This is one of our favorite Southern California theme parks. It offers a variety of marine life, shows, rides, fireworks and loads of fun. In 2017, they are changing their shows to be more animal friendly. SeaWorld has recently opened Aquatica Water Park in San Diego, so check that out too if you are visiting in June - September.
