Traveling to San Diego with Toddlers

Activities for Toddlers in San Diego

If you’re a first time parent, traveling with your toddler may seem like a challenging and somewhat daunting task. Fortunately, there are many vacation destinations that are great for families with toddlers, San Diego being one of the best. Although popularly praised for its active nightlife scene, America’s Finest City offers a variety of new experiences for little ones that will provide endless discovery and delight.

If you haven’t yet made reservations for your family vacation, start by booking a room or suite at the Marina Inn, a family friendly and affordable hotel in downtown San Diego. Then, check out our top picks for mom-approved activities that are great for toddlers to complete your vacation itinerary.

Lions, and Tigers, and Bears, Oh My!

The San Diego Zoo is located in the heart of downtown San Diego and offers plenty of space for your toddler to roam and meet new friends. This zoo is world-renowned with more than 4,000 animals in 9 distinct habitats. Although it seems like a lot of walking around, there is a bus and an aerial tram where you can catch a glimpse of zebras, lions, and giraffes without having to exert too much energy. With numerous playgrounds and play areas, movie theaters, live shows and a carousel, there are plenty of activities for your toddler to enjoy. If you’re on a budget this vacation, know that kids under 3 are admitted into the park free of charge and there are a few options for quality, yet cheap San Diego Zoo hotels that will help keep you and your wallet happy.

Under the Sea

Your toddler will have plenty of space to explore what marine life’s all about at SeaWorld in San Diego. Before heading out for a full day of fun, be sure to grab breakfast at your affordable SeaWorld San Diego hotel or outside of the park. This will help ensure your little one has all the energy he or she needs for a full day at the park. Your toddler will delight in watching the dolphins play and perform tricks, and even has the opportunity to get up close and personal with the penguins at the park. SeaWorld also has a section of the park devoted just to younger visitors and your toddler can meet, greet and have their photo taken with their favorite Sesame Street characters. And for a bit of fun, don’t forget to stop and check out the rides including Elmo’s Flying Fish or Oscar’s Rocking Eel.

Touching Allowed

The New Children’s Museum is a hands-on museum for children to touch and discover the world around them. The exhibits have been created with younger visitors in mind, making for a stimulating yet fun activity that isn’t offered at many attractions. If you’re visiting on a Friday, be sure to stop by in the morning because the museum offers a fun weekly activity that is geared towards toddlers. After participating in the day’s arts and crafts and the weather is nice (which it almost always is in San Diego), check out the bubble fountain in the outdoor area. Here you and your little one can select from a variety of bubble wands, creating bubbles of all shapes and sizes and can also chase some of the larger ones around.

With the proper planning, your first vacation with your toddler can be an experience that the entire family will enjoy. While planning is important, also be flexible with your schedule, allowing extra time at lunch to eat or pushing your itinerary for a much needed mid-day nap.

Activities for Spending 1 Day in Coronado

Coronado Day Planning


If you are planning to visit San Diego, you undoubtedly want to spend some time in Coronado. Don’t allow your limited resources to prevent you from experiencing this luxurious and beautiful manmade island. If you plan your visit right, you can enjoy virtually everything that Coronado has to offer within a short period of time, all while staying within your budget. Here are some ideas on what you can see and do on Coronado Island in one day:

