Day 1 - San Diego


Upon arrival into San Diego, head north to the San Diego Wild Animal Park, where you'll find a full day of activities that are entertaining for adults and children. The kids enjoy the safari rides and animals, while beer stations please the adults. Finish your evening with a burger and shake, the best around, and a comfortable night on Pacific Beach's classic pier resort, the Crystal Pier Hotel.

Day 2 - San Diego


Wake up early and walk across the street from your hotel to the Kono's Cafe, a simple menu that serves up huge pancakes, breakfast burritos and bacon for cheap. As your kids are likely to wake up early, you'll probably miss the line and after a hearty breakfast you can work your way down the boardwalk. Head into La Jolla for the day, where you can not just enjoy the beach but the seal lions and La Jolla Caves.

Right in the area is the local favorite Extreme Pizza, whee you'll find a wide variety of entrees perfect for all members of the group. And for the parents who need to wind down, right next door is the new wine bistro Burgundy, get a glass while the kids are relaxing and everyone will sleep well.

Day 3 - San Diego


If you're willing to trek up to north county once again, visit Legoland California, where kids and adults ride all day long on some classic contraptions. If not, travel just south of the hotel to SeaWorld San Diego, where dolphins and whales are on display. Get a quick but nutritious lunch at Which Wich, where you'll choose between a plethora of sandwich options.

Return to the hotel and get "dressed up" for a nice dinner at downtown's favorite kids' spot, the Corvette Diner. A themed restaurant with more burgers and fries, it will really get the kids going, before they pass out.

Day 4 - San Diego


A family fun vacation in San Diego wouldn't be complete without a trip to Petco Park. Nosh on some Friars Franks and sodas while cheering on the local team, the San Diego Padres. Depending on the time of the game, try and catch a trolley ride into the area, making parking less of a hassle - plus it's relatively inexpensive and will get the kids excited and help rock them to sleep on the way back in (there's a stop around every corner, ask your hotel for the closest one). Finish the night (if your stomach can handle it) at Phil's BBQ, that serves up the best grillin' in town and is on your way back to the hotel in sports arena.
