Here are just a few ideas for a San Diego spring break—anchored, naturally, by a stay at Hotel Republic.

Visit the San Diego Zoo & the San Diego Zoo Safari Park

Young and old visitors alike come away delighted from a walk-through or two at the San Diego Zoo, one of the finest and best-known zoological parks in the world. From Elephant Odyssey and the Lost Forest to Africa Rocks and the Australian Outback, enjoy a truly global menagerie here at this Balboa Park landmark—and enjoy a whole slew of restaurants amid all the birds and the beasts. The open-air animal-viewing experience of the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in Escondido, meanwhile, gives you the next best thing to a trip to the Serengeti.

Tour San Diego’s World-Class Museums

Work in some (fun) educational opportunities over spring break by checking out some of the outstanding museums for which San Diego’s famous. A hop, skip, and a jump from Hotel Republic in Balboa Park, you’ll find a spectacular concentration of them, including the Fleet Science Center, the San Diego Natural History Museum, and the San Diego Air & Space Museum. 

Enjoy Springtime Whale-watching

Every year, better than 20,000 gray whales of the northeastern Pacific population make a round-trip journey of more than 10,000 miles between calving grounds in Baja California and summer feeding waters off Alaska. That takes them past the gorgeous San Diego coast two times a year, and the northbound spring migration runs into April. Along with multiple options for whale-watching cruises, you can watch for spouts and tail flukes from the shore at primo San Diego County vantages such as the Cabrillo National Monument on the Point Loma Peninsula and the Birch Aquarium at Scripps.

Go for a Hike

The friendly weather of the San Diego spring invites you and the rest of the gang to hit up a hiking trail or three! You’re spoiled for choices on a Hotel Republic getaway, given the plethora of in-town trails and the basically endless options for Southern California explorations farther afield—from seacoast to mountains to desert.

Near at hand, consider the oceanfront bluffs of Torrey Pines State Reserve, a trek to the highest summit in city limits (1,593-foot Cowles Mountain) in Mission Trails Regional Park, or a photo-op hike to the well-known Potato Chip Rock on Mount Woodson.
