With an average year-round temperature of 70.5 degrees (21.4 degrees Celsius), San Diego offers a wide array of family-filled activities. I have compiled a list of the top 3 things to do on a family vacation to San Diego, California that involve animals and animal interactions. While there are dozens of opportunities for families to get close to nature while visiting San Diego, I have picked the most popular attractions as I see them. If you have more ideas or experiences, please comment on the article below. Whether you visit one of the many aquariums, bird sanctuaries, or simply walk the beach, tell us your experience of San Diego natural experiences.

The San Diego Zoo is one of the best representations of different animal species from around the world, housing almost 4000 different animals and spanning over 100 acres. Whatever your favorite animal is, the San Diego Zoo will surely have it swimming, sleeping, or swinging peacefully within the grounds. Visit the Giant Pandas, roaring big cats, swinging monkeys, or slimy snakes. Anything is possible at the San Diego Zoo!

Sea World San Diego – “Shamu! Shamu!” Join the crowd in calling out to the most beloved superstar of Seaworld, the killer whale “Shamu”. Offering dazzlingly displays of jumping, twirling, and splashing, Seaworlds killer whale show is one of the most popular attractions in San Diego. And if that’s not all, there are dozens of fantastic shows featuring flipping dolphins, goofy walruses, and silly penguins. Many visitors find themselves returning again and again to Seaworld for more family fun.

Wild Animal Park – The Wild Animal Park is located in Escondido, CA and is a short drive north from downtown San Diego. An expansive wildlife sanctuary, it is home to more than 3,500 animals representing more than 400 species. Its renowned botanical collection represents 3,500 species and 1.5 million specimens. Over half of the Park’s 1,800 acres (730 hectares) have been set aside as protected native species habitat. It is located 35 miles (56 kilometers) north of downtown San Diego in the San Pasqual Valley near Escondido, California.

If you have any more ideas please feel free to comment on this article. Every activity is well worth a day of family fun! San Diego is world-renown for its beaches, sunshine, and animal conservatorship. With special discounts for families and especially larger parties, experiencing these parks is well within the reach of most families visiting the most beautiful city in Southern California. Walk the beach, enjoy the sun, and visit one or all of these parks. Your family will thank you!
