Our San Diego Vacation – Exploring Solana Beach!
I love to travel, perhaps more than most people I know… when I am on vacation I feel alive, I feel free from the everyday stress, I enjoy my time, and I love to travel with my family! A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to take my family on a San Diego Vacation!
We stayed in Solana Beach just north of San Diego, and took my parents along for the journey! We rented a 2 bedroom vacation home condo, that was by no means roughing it. It was over 1700 square feet!
The condo had a pool right on the ocean, with a hot tub, and a dedicated parking stall!
Our daughters delighted in having the pool, each day while by baby would sleep (I would work on my laptop looking out at the beach) and my husband would take our 5 year old to the pool to play!
Never once did they run into anyone else using the facilities! Lucky for them, it was like a private pool!
Of course no San Diego Vacation is complete without a trip to Sea World!
My girls love Seaworld! Our oldest Jaycee especially. She wants to be a dolphin and orca whale trainer!
She is enamored with these animals, and cannot get enough of them! She has watched every You Tube Video for dolphin shows, and Shamu as well.
She does a little Shamu/dolphin show daily in our living room for us to watch! Its been weeks since we have been home and those memories of Sea World are still alive!
SeaWorld offers a great experience, at an awesome price! We bought the annual pass back in December 2011 (the first time we went to the San Diego area), and it was valid until December 2012. We went 7 full days to SeaWorld for $70 each! Worked out to $10/day.
If you are considering a San Diego Vacation with children, I highly recommend you go to SeaWorld and buy an annual pass (its the same price for one day as it is for the annual pass).
Also a bonus tip for you, while we were there McDonald’s in the area were offering $8 off SeaWorld Annual passes making them even cheaper!
What is Our Secret to Afford So Many Vacations?
The secret to our many vacations is that we own travel membership! We have a lifetime membership that is NOT Timeshare, saves us oodles of money, and allows us to afford to travel often! The best part about our membership is that there are NO annual costs of any kind! Simple one time fee, for a lifetime of memories. Click here for details of how you can own this same membership. (We own Platinum).
How about those San Diego Beaches?
Another great thing about a San Diego Vacation is all the beaches! We went to the beach not intending to swim so my girls are not totally prepared! (so they are not in swimsuits)
The beach is beautiful, and there are tons of pathways to walk, bike or run along.
The water is cool but tolerable. Emzee our youngest was a little scared when a wave came up and soaked her clear up to her chest. (good thing daddy was holding on to her)
San Diego and area is beautiful, with close proximity to Mexico, its easy to jump over to Mexico for a day trip and come back to the USA side.
Do you have vacation plans? If not whats holding you back? Check out the travel membership, it was definitely one of the best purchases we have ever made. It reminds us to take the time to be with those we love, and enjoy our vacation time to relax, unwind, and regroup!
Until Next time, make it a great day!
