The Best Activities in Mission Bay for Kids Free October

Endless Memories Await Families Visiting Mission Bay’s 27 Miles of Sandy Shoreline This Month

As part of the San Diego-wide initiative, Kids Free October, Mission Bay is offering an extensive schedule of complimentary activities for kids on Saturdays throughout the entire month. From princess visits and lightsaber lessons to hula dancing and tug-of-war, there are fun activities for every family. Mission Bay's Kids Free offerings welcome guests and locals to explore the waterfront destination and experience unique, interactive activities spread across the destination's six hotels and resorts: Bahia Resort Hotel, Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, The Dana on Mission Bay, Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina, Paradise Point Resort, and San Diego Mission Bay Resort.

In addition to the kid-friendly programming, Mission Bay's businesses will celebrate kids throughout October with special deals on their existing offerings, ranging from free meals for children under the age of 12, a kids' "allowance" and complimentary paddleboard and kayak rentals from Action Sports Rentals (with a paid adult rental), and free admission to SeaWorld San Diego (with a paid adult ticket), as well as a stuffed animal giveaway from the theme park for kids staying at each property.

Check out the best kid-friendly activities rotating throughout each of the Mission Bay hotel properties on Saturdays this month.
