San Diego has often been called an ideal family vacation spot, because of its great weather, over 70 miles of beaches and all the wonderful attractions and museums in the city. Another bonus? Disneyland Resort, at just 100 miles away, is the perfect destination for a day trip from San Diego.
San Diego is the perfect place to make your Southern California homebase during a fall vacation. You can enjoy great local attractions including the beach, SeaWorld and LEGOLAND for the majority of your visit and then take a quick day trip or two to the mountains for some skiing/snowboarding, Joshua Tree National Park for some hiking or Disneyland for some holiday family fun.
