Father’s Day Ideas Near Downtown San Diego

By Mike in Things to Do with 0 Comments

There is no place better to spend Father’s Day than in sunny San Diego. Whether you’re an adult who has flown the nest and just purchased their first downtown San Diego condo or you’re looking for ideas little ones can “treat” dad to, here are a few fun ways to spend the day with dad.

A Day at the Zoo

The world famous San Diego Zoo was voted the number one zoo in the world by TripAdvisor’s reviewers. Although it is fun to take a leisurely walk around the 100 acres, a double-decker bus tour will ensure that you see most of what the Zoo has to offer, including the more than 4,000 animals that call the zoo home.

Schedule a Tee Time at Balboa

Spend Father’s Day morning on the links at Balboa Park’s golf course and enjoy sweeping views of downtown, Point Loma, and the ocean. The course is a par 72 and green fees are $40 for residents with a valid City Golf ID card or $50 for non-residents.

Stroll Around Historic Old Town

Checkout 17 points of interest depicting what it was like to live in San Diego in 1850. As you walk around, enjoy the free live entertainment including mariachis, dancers, and people dressed in period attire. Don’t forget to make a reservation at one of the many delicious Mexican restaurants in Old San Diego.

Sail the Tall Ship Californian

The Maritime Museum is offering a one-of-a-kind adventure this coming Father’s Day. It starts with a souvenir photo followed by bratwurst and beer for Dad and hot dogs and soft drinks for the kids. After lunch, Dad can help the crew working the lines and handling the sails as the ship sails the waters of San Diego Bay.

Check Out the San Diego Air & Space Museum

Located in Balboa Park, the museum offers a close-up of many aircraft, from a replica of the 1901 Wright Glider to the Apollo IX Command Module, as well as over 65 other aircraft. While you are there, visit the special exhibit about Leonardo Da Vinci and his many inventions.

No matter what you do, the best part is spending time with Dad. As we get older, however, how we show appreciation to those who raised us often changes. If you prefer to spend the day asking Dad for his insight and opinions on real estate in downtown San Diego, we can help. Give us a call at (619) 649-0368 and schedule an appointment today. ')}
