5 Fun West Coast Travel Ideas for Families

San Diego Area

Continuing down the coast, we come to the San Diego area. Animal lovers can have a ton of fun in San Diego, which not only offers the San Diego Zoo but also SeaWorld and the San Diego Wild Animal Park.

For those who enjoy interesting architecture, tours are available to showcase San Diego's rich architectural history.

Beaches can lure many families looking for fun, and whale watching, surfing, jet skiing and sailing are among the many activities beach-goers can look forward to. When it's time to get out of the sun, consider the San Diego Natural History Museum, San Diego Museum of Man or the San Diego Museum of Art. There's even a museum in the bowels of an aircraft carrier -- the USS Midway Museum.
