Kids Eat, Stay and Play For Free-All October Long!

San Diego has always been one of the best spots for families to live or vacation. With plenty of kid-centric attractions and activities to enjoy, The Kids Free incentive is a perfect example of how family friendly San Diego truly is.

For the entire month of October, both residents and tourists can enjoy the once a year Kids Free San Diego offerings which involves FREE access to over 100+ museums, attractions, hotels, tours, restaurants and more!


That’s right. Kids eat, stay and play for free–all month long!


Adults will still need to invest in their own tickets to participate. But many attractions offer adults discounts as well.


The program started just over 30 years ago when the San Diego Zoo decided to celebrate its founding by offering children free access for the month of October. The idea spread, and soon multiple partners got involved.


Save big, and have fun!
