You can enjoy many Fourth of July Celebrations across the city through different communities in the county. From parades to fireworks and extravaganzas, there’s almost always something going on in the major parts of the city: Coronado, Spreckels Park, Glorietta Bay, and the Port of San Diego.
San Diego has many places you, your friends, and your family can go to explore. Whether you just want to hike or want to explore with your bike or even to set up a picnic in a more natural and exotic location, there are many options. You can even try special getaways designed especially for hikers exploring the mountains.
From surfing to scuba diving, there are multiple aquatic activities that individuals and groups of friends can go do spice up their summer. If you like the water and exploring, consider going scuba diving to see exotic and exciting creatures under the water along the coast of San Diego. With professional scuba divers at your side, you can see miles of specially protected underwater destinations that you’ll see nowhere else.
If you would rather stay above water, you could go jet skiing or find a boat to go sailing on for the day. There’s nothing quite like being out on the open waters without an agenda or a place to be. Going out on the water can be a great way to relax and spend time with close friends and family.
Have a dog that loves to play outside? Every dog loves to play outside, of course, and if you want to treat your companion to an outdoor adventure, try out one of the many dog beaches throughout San Diego. Many of these designated dog beaches are even welcoming of leash-free dogs, allowing them to roam and explore with freedom.
Experience SeaWorld San Diego
Everyone should experience SeaWorld at least once in a lifetime. In San Diego, SeaWorld converts into an entirely new experience during nighttime, complete with extended hours, new animal shows, pathway entertainment, and fireworks.
San Diego Zoo
If you like the nighttime experience, the San Diego Zoo also has special activities in progress during the late afternoons and evenings. You’ll get to enjoy music in a variety of different styles, such as rock, mariachi melodies, brass band, smooth acapella tunes, and more! From acrobatic trampoline shows to exotic lighting, music, and video experiences, there’s so much to do for families of all ages.
For creative individuals, enjoy LEGOLAND, a one of a kind experience unavailable in most other places throughout in the world.
