Winter Play Dates in San Diego with Gymboree 

One thing I’ve come to learn early on as a parent is the importance of play dates. And play dates in San Diego can be quite fun and exciting year round. From our great weather, to our amazing kid-friendly places all around town, San Diego is the place to be when you’re a kid.

Our favorite spot to be lately has been the San Diego Zoo. Not only is it a great place to explore, it’s also a fun and educational way to teach our kids about the many species of animals on this planet of ours.

Plus the fact that the zoo is right next to Balboa Park means we can enjoy a fun morning at the zoo then make our way to the museums (after snagging a bite to eat) in the afternoon!

After the zoo we like to head over to the fountain in front of the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center and enjoy a bite to eat together. Either a homemade pre-packed lunch, or something we’ve grabbed as we head out of the Zoo.

The science center is the perfect way for young curious minds to explore and learn all about science and all while getting a hands on experience. And right down the road from the science center are the San Diego Model Railroad Museum and the San Diego Air and Space Museum.

Both of my kids have a blast at these places and the fact that each of these museums have hands on sections makes them all the more appealing. With #3 coming soon we’ll need great places that all 3 kids love to keep them occupied.

  1. I love to buy my kids clothese from Gymboree! They are very well made. THanks for the tip about the sale!

  2. This is awesome!! I love Gymboree! They makes such quality stuff!! Thanks for the info on the sale!

  3. I used to buy Gymboree all the time when my kiddos were younger–they have great quality clothing at good price points.

  4. Such adorable outfits. I have always loved the quality of these clothes.

  5. It’s so cute that you San Diego people think you’re experiencing winter…. 😉 I remember living in LA and everyone complained when it got below 50!

    • So when we headed out to the park near the zoo to take these photos it was actually 80 degrees!! My daughter’s cheeks are so flushed because she was sweating in the sweater and boots! I don’t know what she’d do if it was 50 degrees out instead…

  6. Those outfits are very cute. Gymboree has such neat outfits for kids. My fav is the squirrel’s shadow shirt. The sweater is sweet too!

  7. These clothes are so cute. I love that purple sweater.
