As the fog rolls in for our chilly San Francisco summers, I am doing as many weekend getaways as possible. Don’t worry, our sunshine will reemerge in September as everyone else is breaking out the scarves and pumpkin spice lattes! One of my favorite places to visit is San Diego. I swear the weather there is amazing year round! As you saw in my Coconut Shrimp post, I have teamed up with La Victoria to bring you their amazing giveaway of a weekend getaway for two to sunny San Diego. This has inspired me to share our little trip to the incredible San Diego Wildlife Safari Park. It needs to top your list of must see’s in San Diego!
The San Diego Wildlife Safari Park (Yep, that’s the San Diego Wild Animal Park to all of us who have been visiting since before 2010 & cannot handle the new name) is my favorite zoo. The animals have huge enclosures to roam around in, the weather is always fantastic, and they have some seriously fun options like taking a safari jeep out into the exhibits and a zipline. You can even spend the night at their Roar & Soar option or take a hot air balloon over the park. It’s a really fun way to see the animals in more of a natural habitat than most zoos.
All of the baby animals are my favorite! How cute is that tiny elephant??? Or the giraffe following his mama?
Anyone else have the Lion King song running through your head as you look at these photos????
I know, I know….who visits San Diego for anything more than the beach? But really, how can you resist that face? This place is the ultimate animal spot (short of a safari trip….it’s on the bucket list!)
The cheetah race is really fun. They have a dog who is best friends with their cheetah & they let them race to show the speed of the cheetah. The two are so adorable playing together afterwards!
Who’s inspired to go to San Diego now??? I’m totally ready to go back! Don’t forget to enter to win a weekend getaway from La Victoria!
