Boutique Hotel Near SeaWorld San Diego

Among the many dimensions of our appeal here at Hotel Republic is our central location in America’s Finest City. With an Autograph Collection perch with us in Downtown San Diego, you’ve got a dazzling diversity of top-draw attractions at your fingertips: from Balboa Park to San Diego Bay itself. 

And those top-draw attractions also include one of the iconic San Diego family destinations: SeaWorld San Diego, a mere 15 minutes or less away in Mission Bay Park. 

SeaWorld San Diego

More than a half-century old, SeaWorld San Diego is one of the best-known oceanariums and theme parks in the world—popular among generations of locals and out-of-town visitors alike. 

The sprawling Mission Bay park includes a slew of aquarium exhibits, from Bat Ray Shallows and Explorer’s Reef Touchpools to Wild Arctic. And then, of course, are the famed marine-mammal shows, including Orca Encounter and Sea Lions Live. Those aren’t the only forms of live entertainment, either: Marvel at the acrobatics on display in Cirque Electrique, or hobnob with Big Bird, Elmo, and other Sesame Street buddies.

Amusement and thrill rides are also a fundamental part of the SeaWorld San Diego experience. These range from the low-key delights of Tentacle Swirl and Elmo’s Flying Fish to such showstopper, heart-pounding experiences as the Manta and Electric Eel launch coasters, Riptide Rescue, and the 320-foot-tall Skytower. Then there’s the newly unveiled Emperor, the loftiest, fastest, and longest dive coaster in all of California. 

Other Mission Bay Attractions

SeaWorld San Diego’s only one of many attractions in 4,600-acre Mission Bay Park, the vastest manmade aquatic park anywhere. Older yet than SeaWorld, Belmont Park has been offering amusement rides along Mission Bay since way back in 1925. And then there’s the long oceanfront boardwalk and enticing sands of Mission Beach, one of San Diego County’s classic beach towns.
