No matter what San Diego attractions fill up your itinerary, San Diego Charter Bus can provide simplified and comfortable transportation for every type of group outing. Here are some destinations we’ve recommended to travelers in the past:
Why not take a walk on the wild side at one of the most revolutionary zoos in North America? The San Diego Zoo boasts open-air, cageless exhibits designed to replicate the residents’ ecosystems, meaning you’ll be nearly face-to-face with the animals in their natural habitat! With a private bus rental, you can visit the elephants, rhinos, giant pandas, big cats, reptiles, birds, and much more without sweating the transportation and parking details.
When you’re done exploring the San Diego Zoo, explore the surrounding greenery at Balboa Park. This urban greenspace is known for its winding pathways through open gardens and the gorgeous architecture of the park’s numerous museums, like the San Diego History Center, the Natural History Museum, and many art galleries and theaters. With lush scenery and stunning San Diego cultural centers around every corner, visitors can shrug off the hustle and bustle of city life while wandering the grounds.
Have you ever wanted to step foot in a floating piece of history? At this dockside naval museum, you can! Once the longest-serving aircraft carrier of the 20th century, the USS Midway is now on permanent display in San Diego’s Navy Pier as an interactive museum. This popular San Diego attraction features over 30 restored aircraft and 60 onboard exhibits, offering visitors a glimpse into the world of maritime aviation.
This picturesque stretch of beachfront is perfect for those in search of sand, surf, and sun. The Cove is part of a protected marine reserve and is home to a diverse array of aquatic wildlife, making it a popular spot for snorkeling and scuba. The beach is within walking distance of tidepools, beach caves, and quaint local shops and restaurants, so plan to spend an entire day taking in all that La Jolla has to offer.
This historic district is a must-see for any out-of-towner who seeks a taste of local life. From widely-acclaimed dive bars and cocktail lounges to festivals and concerts in the Spreckels and Balboa theaters, this 16-block stretch of downtown San Diego provides plenty of entertainment options for a lively tour group.
Need to get away from it all? We recommend taking a day to hike through this wild span of Southern California coastline. Trails take visitors across a rocky plateau to a scenic overlook of the Torrey Pine State Beach. Here you can stretch your legs and breathe in the ocean air to the sound of migrant seabirds and crashing waves.
An hour drive away from San Diego city center, this LEGO-themed amusement park and resort is well worth the long haul for youngsters and the young-at-heart. Attractions include an aquarium and waterpark, numerous roller coasters and rides, and a miniature park with small-scale replicas of the country’s iconic monuments and buildings.
Perched on the southernmost tip of the Point Loma Peninsula, this monument and park marks where Europeans first set foot on the North American west coast in 1542. Come explore the historic lighthouse, inspect the wildlife in the Point Loma tidepools, or simply take in the panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. On clear days, you can even spot parts of Mexico from this scenic lookout.
This historic beachfront amusement park offers visitors thrills and entertainment with a vintage flair. Whether you’re here for a ride on the Giant Dipper— the park’s wooden roller coaster first constructed in 1925— or a leisurely stroll along the boardwalk shops and restaurants, Belmont Park is an iconic San Diego landmark you will not want to miss.
If you’re looking for oceanfront recreation, you’ve come to the right place! As the largest man-made aquatic park in the country, this 4,235-acre span of shoreline and paved trails attracts water skiers, wind sailors, campers, joggers, roller skaters, cyclists, sunbathers, and other outdoor enthusiasts from all over town.
