San Diego Summer Deals

Go back to your blissful elementary school days with a trip to LEGOLAND California. The amusement park, located in Carlsbad (about 40 minutes north of San Diego) is offering adult passes at the kid rate (ages 3-12) through the end of the year: both children and parents can gain park admission for $46, instead of paying the regular $59 adult rate.

In addition to LEGOLAND, Sea Life Aquarium is scheduled to open right next door this summer. For travels further down the coast, families can explore the San Diego Zoo for free. Purchase a one-day pass ($30 adults, $22 children) and get a free second-day pass that includes park admission and guided bus tour. Or, opt for the 3-for-1 Pass that grants you unlimited access to the zoo as well as attractions SeaWorld San Diego and the San Diego Wild Animal Park for five consecutive days ($109 adults, $86 children).
