1. San Diego Zoo

You can’t visit San Diego without a trip to the famous San Diego Zoo.  Home to more than 3,700 animals including the highly sought after Giant Pandas; this zoo offers up much more than just a few animal sightings. With over 100 acres to explore, plan on spending the entire day at the zoo.

Choose to walk the hilly trails, hop aboard the guided tour bus or fly through the air on one of two overhead gondola lifts. San Diego Zoo offers a multitude of extra experiences for the true animal lover. Choose anything from breakfast with the Koalas to a private two-hour tour with the Giant Pandas to a twilight trek after the sun goes down. Eat lunch on a treetop patio, grab a brew at the Zoo Brew located in the Lost Forest or indulge in a gourmet funnel cake from Poppy’s Patio in Discovery Outpost. From lions to tigers to bears; this zoo delights both adults and kids alike.
