Kids Free San Diego Restaurants

Numerous San Diego restaurants are participating in Kids Free San Diego!  For example, get one child meal free per paid adult meal in any of Loews Coronado Bay’s dining establishments or get a one free kid’s combo meal per paid adult meal (maximum of two kids per paid adult entree) at Galaxy Taco in La Jolla.

Kids Free San Diego Activities

Hundreds of local entertainment venues are offering outstanding kid deals during the month of October too.  Here’s just a small sample of what I found online.

Kids Free San Diego Museums

The San Diego Museum Council is also providing free admission for kids 12 and under to numerous arts, cultural, and science museums in San Diego County.  Remember, you need one coupon per museum visit, so download additional copies.  One coupon is good for up to two free child admissions with one full-price paid adult admission.  Some restrictions apply.
