres of rainbow-colored rows of flowers. Older kids who like a challenge can fill paper passports at stamp stations set up throughout the Flower Fields. At Santa’s Playground, children climb and slide among the restored play houses and gigantic mushrooms that were part of the once popular Santa’s Village amusement area.”
