Things to Do in San Diego

At the San Diego Zoo, you can experience recreations of natural habitats and watch the animals interact. It’s also one of the new zoos that features a giant panda. Grab a ride on a guided-tour bus or on the Skyfari to get a bird’s eye view. As you stroll around you’ll see gorillas, polar bears, birds, koalas and many more animals.
