One of the best San Diego attractions, this theme park is located only 7 miles from the Oceanside Amtrak station, making it very accessible from most major California cities.
Geared toward children ages 2-10, this Danish amusement park captivates your imagination with its intricately built Lego City and amazing Lego creations made with thousands of Lego bricks.
If go during the summer, bring along a spare change of clothes. There are tons of places to get wet, including a great water park and rides like Aquazone, Skipper School and Splash Battle.
Our kids loved the Volvo Driving School, which has two tracks geared toward younger and older drivers. For an added fee, children can even get their own drivers license!
Parents will appreciate the Model Mom Baby Care Center where you can privately feed your baby, change a diaper or grab a band aid. Next door, kids can try their hand at their own Lego creations in the Lego Club House.
Little boys will love the Indiana Jones Lego walkthrough and Lego Star Wars exhibits. You'll want to sign up early to take part in the Lego Mindstorms activities, which almost always sell out by noon.
Before you leave, don't miss a stop at Granny's Apple Fries. In my opinion, these fried, cinnamon-dusted treats, slathered with vanilla cream, are the best thing at the park.
