I am so lucky to live in such an amazing city. San Diego has been my home since I was just two months old. There are SO many things to do here in San Diego! We are blessed with the beautiful coast, the mountains, downtown San Diego filled with tons of activities, Sea World, the world famous San Diego Zoo, whale watching, and so much more!
From December through April the gray whales make their annual migration from the Bering Sea down to the warm waters of Souther California and Mexico to breed. One of the largest mammals on the planet, the grey whale mothers find warm shallow bays and lagoons during their massive trip south to give birth to their young. Gray whales have the longest migration of any mammal, and can be spotted in many places in San Diego during these five months.
You can see the gray whales in their migration at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps (a great place to witness many different kinds of sea life).
You can also see the gray whales at Cabrillo National Monument (where you can also visit the Old Point Loma Lighthouse), and Torrey Pines (where there are many hiking trails with breathtaking views of the ocean below).

My family and I LOVE staying at the Marriott on our vacations. We have stayed at the Marriott Resorts on Kuaia, Hawaaii, in Park City, Utah, in Palm Springs, CA, and already have our vacation booked at the Marriott Resort in Lake Tahoe for this summer. I can’t wait!! We are huge fans, and love the luxury and service that we receive when staying at the Marriott.
