Ride the bridge, Bike the Bay! Cruise around the San Diego Bay and enjoy your only opportunity to ride across the San Diego Coronado Bay Bridge. This non-competitive community bike ride is for riders of all abilities and will take you on a scenic, and primarily flat ride, around the San Diego Bay via the Bayshore Bikeway. Along the way, riders will travel through the surrounding cities of Coronado, Imperial Beach, Chula Vista and National City before finishing back at the start/finish line at Embarcadero Marina Park in downtown San Diego.

Not only will the scenic 25-mile route travel through all five of these very diverse communities but it will also allow riders their only opportunity of the year to ride over the beautiful Coronado Bay Bridge. All riders will return to San Diego for a post-ride festival with food, beverage, beer garden and entertainment.

$10 – $15

San Diego, CA 92101


One of the top 20 “Must See” seaside festivals in the world according to American Express and USA Today’s 10 Best, the U.S. Sand Sculpting Challenge and Dimensional Art Exposition will return to San Diego’s downtown waterfront for 2019. This will be the eigth year that one of the world’s most important sand-sculpting competitions will be held on this built-for-the-occasion beach, with over 300 tons of sand dumped on the pier on San Diego’s Big Bay. The 8th annual edition will be open to the public Aug. 31 – Sept. 2. The Port of San Diego is again the presenting sponsor, as the event is held on its beautiful Broadway Pier and Landing. So come and celebrate Labor Day on the Bay with us.

World Master Sand Sculptors come from the Netherlands, Italy and Canada, from exotic places like Latvia and Russia to challenge the best in the U.S. Their dimensional art is astounding. You’ll fall in love with it. But you can’t take it with you. The sculptures weigh over 10 tons each and they’d ruin your lawn. So we have over 1,000 works of art that you can fall in love with, buy and take home.

There’s also live entertainment (tribute bands, singers and more), a sand box and rides for kids, a dozen gourmet food trucks, a fantastic view of the bay and all the great stuff that you always find on the Embarcadero, like Seaport Village and the Headquarters, the U.S.S. Midway Museum, Maritime Museum and more!

Stay after dark and celebrate summer during Nighttime Zoo presented by One Medical, June 16 through September 2. Enjoy live music, fun shows, animal encounters, food, and more!

The fun begins before the sun goes down with an amazing trampoline act, Dr. Zoolittle’s special performances, and African-themed entertainment for the whole family. Musicians will serenade and engage guests with tunes ranging from classic rock riffs to jaunty brass band sounds to sweet beats from throughout Africa. A procession of larger-than-life animal puppets headline and end-of-the-evening performance that is sure to wow viewers of all ages.

Young and old alike will want to join in the fun of Zoolahoops and Zoolamoves games. After you’ve worked up an appetite, enjoy delicious items from the limited-time “Happy Happens” menu at Albert’s and food stands throughout the Zoo. Laugh along with Dr. Zoolittle, then indulge in fun photo opportunities with African stilt walkers, pageantry puppets and our beloved San Diego Zoo costume characters like Sydney Koala, Churchill Polar Bear, and others. And, of course, meetings with our keepers and their animal friends add to the excitement.

There’s so much to do, see, and hear – it’s a good thing summer hours are longer! Join us for Nighttime Zoo at the San Diego Zoo, June 16 through September 2.
