What To Do On A Lovely Day In San Diego

There’s so much to do in San Diego, that I often have to really think about what I want to do on my days off – we are spoilt for choice.  Should I visit Seaport Village, Coronado, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, La Jolla Beach, Del Mar Beach or Carlsbad?  Well, this weekend on Saturday, I decided to take little Chandi to Legoland which is in Carlsbad, just 40 minutes north of downtown San Diego.  The weather has been beautiful this weekend, it certainly feels like summer already.

I just bought annual passes for myself, Chandi and her brother and sister.  Big brother and sister have had annual passes before when they were young, and now complain that they don’t remember.  So, they won and got their way….I indulged them and they now have no excuses for not remembering as they are both quite a bit older than Chandi.

Here’s some pictures taken this weekend (yesterday):

Of course, children come here to play

They also like to dance up and down near the water fountains which are interactive, and either play music when jumped upon or squirt out water

Don’t forget to visit the miniature cities made out of lego bricks

You can surely guess these cities in the USA?

Don’t forget to take a boat ride on the Fairy Tale Brook, it’s great for kids of any age, and you’ll see characters from all your favorite fairy tales, including Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, and so much more.

If you want to stay really close by to the Legoland Park, you could stay at the newly opened Legoland Hotel, which is right there in the grounds, less than a twenty second walk away.

And they won’t want to go when it’s time to leave.

Annual passes for Legoland are $129 each for adults and kids over the age of 13 +
Annual passes for kids from the age of 3-12 are $99 each.  Click here for more information on Legoland.
If you live in California, you might as well buy the annual passes because the day pass is $79, so just by visiting twice – you’ll get your money’s worth!  Did I mention that Legoland is just across the street from the beautiful Grand Pacific Palisades, which overlooks the gorgeous Flower Fields?  You could start your day out with a walk by the Flower Fields, followed by the rest of the day at Legoland…….. it makes for a really nice day out.

    Lovely post. I have never visited Legoland, not even in Denmark, nor my children or grandchildren. It seemed to be nice place for families and Your photos are great. Thank You showing them.

    Are Angry Birds known in California? Angry Birds are video games known everywhere. In Finland we have world’s first Angry Birds land in the town called Tampere:

    Angry Birds and city of Tampere.

      Thank you Matti, for your lovely comment. Legoland is indeed a great place for families – my two oldest kids (16 and 11 years old) actually prefer Legoland over the San Diego Zoo because of the rides. My youngest – Chandi – likes both the Zoo and Legoland. As far as Angry Birds – I have heard about this game from my kids. I didn’t know until now that it was a Finnish creation. I took a look at your link and loved the pictures you took of the Angry Birds amusement park in Tampere – I know that my kids would definitely enjoy a visit to a park like that.

      I hope you have a fabulous week, and I hope that the weather will warm up for you soon.

    Be sure to go next door to the Legoland Aquarium. It’s separate from Legoland so I don’t think your annual passes allow you to get in, but I’m not sure. They have the best octopus aquarium of any of the hundreds of Zoos and Aquariums that I’ve been to.
