One of the highlights of our trip to San Diego a year ago was a visit to the San Diego Wild Animal Park in Escondido. It’s one of those places that I wish were closer, as I could go back every day and not be bored.
The facility itself is remarkable, but I encourage you to save some of your splurge money for one of the Park’s special experiences.
We did the Photo Caravan Safari, and chose the last tour of the day, which departed after the Park closes. Being among the only guests in the park is in itself cool, but you cannot beat the experience of feeding a giraffe.
New this summer at the Wild Animal Park, a Wilderness Ridge Mule Ride.