  1. Any itinerary should begin at the Coronado Visitor’s Center. Inside, you will find plenty of information on the island’s sights and attractions.  Pick up a map, a list of events and ask about the best modes of transportation.
  2. Coronado Beach is one of the must-see places during your day trip. This beach was voted the #1 beach in the U.S. in 2012 and for good reason. When you combine Coronado’s almost perfect weather with expansive beach space and a scenic backdrop, you’ll see why this beach consistently draws in tourists and locals alike.  It is renowned for being not only one of the best beaches to stay near in San Diego, but it is undoubtedly one of the best spots in the country for surfing and sunbathing.
  3. The Segway of Coronado is also something fun to experience. The tour guides will help you learn how to ride a motorized Segway as you are guided through a stunning sightseeing tour of the city. This is an excellent way to see some of the city’s top attractions in a short period of time. Fly by Glorietta Bay and this historic boat house and wind up at Ferry Landing for a photo op with the Coronado Bridge.
  4. Coronado is also known for its high quality arts venues. The island is home to theaters such as the Lamb’s Players Theater, the Coronado Playhouse, and the Village Theater. However, art galleries offer another great reason to spend a day in Coronado. The Dan McGeorge Gallery features stunning photographic art that can’t be seen anywhere else. If you love photography, make sure to put it on your itinerary.
  5. The Vietnam Memorial Monument is a beautiful tribute worth seeingthat commemorates local Navy and Coast Guard members who were killed in action. Coronado Island has strong ties to the U.S. military and currently has two military bases that call this beautiful city home: Naval Air Station North Island and Naval Amphibious Base Coronado. If you’re interested in learning more about San Diego’s military history, head over to the San Diego Marine Core Recruit Depot museum near Old Town San Diego.
  6. Coronado is also famous for its delicious restaurants. The Burger Lounge features a huge, mouth-watering array of choices. It’s the perfect place to stop by for a quick bite. Miguel’s Cocina is a great option for anyone who loves Mexican food. Peohe’s and Brigantine both serve sizzling seafood for lunch and dinner. Leroy’s Kitchen and Lounge is an enticing nightlife option.

As long as you plan out your time and your finances you can enjoy everything that Coronado Island has to offer in one day. Try picking one “splurge item” and then save money on all the rest. Definitely don’t book your hotel stay in Coronado as it will certainly be lavishly overpriced. Instead book an affordable San Diego hotel room at Marina Inn, located less than 5 miles away. You can get to Coronado Island from our hotel by enjoying a bayside walk, taking a quick taxi or you can easily hop on the trolley’s Green Line to the 12th& Imperial Exit and then the 901 transit bus toward Iris.

Craft Beer Events San Diego

The craft beer scene in San Diego is undeniably amazing, drawing in beer enthusiasts from around the country! Every month there are amazing brewery events and this month is no exception. Read on to discover what’s new in the world of San Diego craft beer.

Bagby Beer Co. has already got it in the Bag

This brand new Oceanside brewery has just begun the process of building and remodeling. While they’re not slated to open until the end of the year, they’re already attracting a lot of attention. In January, right after starting construction, they woke up to find their brand new building covered in graffiti. What did they find written on it? “Cancer Can’t Kill Me” sprayed in giant blue and yellow letters. However, once owners Jeff and DandeBagby discovered the story behind the mural they decided to keep it as a tribute. The taggers were friends of a man named Kenny, who was living out his last days with terminal cancer. Not only did the Bagbys decide to keep the mural as a permanent installment, but they also hosted a small memorial after Kenny recently passed.

Waypoint Public kicks off their Brewery Series

Waypoint Public, a newish bistro and beer bar in North Park, is kicking off their new beer dinner series this week with Lost Abbey. The 9-course dinner will be paired with specially made Lost Abbey beers and seating is limited to 25 people. If you don’t make it this week, count on making reservations for one of their other six scheduled dinners through September. Unpack at your budget hotel near the San Diego airport and then call Waypoint to make your reservation before they sell out (and they will sell out)!

Rip Currant Brewing Celebrates 1 Year

This highly acclaimed San Marcos Brewery will be celebrating its 1st Birthday this weekend with lots and lots of delicious beer. Their 1st Anniversary Party will take place this Friday and Saturday and their tasting room will be closed off to everyone except party ticket holders. Your ticket it good for one five-hour brewery session where you can drink up your ten 5oz tasters and then go home with limited release, hand bottled 22oz beer.

Beer & Food Pairings at SDMM BEERology

The San Diego Museum of Man has been showcasing one of man’s finest achievements over the past few months: beer. The beer exhibit, called BEERology, is running now through the end of summer. Not only do you get to learn about the history of beer but you can also taste various local brews at their tasting events.
