Founded in 1916, the Zoo has been an icon in San Diego for nearly 100 years—and an absolute must-see in Southern California. Spend the day monkeying around in our tropical oasis as you visit beautiful habitats that are home to gorillas, eagles...more

For the past three years in May my wife and I take our son and daughter to the zoo.
It's only a 90 minute drive and based on the variety, size, animals and fun activities we prefer the San Diego Zoo over the LA zoo.
One day is not enough to maneuver through this massive zoo. We got a bit lost so signage/maps could be a little better but we had a blast and enjoyed a beautiful day with the animals. We also had lunch in the restaurant and it...More
My friend and I spent the whole day at the zoo. The sky tram was closed for the annual check up. We enjoyed the whole day. We love seeing the panda, although thought the enclosure was a bit small. But the bear is thriving and...More
The Zoo is amazing! I would get here early if you can. It is nice to beat the crowd. I like the walk, but if you have never been you may want to take the bus. I would walk first. My favoirites are the Koalas,...More
The San Diego zoo is considered one of the best in the US and I concur. It is well organized and the staff was excellent. To see everything will take a whole day. It's a great educational experience for all ages. It was very interesting...More
Not sure if they have TV’s, but there are restaurants inside the zoo that may have TV’s playing the game. The zoo is centrally located though, close to downtown, so you can definitely go watch the game.

Best Area for San Diego Zoo and Torrey Pines (6 Replies)
Hello, My husband, myself, and our 2 year old son will be in SD for 2.5 days. We plan on arriving on a Friday morning and leaving Sunday after breakfast. We do not like being rushed and don't want to plan on too many activities as we are traveling with a toddler. So we have narrowed down our must do activities to Balboa Park/Zoo and a visit to Torrey Pines. Friday: Torrey Pines, Lunch, and ????? (suggestions? beach?) Saturday: Balboa Park and Zoo and maybe dinner in Little Italy (we...More

Hi, When are you coming? I ask because prices may depend on month/dates etc?? When you say "Torrey Pines" do you mean you want to walk/hike at Torrey Pines State Reserve or do you mean you want to see the Torrey Pines golf course or Torrey Pines State Beach??? Balboa Park and the Torrey Pines area are about 15-20min apart by car so you can stay anywhere in the city and easily get to all areas with a car. IF you want a bit more room with your toddler I'd look at the Homewood Suites by...More

Just a follow up to my question about doing tour to San Diego Zoo, I went ahead and booked it as there really wasn't an alternative for me, I was due to go tomorrow received confirmation and E-ticket. Phoned to reconfirm to find they had sold me a non existent tour, have been promised a full refund $140.00 so fingers crossed so be wary of any tours you THINK you have booked with them
