Legoland California is fun any time of year, but you can enjoy fewer crowds and unique entertainment and displays by visiting in the winter. If you’re interested in having a little holiday fun on your trip, check out Legoland California between Thanksgiving and New Year’s for the Holidays at Legoland celebration.

This seasonal experience offers a “Holiday Village” with festive music and lights, live entertainment, and life-sized Lego creations of Santa, a Christmas tree, snowmen, and Santa’s reindeer. Holiday Lego characters will on hand for meet and greets, and there is a new holiday light show! Book a nearby hotel to enjoy a full weekend of excitement at Legoland California.

Skating by the Sea

From Thanksgiving to New Years, enjoy the unique and memory-making experience of ice skating on the beach with your family. The Hotel Del Coronado builds an outdoor ice rink next to the ocean and invites the public to glide with the sound of ocean waves crashing nearby.

Reserve a rinkside lounge to sip on beverages and order from a full menu while watching the skaters. Skating by the Sea will not only be an experience to remember you’ll also get the feel-good vibes of benefiting Make-A-Wish San Diego.

Enjoy a Beach Day

It may not be warm enough to swim, but that shouldn’t stop you and your family from enjoying a day on the beach along the Pacific Ocean. Pack a sweatshirt, blankets, and a picnic to settle into a morning or afternoon of watching the dolphins play in the water. Bring pails to make sand castles and a kite to fly!

Brave parents and kids might be tempted to slip into wetsuits and boogie board in the chilly waters. At the beach, you’re limited only by your imagination.

Hike at Mission Trails Regional Park

Mission Trails Regional Park in La Mesa is one of the largest urban parks in the nation and is full of exploration opportunities for families. The park offers 60 miles of hiking trails, including a 1.5-mile paved loop trail around Lake Murray. A Visitor and Interpretive Center is open daily and showcases the park’s natural and human history. Staff can provide trail maps and recommendations.

Guided nature walks and kids’ craft time are offered many weekends, as well as free concerts and evening star parties. Dogs are welcome at Mission Trails Regional Park on a leash, so you can enjoy time with your entire family (furry members included)!

If you’re looking for a location to spend quality family time in a warm, beautiful environment, look no further than La Mesa, California. With plenty of entertainment, natural areas, and activities for the whole family, you’ll find time to reconnect and enjoy each others company this winter.
