San Diego County Vacation Rentals

Known as one of the best vacation destinations in the country due to its sunny weather, amazing attractions, and miles of gorgeous sandy beaches, San Diego, California is an absolute must-see for any discerning traveler. Outdoor adventures abound along the breathtaking terrain and the numerous attractions in this city are some of the most famous in the world. Come to San Diego the next time you are in Southern California and experience what all the buzz is about.

The beaches of San Diego are renowned for being some of the most beautiful and scenic along the California coast, and with so many to choose from, you could end up spending your entire vacation lounging in the sand. While all the beaches have something to offer guests, Mission Beach and Coronado Beach are two favorites that will take your breath away. At Mission Beach, surfing, swimming, and kayaking are all popular ways to enjoy the water, while people-watching, biking, or rollerblading on the boardwalk is bound to bring interesting sights.

Coronado Beach is accessed via the San Diego Bay Bridge and is worth the excursion due to its elegant, upscale surroundings. While the beach is the ideal place for swimming, sailing, and sunbathing, the nearby homes, restaurants, and boutiques mean you could spend an entire day on the island without a dull moment. It is important, however, to return to the beach at sunset so you can soak in the amazing views of San Diego and the Pacific Ocean.

Probably the most famous of all of San Diego’s attractions is the San Diego Zoo. Known throughout the world as a top-notch zoo, it attempts to recreate the natural habitats as closely as possibly for the more than 3,800 animals and 800 species that live on its 100 acres. All the exhibits are impressive so plan on spending an entire day trekking around the park, experiencing the many exciting tours and activities this amazing attraction has to offer.

If you or your family craves more animal activities even after your visit to the San Diego Zoo, make your way to the SeaWorld Adventure Park. Here you can see Shamu the killer whale, of course, and a variety of other animal life such as polar bears, manatees, and dolphins. The animal-themed shows are usually the most thrilling and exciting part of the experience for kids, so make sure you at least catch the Shamu show extravaganza where he lives up to his reputation as a true showman.

When searching for the best shopping or dining in San Diego County, head over to the Gaslamp Quarter to see a lively neighborhood that blends food, fun, and culture in one of San Diego’s most historic areas. Surrounded by Victorian-style buildings, the fine art galleries, unique shops and specialty boutiques offer a glimpse of the local flair, while more than 90 restaurants are waiting to serve you food from all over the world.
