San Diego Spring Break Family Activities

Aside from drawing an influx of party people, spring break lets families ride the rollercoaster of the season's high spirits and festive atmosphere, too. Here's how.

  • 1. Annual San Diego Crew Classic

    Rowing boats fill San Diego's scenic Mission Bay during the year's first major regatta. Over a hundred crews take part in this two-day rowing race every March, a classic San Diego happening that fills the city with buzz and boaters. Watch the country's titans race from the shore, where live-streamed coverage keeps you on the edge of your lawn chair.

  • 2. San Diego Zoo

    One of the best zoos in the world, California's premier zoo is home to some 3,000 animals and more than 650 species set in wildernesses that mimic the animals' natural habitat. That isn't all though – go on safari at the San Diego Safari Park, just beyond the city limits. Fly over herds of grazing zebra in a Skyfari cable car, watch a Komodo dragon flicker its tongue, and check out the largest koala colony outside Oz.

  • 3. Wildlife watching in La Jolla

    The ritziest of the city's many districts is also home to the famous Children's Pool, where you can enjoy sapphire ocean views along with watching a sea lion colony bask in the sun and seals shoot through the waves as they play and dive for fish. The area has been entrancing families since the 1930s – kayak through the ecological reserve to take a closer look.
