Our guide to San Diego will help you find the best kid friendly parks in San Diego California. Although San Diego is the eighth largest city in the country, it's stayed true to its laidback surfer vibe mentality. If you're looking for trendy boutique hotels, an exploding culinary scene, and big-city nightlife, with a side of beach bum mixed in, you're in the right place! For families, San Diego is ideal. If world-famous destinations like the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, Belmont Amusement Park, and LegoLand (in nearby Carlsbad) aren't enough, families can take advantage of an abundance of museums, a children's theater, a puppet theater, and all sorts of other, lesser-known but no less entertaining attractions. With this much to offer, it's no surprise that tourism plays a major role in San Diego's economy. Other big contributors include biotechnology, agriculture, manufacturing, and defense-related industries. The US Marines and the US Navy maintain several bases in the county. There are tons of great kid friendly parks in the city of San Diego, our city guide will help you find the best kid friendly parks. You may have a hard time deciding what to do in San Diego, but we make your decision easy.
