During the month of October 2014, more than 90 San Diego hotels, restaurants, attractions, museums and transportation companies offer families with children specials, so they can enjoy San Diego on a budget. "Kids Free San Diego" provides families an opportunity to save during budget-conscious times with a variety of "kids free" incentives, ranging from free attraction admission, meals and Amtrak rides to welcome amenities at area hotels.
In October after the summer beach crowds leave, visitors to San Diego can enjoy the region's sunny weather and warm temperatures and experience activities for the whole family. Some highlights of the 3rd annual "Kids Free San Diego" month include:
