During a fun-filled day in San Diego, families can take in a baseball game at Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres
, or have a quintessential San Diego experience with a visit to the world-renowned San Diego Zoo
. Just a short trolley ride from downtown, in Balboa Park
, the San Diego Zoo is home to over 3,700 animals. Visitors can explore the zoo via a bus tour or an overhead gondola lift, called the Skyfari, providing an aerial view of the zoo.
On the west edge of downtown San Diego, the Embarcadero District is home to the San Diego cruise terminal, the Navy Pier, and Seaport Village. Visitors can explore the ships at the USS Midway Museum, the Maritime Museum of San Diego, or hop aboard a harbor cruise and take in views of the San Diego Bay from the water.
