From sandy beaches to bustling nightlife, there’s so much more to see and do located just a short drive away from Welk Resorts San Diego.

Visit family-friendly designations such as SeaWorld, the world-famous San Diego Zoo, LEGOLAND and SEA LIFE Aquarium, and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

In the city, visit the San Diego Gaslamp Quarter, Balboa Park, and Old Town, or catch San Diego Chargers football and San Diego Padres baseball. Or take a break from the urban bustle to explore the beautiful Temecula Valley Wine Country, the Carlsbad Flower Fields, or miles of beaches that stretch along the Southern California coast from Carlsbad to Coronado.

To make the most of your Southern California stay, Welk Resort San Diego Vacation Planners can help you with package tours and day trips to popular family destinations such as Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Hollywood and Baja California, Mexico. Shuttles depart to take you from the Welk Resort into the city of San Diego, to Hollywood and the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, as well as to Harrah’s Rincon Casino and resort.
