Family-Friendly Travel Destinations
Let us count the ways it’s family-friendly: There’s the San Diego Zoo, and the Wild Animal Park, where animals roam in natural settings. There are theme parks: One worth standing in a few lines for is LegoLand, about 33 miles north of San Diego, in Carlsbad; it’s small enough to cover in a day and has villages geared to different age groups. Kids can ride coasters; parents can marvel at the Lego White House replica. Then, when you’re ready to take a break from the lines and lounge in the sand for a day (or a few days), there are beaches. In the suburb of La Jolla, La Jolla Shores has fire containers for barbecues. La Jolla Cove's beach is smaller, but it has a grassy play area and arguably the best snorkeling in San Diego.
