My husband (a native San Diegan) took me to Sea World for the first time on our Honeymoon. I was expecting a slightly cooler version of our local coastal aquarium, boy was I wrong. It's amazing how much interaction they allow you to have with the animals at the park. By far, my favorite part of the experience was the Dolphin encounter. Not only do you get to feed the dolphins, but you can pet their heads and interact with them too. The layout of the park is great, you can cover a lot of ground in a little bit of time, without feeling like you missed a section. I can't wait to go back!
