Other attractions to see while in town

We know you’re coming for the most ridiculous party in the world. That being said, if you can find the time, San Diego has some really cool attractions. We recommend visiting local attractions like SeaWorld or San Diego’s World Famous Zoo and Wild Animal Park. Take a ferry ride from Seaport Village downtown San Diego to Coronado Island for a lunch and drink in the sun.
