Marriott San Diego vacations put travelers near everything America’s Finest City has to offer.

Mission and Coronado beaches afford pristine ocean views and opportunities to swim, snorkel, surf and sunbathe. While sailing or waterskiing, guests can enjoy balmy sea breezes while skimming atop ocean waves. After the day is done, evening sunsets over the horizon make for a romantic date night setting or backdrop for excellent vacation photographs.

The San Diego Zoo boasts the opportunity for travelers to witness exotic animals firsthand. A vast variety of amphibians, birds, insects, mammals and reptiles from all over the world are available for viewing. If guests have good timing, they may just catch some animal antics on video that they can share over Facebook with friends back home.

SeaWorld is another popular San Diego vacation attraction. Kids can watch wide-eyed as killer whales and bottlenose dolphins perform aquatic acrobatics. Penguins are always up to something, and their playful poses will have kids giggling and doing the “penguin walk” all the way back to the family car. The San Diego Zoo Safari Park just 30 miles from downtown San Diego is home to more than 2,600 animals and sports a renowned botanical collection.

Golfers can enjoy hitting the links while on vacation in San Diego. Coronado and Balboa Park golf courses boast lush greens where professionals or amateurs alike can work on their swings while trying for a hole-in-one.
