We enjoyed a fun three day San Diego family vacation and found that San Diego really lived up to its reputation of housing world-class family attractions. 

Here are our favorite kid-friendly attractions in San Diego! 

Bike the Beach and Bay

This ride ended up being one of our most fun things to do in San Diego with kids. We enjoyed bike dodging between all the characters sharing the path with us. 

Eat Nachos and Craft Brew at South Draft Mission

For the kids, order them a Mexican soda which is the rage in San Diego. Its soda made from pure cane sugar and nicer tasting than that other stuff. 

I love the stillness and serenity of just me being out there on the water with the salty breeze on my back. I slip into true Tao spirit on a SUP. 

Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Kayaking on Mission Bay

The Corvette Diner is like the nightclub for families. I promise you before the night is through, you’ll be singing at the top of your lungs with the DJ – “Let’s hear it for the boys!” 

Get Retro and Funky at the Corvette Diner

The sunsets are one of the most beautiful things to see in San Diego, and there’s only one thing to do after such a pretty close out to the day…celebrate with ice cream! 

Watch Sunset at Pacific Beach Pier
