San Diego Summer Trip

Updated: Sep 22, 2022

We came back to San Diego to enjoy the last weekend of summer with true vacay vibes.

We wanted to go back to Sesame Place to kick start their Halloween Spooktacular event, but we also wanted to enjoy a relaxed family stay and not stay in the heart of Downtown on this trip.

So we decided to stay in Town & Country San Diego, a 23 acre Mission Valley resort still conveniently located just 12min from the heart of SD city, and the beaches; and adjacent to luxury shopping and golf.

Truly a perfect spot for families and it includes three pools, one huge waterslide, private cabanas, and fire pits all around property with complimentary smores at night 🤍

PS: If you are a San Diego local or if you are staying elsewhere, you can also purchase a Day Pass to the resort for $20/adult and $10/kid (free infants) here

They also have great food options:

  • MRKT: where we got gourmet on-the-go bites and our morning coffee

  • LAP IT UP: your poolside lunch + cocktail spot

  • LAPPER Kitchen: SoCal spirit with elevated San Diego comforts like Surf and Turf Nachos, crisp fish tacos and more in a relaxed sportsy poolside restaurant

  • ARLO: A more elevated environment with indoor and outdoor seating, your more fancy-dining spot, but we loved it for family brunch on Sunday!

  • Monkey Bar: has centrally-located fire pits to enjoy their craft cocktails, wood-fired pizzas, and delicious bites with live music Wednesdays through Saturdays

And tons of active activities like volleyball matches, daily health and wellness classes, and family activities!

The mid-century resort has recently completed a multimillion-dollar transformation from top-to-bottom, keeping it's SoCal charisma.

Aside from enjoying the resort life, we escaped to Sesame Place on Saturday (15min drive) to enjoy their Halloween Spooktacular, happening now until Oct 30th. Where you can enjoy the parks 18 Sesame Street-themed rides and water attractions plus, trick-or-treat around the park, Halloween-themed shows, the Sesame Street Halloween Parade, Dance Party, an interactive Spot-The-Ghost Scavenger Hunt, games, and more!

It’s truly ideal for families with kids of all ages. Even us adults have fun! The park also features: - A 500,000-gallon wave pool – one of the largest in Southern California. - An engaging musical play area, an interactive Sesame Street Neighborhood complete with the iconic 123 Stoop - Plenty of food options including vegetarian and gluten free - Complimentary life vest of all sizes - Changing rooms, showers and lockers - Sesame Place San Diego is a Certified Autism Center (CAC) as designated by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). Def recommend this combo for a family SD trip!
