San Diego is famous for its many local attractions, but this can make it difficult to choose where to start upon arrival. Sea World is a wonderful adventure for adults and children. It is best known for the shows put on by different sea mammals. The shows run many times a day and include a whale show, a dolphin show, and a seal show. Additionally, Clydesdale horses are stabled in the park. Guests are allowed to walk through to see and pet them. These are the largest breed of horses in the world. Also for animal lovers is the San Diego Zoo. The zoo is famous for the variety of animals they keep and breed. Among the animals exhibited are pandas, koala bears, tigers, meerkats, and elephants. The zoo offers special tours before regular zoo hours and a safari experience that takes visitors off the paved walkways and into the zoo’s natural exhibits.
 
Do not forget that San Diego sits next to the Pacific Ocean. This means that there are numerous sunny beaches for visitors to relax on as well as boardwalks for them to explore. Walking along the sun-soaked beaches is one of the most eagerly anticipated activities sought by visitors, and for a good reason. The sights offered by the San Diego beaches are wonderful. There is always a chance to see migrating whales or dolphins pass by on their way to destinations unknown. Seals also like to soak in the sun and can often be found lying on rocks, enjoying the day.
