So many great things to see and do with kids here

San Diego, CA, United States
0 Kudos
A great city to visit with the kids in the winter time to get rid of those cabin fever issues you deal with in your house. Whether it is parks, the beach, or aquariums to visit there are ample ways to spend your vacation time. I highly recommend spending good amount of time at the beach as the warm sun and cool water make you feel much, much better after being cooped up all winter. My two kids had a blast at all the places we visited and want to go back immediately. Quite frankly, so does the rest of my family!
