When asked "What to see in San Diego?" One of the most frequent answers is ... "SeaWorld!", But in reality it is a very famous brand all over the States: in addition to the one in Texas, in San Antonio, the best known park with this name is perhaps that of Orlando in Florida (you have taken a look at our article about Orlando parks?). But the first park to open with this name was the one in San Diego. SeaWorld San Diego it is located right in the city, on 500 Sea World Drive, in the Mission Bay area, a stone's throw from the Pacific.
