Experience the best of California at Mission Bay

Mission Bay is an enticing destination boasting cool ocean breezes, immaculate sandy beaches and calm waters. Downtown San Diego is located just a few minutes from Mission Bay, so you'll have access to plenty of activities and entertainment. Mission Bay - Sea World hotels are ideally located because you can visit the region's theme parks as well as a number of San Diego beaches and sightseeing destinations, all from the same “home base.” This prime vacation spot offers activities for families, couples and single travelers looking for an exciting getaway.

What you should see

SeaWorld San Diego

A visit to SeaWorld San Diego will give you the chance to view unique sea creatures up close. The park has several thrill rides, and it presents exciting shows featuring well-trained animals. While there, you and your family will learn about the ways you can help the park's animal conservation efforts.

Mission Bay Park

At Mission Bay Park, you'll have access to 27 miles of winding shoreline that features an assortment of waterways, bays and islets for you to discover. You can reach the park in just a few minutes from downtown San Diego. Sailing, kite surfing and jet skiing are several of the water activities that visitors can participate in at the park. If you don't want to get wet, then you and your family can enjoy a bonfire, barbecue or picnic on the beach.

Belmont Park

Because Belmont Park is a beachfront thrill park in San Diego, you'll have an amazing view of the ocean when you ride the Giant Dipper roller coaster. Park patrons can also ride the merry-go-round, drop tower and the tilt-a-whirl. When you spend a day at Belmont Park, you can eat super-sized ice cream cones and grab a corndog or cheese stick from a local eatery.

Sunset Cliffs

The Sunset Cliffs Natural Park has 68 acres of picturesque terrain. It stretches alongside the Pacific Ocean and borders Point Loma's western side. Sightseeing opportunities at Sunset Cliffs include panoramic ocean views, carved coastal cliffs and sea caves. You may even have the chance to view the California gray whale during its annual migration from the Bering Sea to Baja California.


The Mission Bay area is close to several exceptional museums, which include the Maritime Museum, USS Midway Museum and New Children's Museum. The exhibition centers are inspiring; they give you the chance to view historic ships, refurbished aircraft and interactive child-friendly art.

Where you should stay

Mission Bay - Sea World hotels are diverse and available in a variety of price ranges. Popular resorts in the area include The Dana on Mission Bay, a short stroll from the beach. The hotel has two restaurants serving impressive cuisine and a fun, casual atmosphere.

Travel details

To reach Mission Bay, visitors can choose to fly into the San Diego International Airport (SAN). The Southern California town is also easy to reach by car as you can take one of the major highways, such as Interstates 5, 8 and 15, to get there. Public transportation is available in the form of buses and a light rail system.

Climate details

The San Diego area has one of the most desirable climates in the country. The region experiences warm summers and mild winters. If you visit during the winter and early spring, then you may need to plan your activities around rainfall, but the area's annual precipitation is typically low, so you can visit Mission Bay at any time during the year and still find plenty to do.
