List of Things to do on a West Coast Road Trip {with kids!}

While Planning our West Coast Road Trip I assembled the following list of things to do in each place we're visiting...


San Diego, California

Beach Obviously.

Seaport Village

Children's Museum

Gas lamp District

Torrey Pines State Park

Tidepooling at Point Loma Beaches

We don't do theme parks or zoos.  I'm not into fake attractions or caged animals instead we opt for natural adventures likes hikes and if we do go shopping on vacation I try to make sure there is either historic relevance or local handmade items.
