Where the cars are the stars! The San Diego International Auto Show features the widest variety of new vehicles under one roof.
Discover San Diego’s awesome water parks, providing family-friendly alternatives to a beach day plus hours of fun in the sun.
Just as temperatures start to rise and beaches start to fill, seasonal water parks add their high-flying slides, surf simulators and lazy rafting rivers to the aquatic adventures that are already available year-round. So take a break from the beach and slide into some wild, wet action at one of these water parks.
The largest man-made aquatic park in the country, Mission Bay is all about family fun. The 27 miles of shoreline offer golden beaches for sand castles, sunbathing and shell collecting. Water adventures include sailing, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, windsurfing, water skiing and fishing. On shore, the park features miles of bike paths, playgrounds, grassy picnic areas, volleyball nets and more. Boats and bikes can be rented from many of the resort hotels and aquatic centers that line the bay. There are also two boat launch ramps at Ski Beach and South Shores. The park regularly hosts exciting events such as the Crew Classic and Over the Line Tournament. And when the sun goes down, a number of park beaches feature bonfire rings where making memories is only a s'more away.
San Diego’s newest theme park is full of watery wonders, with 11 aquatic attractions to complement its generous collection of “dry” rides. The 17-acre Sesame Place – the only “Sesame Street”-themed park on the West Coast — invites visitors to try out such splashy, family-minded rides and slides as Bert’s Topsy Turvy Tunnels, Snuffy’s Spaghetti Slides and Oscar’s Rotten Rafts, as well as Big Bird’s Beach, a 500,000-gallon wave pool surrounded by a sandy beach. The park, operated by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment and now open year-round in San Diego’s South Bay community, is also a Certified Autism Center.
The LEGOLAND Water Park, tucked inside LEGOLAND California Resort, combines water play with LEGO creativity. It’s a perfect spot for toddlers and tweens, particularly LEGO aficionados, as it features more than 20 LEGO models, including a 45-foot-tall tower with multiple slides and a shallow wading pool, two sandy beach wading areas, a splash zoo for little tikes and a lazy river, complete with giant LEGOs that allow you to customize your own raft. Park entrance to LEGOLAND is required with the water park and costs an additional fee. The water park is seasonal, open May through October (and only on weekends in May, September and October).
The Wave water park is the perfect place to cool off when in the City of Vista. This aqua-playground has plenty of pools and waterslides including the Slide Tower, featuring four exciting slides—the Salsa Twist, the Tubulation, the Flash Flood and the Slam Dunk. Try the Flow Rider, a simulated wave machine for body boarding or relax on the continuous lazy river while tubing. Little ones love Rippity's Rainforest, a two-story play structure with tunnels, bridges, slides and more for kids under 48 inches. Children under 3 years old are free, as is parking. The park is open in late May through mid-September.
