Attractions near the Sheraton Hotel & Marina
World-famous San Diego Zoo
Less than 10 minutes’ drive from the hotel is the iconic San Diego Zoo. Dating back to 1915 and set across 40.5 hectares, the Zoo is home to more than 3,700 exotic, rare and endangered animals from 650 species. It’s also known for its landscaped gardens, which feature more than 700,000 native and exotic plants.
You can take a tour through 70 percent of the Zoo on a double-decker bus that features informative commentary. It’s a great way to see the animals from a unique vantage point. When you’re done, make a beeline for your favourite animals. There are a lot to choose from including koalas, giant pandas, leopards, giraffes, gorillas, lions, hippopotamuses, polar bears, tigers and rhinoceroses.
Exploring the Gaslamp Quarter
It’s just an eight-minute drive from the hotel to San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. Spanning 16 blocks, this historic precinct dates back to 1867 and showcases classic Victorian architecture. Its name derives from the gas lamps that were features of the district in the late-19th and early-20th centuries. These days it’s a hotspot of shopping, dining and entertainment.
Take your time to wander through the boutiques, trendy gift shops and unique local art dealers. You can grab a seat at one of the many cafes to soak up the charming atmosphere and enjoy delicious food and drinks.
