SAN DIEGO MAP

ACTIVITIES

Maritime museums flank the cruise piers. The U.S.S. Midway Museum ($20/$15 ages 13-17/$10 ages 6-12) presents the famed warship and military aircraft, and honors the city’s naval heritage. The Maritime Museum of San Diego ($16/$8 ages 6–12) hosts a collection of historic sailing ships, and throws in two submarines for good measure. About .8 mile from the pier by the convention center and Orange Line trolley, the New Children’s Museum ($12 all ages) is focused on hands-on art and play for younger children, and nearby Children’s Park offers more ways to play. Old Town San Diego State Historical Park is a lively spot three miles north of the cruise pier, celebrating San Diego of the 1800s. Historic and reconstructed buildings, museums, restaurants, galleries and shops can all be found on the site of the oldest European settlement in California. Free admission. Allow at least a half-day for the famed San Diego Zoo. 9 animal “zones” present creatures and plant life from the Arctic to the tropics. $50/$40 ages 3-11. The zoo also operates Safari Park, 35 miles north of town (http://www.sandiegozoo.org). Balboa Park, site of the Panama-California Exposition of 1915-1916 covers 1,200 acres and is home to the zoo, 17 museums, and nearly 20 formal gardens. You can easily spend your entire day here. A One-Day Explorer Pass gets you into five museums for $45/$26 ages 3-12, and a free tram circulates throughout the park (http://www.balboapark.org). SeaWorld, the aquatic theme park, offers more than 35 shows, rides, and exhibits, plus extra-cost encounters with dolphins, belugas, and more $90 ages 3 & up. Discounts may be offered online (http://www.seaworldsandiego.com). Birch Aquarium in La Jolla, run by the famed Scripps Institution of Oceanography, is far more low-key than SeaWorld and is good for several hours of exploration. $18.50/$14 ages 3-17. The Coronado neighborhood, just across the harbor, is home to the Hotel Del Coronado and adjacent Coronado Beach, one of the finer family beaches anywhere.
