For a relaxing, serene experience, there's Turtle Reef, where guests can see dozens of sea turtles swimming in their 280,000-gallon habitat.

With all the fun happening inside the park, guests may not know what goes on behind the scenes, where SeaWorld is caring for rescued animals that were found ill, injured or stranded on beaches along the San Diego coastline.

The heart of every city lives in its downtown, and San Diego is no exception. Located only ten minutes from SDSU, San Diego's thriving downtown districts offer a plethora of options for activities and cultural attractions.

San Diego’s distinct downtown neighborhoods offer a diverse variety of activities for every visitor, from families to sophisticated urbanites, with plenty to see, discover and indulge. With the legendary Gaslamp Quarter nestled in its core, San Diego’s downtown sits next to the beautiful San Diego Bay, offering scenic views of the water as you walk through the bustling urban streets of this clean, friendly and accessible downtown district. From museums and bayside boardwalk communities, to posh nightclubs and high-profile restaurants, all accessible on foot, trolley, train or cab, you won’t be short of things to do during your stay.

On the west edge of San Diego downtown lies 3 miles of the Embarcadero district. Meaning "the landing place" in Spanish, the Embarcadero boardwalk hugs the east side of San Diego Bay, and is home to the San Diego cruise terminal, the Navy Pier and Seaport Village. Climb aboard to explore the ships at the USS Midway Museum, the Star of India, or the Maritime Museum of San Diego. If a moving sea vessel is more your flavor, hop on a harbor cruise and explore the San Diego Bay. For fun on land, visit Seaport Village to grab a bite or pick up a one-of-a-kind gift.

If you're looking for some local flavor, immerse yourself in San Diego's Little Italy district, just north of the downtown. Grab an espresso and biscotti from a local café, or dine alfresco with a plate of hand-made pasta and a glass of Chianti. To walk off that authentic Italian meal, stop into any one of the many art and design galleries in Little Italy, showcasing artwork by international to local artists and furniture designers.
