5 Kid-Friendly Activities in North County San Diego

Family Time in San Diego Is a Breeze for Adventurers, Animal Lovers, or All of the Above


Everything is awesome when you’re at LEGOLAND. With three different parks to explore — LEGOLAND, LEGOLAND Water Park, and SEA LIFE Aquarium — families are in for a weekend of fun. LEGOLAND’s array of ticket packages allow guests to curate their experience. At LEGOLAND, dive underwater in a real submarine and embark on an aquatic treasure hunt with LEGO City: Deep Sea Adventure, and visit LEGO metropolises like New York City, Washington, D.C., and New Orleans. Learn about rock pools, bioluminescent tides, and the lost city of Atlantis at the SEA LIFE Aquarium, and cool off at LEGOLAND Water Park’s Surfers’ Cove.

2. Storytime at the Library

For developing minds, interacting with literature is beneficial not only in honing prereading and prewriting skills, but it’s fun! The San Diego County Library offers storytimes across the county, from Del Mar to Rancho Santa Fe. At Solana Beach, stop in for songs and stories on Monday mornings, or swing by the Del Mar branch for toddler yoga. Each library branch’s activities calendar will differ, so check your local branch to make sure you don’t miss out.

3. Roar & Snore Safari Park

Animal lovers can experience the San Diego Zoo after hours at the Roar & Snore Safari at Safari Park. With guided walks and campfire activities, this late-night escapade will entice everyone from preschoolers to senior citizens. The park hosts themed sleepovers throughout the year, like Creepy Camp in October and Holly Jolly Jungle in November, and their variety of tent options accommodate most family sizes. If your little ones aren’t ready for an all-night excursion, the San Diego Zoo has other Safari programs, such as the Behind-the-Scenes Safari for a look into the keepers-only sections of the Zoo and a high-flying Flightline Safari.

4. Pacific Animal Productions

Invite adventure into your life with Pacific Animal Productions. These animal enthusiasts bring exotic wildlife to birthday parties, libraries, and more in the hopes of educating and entertaining. By providing safe environments for both animals and audiences, Pacific Animal Productions allows guests to interact with specially trained animals, including Fennec foxes, Harlequin macaws, wallabies, and tamanduas.

5. Tide Beach Park

San Diego’s perfect beach weather means that it’s always a good day to play in the waves. Only a 20-minute drive from Rancho Santa Fe, families can examine the tidepools at Tide Beach Park in Solana Beach for a firsthand science experience perfect for curious kids and adults. Get up close to sea creatures while snorkeling, or make it an adventurous afternoon of bodyboarding and surfing. For a midday snack, pack a picnic lunch so you won’t miss a moment of sun. During the summer, a lifeguard keeps watch over the shore to help families feel at ease.
