When arriving at San Diego International Airport (SAN) from Denver International Airport (DEN), one of the first destinations that visitors frequent is Balboa Park. The location boasts beautiful scenery in addition to more than two dozen museums, eight gardens, live entertainment options and the world famous San Diego Zoo. The zoo serves as home to more than 4,000 animals, spanning 800 different species.
Get a rental car at the airport and exit the area via Interstate 5. The San Diego Embarcadero waterfront hosts a number of attractions that include the historic USS Midway. The 972-foot-long ship is recorded as being the longest serving vessel in the Navy and offers daily tours. The site also features more than 25 military aircraft.
From the marina, guests might also join dinner cruises or walk to Seaport Village, which has a marketplace, restaurants like Harbor House, as well as boutique shops.
The flight from Denver to San Diego will last a short two hours, allowing for plenty of time to explore the Old Town San Diego State Historic Park. The location recreates life during the early 1800s, with a variety of simple adobe buildings that represent homes, a schoolhouse, blacksmith shop and a newspaper office. Antiques and artifacts found here include a carriage collection.
