SeaWorld San Diego Guide

I’ve been visiting SeaWorld San Diego since I was a child and it’s still fun to go now as a mom. This theme park does the best job of catering to kids of all ages from toddlers to teens because you can see Elmo, but also ride multiple high-speed roller coasters (that I can see from my backyard over Mission Bay).

Plan your visit here with my tips for what to know before you go in addition to easy ways for buying discount SeaWorld San Diego tickets, the best rides, and a run-down of the many annual events that can add extra fun to your day out.

Families visit San Diego specifically to spend a day or more in the park. I’ve listed my favorite hotels near SeaWorld San Diego in a variety of budgets. I have some extra benefits for you to take advantage of at a few of them. You can also shop for vacation packages below.
