The Treasure Box of California - My Family Travels

           Everything lives in San Diego: animals, nature, history, culture, and entertainment. Harmonious community is created under the warm sun, by the beautiful beach, backed by proudly standing mountains. There is always something to see, feel, listen, and taste. San Diego is a place where keeps you busy with delightful enjoyment.

            I recommend all the guests to, first, visit the Coronado Island. Coronado is my very favorite place in San Diego where you can experience the Californian life with blazing sun, hot beach, and ice cream. Beach on the east side of the island receives calm waves where people can relax, have BBQ with families, go on kayak, and take a stroll. Many gift shops, art galleries, restaurants, and hotel rooms line up by the beach creating lovely area for a walk. The ferry landing is also located on the east side of the island allowing guests to go back and forth Coronado and San Diego Downtown. On the other side of the island, where aggressive waves are received from the Pacific Ocean, people enjoy surfing, jogging, and bonfire. Dog beach is also located on the west side where people spend time with their loving buddies in the water. Hotel del Coronado is located just by the beach where it creates beautiful view with the blue ocean. In the center of the island is Orange Avenue where numerous restaurants, yoga studios, shops, and cafes line up. One of the places I recommend you visit is Moo Time, an ice cream place. They got the recognition as the best ice cream place in the whole island, which I would say as the best in San Diego that every guest should have a taste of. My favorite flavor is coconut and forest berry, but there are many other flavors and they are all tasty. Coronado is definitely a place that you should visit when you are in San Diego.

            Zoos are one of the most exciting places in San Diego as well. San Diego Zoo is one of the biggest zoos in the world and it is also well known for its variety of animals; they have got animals from all over the world that live in different climatic regions. They received pandas in the park several years ago and many guests come to the zoo just to see them. Taking tour in the zoo is like taking around- the- world tour. There are buses going around the zoo as well as an aerial tram. San Diego Safari Park is also a great place to visit because the animals here are released in a much larger space where they have more freedom in movement. You get to see how the animals would actually live if they were in the wild. There are some bus tours available in the park where guests can go behind the fence and be in closer distance to the animals.

             Mexican culture is preciously preserved in San Diego. In San Diego, Mexican population is a major portion of the whole, which allow the culture to flourish and history to be passed on. Old Town is a great symbol of that. Old Town preserves the old Spanish settlement buildings and houses, many of them are left for display, but some of them are used as stores and restaurants. Mexican music is frequently played in the restaurants and it stirs the guests’ excitement. The stores also sell traditional Mexican decorations and paintings.

             There are more to see in San Diego, but I will leave it to you to discover the rest.
