San Diego Area Attractions
Planning a trip to California this summer? Before you head off on your vacation, take a look at some of the coolest attractions in the San Diego Area - it'll save you from reading through all those tourist brochures!
San Diego - San Diego Wild Animal ParkGet up close and personal with wild animals at the San Diego Park. We're talking native animals of Africa, the Brazilian Amazon and other exotic places in the world. The park offers tours throughout their various exhibits, including the Savanna Cool Zone. You'll travel through the habitats of giraffes, elephants and even lions!
San Diego - San Diego ZooThe San Diego Zoo is home to hundreds of different animals from panda bears to flamingos. This year, a brand new exhibit has been added called Monkey Trails and Forest Tales. This new exhibit houses 30 different species of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. The Monkey Trails allow you to walk through this unique habitat on a pathway that has been built through the tree canopy! From monkeys to exotic pigs, you'll encounter it all at the San Diego Zoo! An interesting fact is that it took 1,300 truck loads of dirt to build the Monkey Trails habitat - that amount of dirt would fill 213 buses. For more information, head to www.sandiegozoo.org
San Diego - SeaWorldWhat's better than a day at the water park? A day at a water park that's home to some of the most interesting deep sea creatures in the world. Watch live shows with killer whales, dolphins and other SeaWorld performers. Jump into the tide pool habitats and introduce yourself to starfish, hermit crabs and other beach dwellers. Discover animals you wouldn't see anywhere else, like Arctic penguins, various species of sharks and many other underwater animals. There's so much to check out at SeaWorld that you won't have a problem spending the entire day there exploring! For more information, check out www.seaworld.com.
