Many people don't know this, but Sea World in San Diego was the firs Sea World in existence. Most people assume that claim to fame goes to Sea World in Orlando. What many people don't realize is that Sea World in San Diego has many different types of whales to see, including beluga, orca and pilot whales. If that's not enough excitement, then perhaps the polar bears will interest you. These enormous creatures are often active in their large and natural-habitat-like environment. The dolphins are always fun to watch due to their extremely high level of intelligence. The manatees might not do tricks, but you can still watch what are sometimes described as the friendliest creatures on earth. For some humor, visit the penguin exhibit, where the music matches their funny little steps with perfection.
If you want a truly full Sea World San Diego experience, then buy the two-day pass. This will get you the behind-the-scenes tour. This tour is different from one day to the next, but you will always see the pilot whale. If you're lucky, you might also have an opportunity to pet sharks.
La Jolla Children's Pool
In most cities, a children's pool wouldn't be listed as an attraction. However, in San Diego, it's a much different situation. This children's pool of course has a pool, but that's only half the fun. This particular pool is also close to the ocean, where you have an opportunity to snorkel, swim and scuba dive amongst local seals. Even if you don't want to scuba dive, you will still see the seals sunning on the beach or rocks. The views here are superb, and you can even venture into the caves.
If you're looking for the best views in all of San Diego, then this should be your first choice. Try to go prior to low tide. This will allow you to see the tide pools. Also be sure to check out the Cabrillo Monument. It's recommended that you start on the east side and make your way west.
Once again, San Diego is unlike any other city in the world. In most locations, the ocean wouldn't be listed as an attraction, but here, it would be unfair not to mention the ocean. This is the lifeblood of San Diego. You can sunbathe, surf, body board, parasail and much more. If you want to venture out onto the ocean, then you can go whale watching or fishing.
Wild Animal Park
The Wild Animal Park might be 35 miles away, but it must be mentioned. It's by far the best attraction in San Diego. It's much different from any zoo because the animals are free to roam and happy opposed to locked up in cages. The Wild Animal Park is 2,000 acres of pure paradise. Its size prevents crowds, and you can watch gorillas mimic people, feed giraffes, put yourself within inches of a lion, and eat at a restaurant overlooking a safari-like terrain.
