For me, strolling along Oceanside City Beach in north San Diego County is like walking down memory lane. It’s a place for my family to reconnect over Thanksgiving, meaning time with my parents, my sister, my brother-in-law, and my niece and nephew. This slice of what the locals call “North County” means more to me than good weather; it’s also where my nephew learned how to make sandcastles and my mom and sister go shell searching.
Plenty of families come to San Diego to make memories. With Legoland, the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld and a host of other attractions for kids, the city is the sixth-ranked in the country for family travel, according to US News and World Report. There are experiences for both children and parents to enjoy here in the year-round Southern California sunshine – and these resorts and hotels are custom-made for the whole clan to enjoy.
