Spring is finally here, which means Spring Break is upon us! If you are new in America’s finest city, it can be a bit overwhelming trying to find activities for the family. But that’s OK because we can help you out with that! When you live in a city where it’s 75 degrees in the middle of winter, you learn to get acquainted with the beach and water parks. Here are three locations for you and your family to visit for your Spring Break.
San Diego’s Waterfront Park
Bring the kid’s downtown to San Diego’s Version of Central Park. Located in downtown San Diego near Little Italy is the 12-acre park loaded with tons of activities to keep the kids entertained. The park will also allow reservations for birthday parties. (No Lifeguard on duty)
Enjoy your afternoon at Santee Lakes’ Spray grounds. The location is small and easy for you to keep a close eye on your munchkins. The spray grounds are available to kids under the age of 13. Enjoy a nice picnic by the lake. Feed the ducks as they through the beautiful lakes. Be sure to pack flip flops or water shoes to prevent those feet from getting burned or blistered.
