Spend the 4th (Wed) exploring the fascinating underwater world at SeaWorld San Diego. The adventure continues: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at San Diego Zoo, stroll around Sunset Cliffs Natural Park, appreciate the history behind Cabrillo National Monument, and let the kids burn off some steam at Balboa Park.
