This Weekend in San Diego: Opt for an Outside Adventure
Trying to figure out what to do this weekend in San Diego? San Diego is filled with adventurous spots and lively events to check out. Although the weather has recently been moody, don’t let that stop you from exploring the thrilling attractions San Diego offers.
Whale Watching in San Diego
California Gray Whales undergo their annual migration from Alaska through San Diego and onto Baja California. During December through April, whale watching in San Diego is at its peak because the whales migrate close to shore and can be seen from land or sea. February is the month to see these majestic animals up close and will be an unforgettable experience you can partake in this weekend.
San Diego Tide Pools
Exploring the San Diego Tide Pools is an activity you can enjoy solo, with kids, with your best friend, or significant other. From February 6th to 12th and the 23rd to the 28th, the low tide conditions will be perfect to view the tides. Fortunately, fall and winter are the best times to explore the San Diego tide pools and it’s free in most locations. Some recommended tide pools are Tourmaline Surfing Park, False Point and Dike Rock Beach in La Jolla, and Swami’s State Beach.
On Saturday February 11th and 26th, Naturalists from Scripps Birch Aquarium will help you discover inhabitants of the tidepools in La Jolla and will only cost $16 per person. You can make a reservation for this interactive experience at Tidepooling Adventures.
At Belmont Park San Diego, you can ride the Big Dipper roller coaster, play in the arcade, or zip-line with an incredible view of Mission Beach. The attractions are endless with a rock climbing wall, sky ropes and a pool all accessible with entry to the park. The Escapology attraction also recently opened, which gives players an hour to find clues, unlock doors, and escape the room.
At San Diego Movie Theaters, there are many romantic movies out to see with someone special. The anticipation is finally over because ‘Fifty Shades Darker,’ ‘A United Kingdom,’ and ‘1 Night’ come out today. Other romance movies that are still available in theaters are ‘La La Land,’ ‘The Space Between Us,’ and ‘Passengers.’
