Outdoorsy and Carefree: San Diego Shore Excursions

San Diego cruise excursions offer a new side of the city, where the year-round warm climate lends itself well to exploration and plenty of sunshine. Before you hop on a cruise from San Diego, don’t miss the city’s best sites, like the San Diego Zoo.

Outdoor enthusiasts will love San Diego shore excursions, where paragliding, sailing, snorkeling, and kayaking are readily accessible activities at beaches like Mission Beach and Pacific Beach. Head to Mission Boulevard for some of the best food in Southern California after a day full of sun and activities. The cool Pacific Ocean is known for plentiful opportunities to surf California’s waves, and the mild weather means you can opt outside most days of the year.

Families travel from all over the world to experience the massive San Diego Zoo, which is one of the most popular things to do in California. The zoo is home to nearly 4,000 different animals and over 600 species, and it’s one of the largest zoos in the world. The San Diego Zoo is conveniently located within Balboa Park, where there are museums, theaters, and well-kept tropical plants for you to admire when you’re done touring the zoo. Plus, Balboa Park hosts all sorts of events and classes.

Cross the bridge and you’ll find yourself at Coronado Island, where the Hotel del Coronado is a still-standing testament to a bygone era. Today, it’s a historic landmark that was once the largest resort hotel in the world.

Of course, your time on San Diego shore excursions wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Cabrillo National Monument, a statue commemorating the arrival of Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo on San Diego Bay in the 16th century. Check out the Liberty Public Market, which used to be a naval training center. Driving through San Diego via coach is one of the best ways to see the city’s most unforgettable landmarks.
