People ask me all the time about deals for Military families in San Diego.   We are very supportive of our military families here in San Diego and I would love to share deals all the time specifically for our readers that are military.   One problem…. there are A LOT of deals for military families, and when there are so many other deals that are coming this way for everyone I am just having a hard time keeping up!

San Diego Zoo Safari Park

Some San Diego businesses do a great job of showing their appreciation to military families, and the theme parks are among the leaders. One of the best values is the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. They give free entrance to the active duty members and reservists who are on active orders – all they need is valid military identification. During my husband’s last deployment we purchased annual passes for the kids and me to help pass the time while he was gone, and when my husband came home, we would go as a family. The Safari Park is located in North County and the San Diego Zoo is in Downtown, so it’s a short drive regardless of where you live. Membership at either is honored at the other, so you get two parks for the price of one. Another great promotion they have is in October where kids 11 and under get in free. Our passes have since expired, but my husband has already promised to take the kids on a totally free trip to both parks while I stay home and get a much deserved break!
