There is an early spring everywhere it seems and San Diego is no exception. It is the ideal time to head to southern California and the coastal city of San Diego for a little getaway. The ocean is a brilliant blue, the sky mirrors the depth of color with added highlights of soft white clouds, and the sun is shining overhead spreading its health-invigorating affects all around. Traveling in an RV to experience this early spring weather is a grand choice as you will have a wonderful place to relax while on the road and in between adventures.
When coming to San Diego in an RV, there are many RV campgrounds from which to choose. You should take your time to pick your favorite before leaving home. You might like La Pacifica RV Resort or Campland on the Bay. Perhaps Santa Fe Park RV Resort or Paradise by the Sea RV Resort would be your top choice. Whichever you pick, you’ll discover great amenities and easy access to all San Diego sights.
Perhaps the first thing you’d like to do is get out into nature and enjoy the great fishing and hiking that this area has to offer. At Lake Cuyamaca the crappie and sturgeon are biting. When you visit Lake Morena you can fish between hiking adventures. Catch some bluegill and native trout at Lake Jennings.
There are always wonderful things to do and see at Balboa Park. This is where you’ll find San Diego Zoo and the animals that are waiting just for you to stop by. The lions, giraffes, tigers, and monkeys are such fun to see. Hike the trails, bring your pets out to play, and tour the gardens in Balboa Park. This is the best spot to spend an entire weekend.
Of course, you realize that Sea World is nearby! This is one attraction you simply can’t miss when in San Diego. Besides the fascinating marine life and fun shows, like Blue Horizon, there are plenty of great rides – different kinds for different members of the family. Explorer’s Reef is a new exhibit and you’ll want to be one of the first to see it.
Now it’s time to take it easy, get out of the sun, and visit some of the area museums. The first one to see is the Museum of Contemporary Art. No matter the age of your family members, everyone can enjoy this museum. For the younger ones, include a stop at the New Children’s Museum.
