Explore Balboa Park
One does not come to San Diego and skip out on an adventurous day exploring Balboa Park. This local attraction is always a favorite and features a variety of museums and other fun activities all in one giant location. Walk around the gardens and see beautiful flora on display. Most families know that Balboa Park is home to the San Diego Zoo, one of the highest rated zoos in the entire world. This extensive zoo remains open during the winter season where you can see some majestic creatures in person. Take a look at different exhibits that house over 3,500 animals including lions, giraffes, elephants, and much more. All attractions inside Balboa Park including the San Diego Zoo continue to follow state mandates on mask wearing and social distancing so please follow all advised recommendations during your visit.
Go Whale Watching
One great activity that makes it easy to implement social distancing is whale watching. The winter season around New Year’s Eve is the best time of year to go whale watching in San Diego. These beautiful animals migrate to warmer waters around San Diego during the winter. San Diego features plenty of charters you can book to go out onto the water and see these whales in person. Popular charters include San Diego Whale Watch and Hornblower Cruises & Events. Book a public cruise where others join you on the boat or reserve a private cruise where you and your family are taken out on your own. Choose whichever option best suites your comfort level this winter.
